Date: Saturday, 24 July 2021
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Columbus are the reigning champions of the competition, and they are on a long unbeaten run at the moment. Meanwhile, Atlanta are going through a winless streak, and they also have a poor h2h record against this foe. As such, expect a win for Columbus this weekend.
At present, the Crew are placed sixth in the Eastern table, and they need a surplus of just two points to climb to the second sot.
Since four of the five teams above them have tough fixtures this match-day, it’s an opportunity for the title-holders to break into a podium position this weekend with a win.
In the meantime, Atlanta have won just twice so far this season, and they also have scored a total of just 14 goals from their 14 league games till now. Moreover, they also have an inferior h2h record against this rival over the years.
For the reasons, expect a win for Columbus this Saturday.
