Atlanta United vs San Jose Earthquakes
USA Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 21 September
Kick-off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta).
The reigning champions will host San Jose Earthquakes in yet another bout in this season of the MLS.
Atlanta United is currently at the third place in the Eastern Conference while the visitors have rested at the sixth place on the Western Conference.
The host had recently experienced a double loss with the previous one at home. This might slightly damage their strength but the champions are sure to bounce back into the league.
Similarly, the Quakes have also lost the last two games with both being away games. They have not won in the last five away fixtures and have a hard-luck in changing those stats against the Champs.

Atlanta United vs San Jose Earthquakes Prediction
On account of their two meetings in the last two years, one thing that is noticeable is that there was a rain of goals in both the clashes. The teams combined to score 13 goals in two matches with both teams scoring in them both. Moreover, they have an average of 6 goals per match and this assures that the match will probably see both teams slotting in a couple.
The champions have maintained their strong form in the new edition too and would have been unbeaten at home for the last sixteen matches if it was not for their previous defeat. However, the visiting side is winless for the past five away games and that reduces their chances of winning the three points.
Henceforth, the match will probably have fireworks at both ends of the field with the home team leading at the end of the game.
