Atlanta United vs Toronto FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 9th May 2019
Kick-off at 00.00 UK/ 01.00 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta).
Toronto has a major chance to make it to the top of the Eastern Conference table, as they have three games in hand, compared to the top three, while they sit comfortably in the fourth position. Despite having played this many games fewer, they have scored the most number of goals in the table and looks like an early playoff contender.
Atlanta, similar to Toronto, has played three games fewer, but is struggling for a place in the top-seven, and thus even the playoffs 1/8 finals. But they look like a team slowly finding their groove, and to begin from – they have the home advantage in this next tie.

Atlanta United vs Toronto FC Prediction
Atlanta holds an envious record at home, and have consistently outperformed teams. In fact, in the last ten months, the team has lost only once, and have not once failed to find the back of the net in any of these ties. In the meanwhile, Toronto was winless in 17 of their last 22 away ties and lost six of their last eight on the road. The team also conceded two or more goals in 15 of their last 22 games away from home.
With Atlanta desperate to climb back into the playoff zone, expect them to record a win in this tie. But Toronto has really been on form recently. It’s admirable that they are fourth in the table, with three ties in hand, and have also scored the most number of goals so far. If they manage just four points from these three fixtures, the squad would be at the top of the table. Expect a tough fight from the visitors. They might lose, but they surely are not returning empty-handed.
Moreover, Atlanta has conceded two or more goals in every single h2h tie and four goals in the last meeting alone. Expect goals from both teams this Thursday.
