Atlanta United vs Toronto FC
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday 4th August 2018
Kick off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta).

Atlanta United are continuing the form that has kept them in 1st position in the Eastern conference.

Back to back wins against DC United and Montreal Impact has given the club a 4 point lead at the top over New York City.

But the wins need to continue if they want to claim the conference given that New York does have a game in hand to play.

At home Atlanta United has won 7 of their 12 games with just 2 losses and they are undefeated for over two months in front of their home fans. They are scoring goals too and are averaging over 2 goals a game at their stadium.

Toronto FC are a huge 25 points behind their opponents and they are in 10th place. They are 6 points from a play-off position, however it isn’t all doom and gloom for the side.

This is because they come into this game having won their last 2 matches. Both wins were against Chicago Fire where they played them home and away.

Even though the Fire are amongst the worst form teams in the league these victories would have given Toronto FC some good confidence.

Atlanta United vs Toronto FC: Prediction

Whilst it’s true that Toronto FC will have some confidence in winning their last 2 games it was against the same team.

Atlanta United are much better than them, and have a better team and are playing at home.

They start this game as odds on favourites so we will change our tactics here and go for the home side to win and both teams to score.

This is on par with the history and Toronto FC have not been goal shy lately.
