Date: Sunday, 24 June 2018
Kick-Off at 21:30 UK
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta).

Two in-form sides, Atlanta United and Portland Timbers are going to face each other in Major League Soccer on Sunday evening.

The hosts are the top placed team in the Eastern Conference and they have lost just three times this season. They are in a fine form as home side hasn’t been defeated in the last four matches. Josef Martinez and the lads are the most productive team in Major League Soccer while their defence was pretty decent. If they can keep up the form, Atlanta United might become one of the top favourites for the title.

The visitors are sitting on the 6th place in the Western Conference, however they have been in a superb form lately. Portland Timbers haven’t been defeated in the last ten matches in all competitions and they got back in the game for the playoff spot at the end of the regular season. Although Giovanni Savarese’s side haven’t scored too many goals, their defence did a fairly good job.

Atlanta United vs Portland Timbers: Prediction

The hosts are favourites in this one, however they won’t have an easy task as their opponents are in a very good run. Atlanta United are playing excellent at home and they should be able to book another victory in front of their fans.

Surprisingly, both sides have been involved in low scoring matches lately and the visitors managed to keep the clean sheet in the last three matches. however, this time we are expecting to see goals in both nets. Over 2.5 should be a nice banker bet.
