Atlanta United vs New England Prediction
Being unbeaten against the visitors in the last three years gives confidence for the host ahead of the MLS playoffs. Besides that, the teams have met recently in the regular MLS session last week, and the host had defeated the Revs in a 3-1 score.
The host has shown their excellence in the MLS fixtures with finishing at the 3rd in overall position before the playoffs. Facing a side resting at the 14th overall spot in the MLS table will not threaten the Five Stripes to a larger extent.
Apart from that, the host is strong at home with just one loss in the last ten home matches. Meanwhile, the journey on road has been rough for the Revs with just two wins in the prior ten away fixtures in the MLS season. As the teams have met recently, it will give enough time to study each other and prepare for the clash.
With their last season MVP Joseph Martinez finding the back of the net consecutively, we can expect the home team to depend on him to score and lead the host to victory.
