Atlanta United vs New York Red Bulls
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 12 July 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
Group E is such a curious mixture of teams. While in this upcoming encounter we have two of the best teams in the league, the other two in the group could be considered as two of the worst in the whole competition.
As such, the winner of this fixture could easily become the topper, and as a result, they could get an easier opponent in the Round of 16.
Likely, we could expect a fierce encounter this Sunday – and especially so since the two squads love to score goals. In fact, the latest h2h clash had a total of six goals.
As a result, expect a goal-fest at the ESPN Complex.
Atlanta United vs New York Red Bulls: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns, spoils were shared with a 3-3 scoreline.
- The biggest win was recorded by the Five Stripes – a 3-0 win back in 2018.
- However, they had failed to keep a clean sheet in five of the preceding six clashes.
- The Metros conceded three or more goals in two of the preceding four match-ups.
- Every single match-up where Chris Armas’s men were on the road, had three or more goals.
Atlanta United vs New York Red Bulls: Prediction
The Five Stripes were the champions of the MLS in 2018. However, they were not able to defend their title the next years, and will surely love to lift the trophy this time around.
A win this Sunday will surely help them a lot on that account, as the three points in this game could practically guarantee them the top spot (as the other two teams are minnows).
They had also scored the third-most number of goals in the whole league in 2019, and had scored three or more goals in two of the past four h2h clashes.
On the other hand though, their counterparts have been the dominant side in h2h clashes over the years, and they have scored two or more goals in 100% of face-to-face matches where they were away from home.
As such, expect a goal-fest this Sunday between these two in-form squads.
