Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 15th July 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Mercedes Benz Stadium (Atlanta).

Atlanta United are top of the Eastern conference and will try to remain there when they take on Seattle Sounders at the weekend.

Atlanta have a 3 point lead over New York City and these two teams look like the most likely to wrap up their conference. Atlanta have dropped some points lately like losing to Dallas but they bounced back in their last game by beating Philadelphia Union 2-0. At home they have won 50% of their points which is lower than usual but they have gone their last 3 home games undefeated.

Seattle Sounders are in 10th place in the Western conference and are struggling. They have gone 2 games undefeated but draws have led to inconsistency and they have let a gap develop where they are now 10 points from the play offs and likely to miss out.

They Sounders lost 5 of their 9 games away from home but there has been signs of encouragement where they have gone their last two games unbeaten on the road.

Atlanta United vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction

Atlanta has proven to be one of the strongest teams in the MLS and we will be backing them to beat Seattle Sounders. They are stronger in all departments and New York City are giving them a lot of pressure to remain in the top position.

The home side won’t have it all their own way and we expect a physical battle but they have the better quality and we can see them scoring a few goals on their way to a victory.
