Atlanta United vs Toronto FC Prediction
The host has lost only one game in the last ten home matches in their schedule. Also, the host has scored in all of it. In the meantime, the visitor has lost two and won only three of the last ten away fixtures in the major competitions.
Moreover, the host has been unbeaten at home in all their h2h encounters with the Reds. Also, the previous h2h clash at the Five Stripe’s home awarded a clean sheet 2-0 win for the host. Furthermore, when their defense is solid, victory is almost guaranteed with 16 clean sheet wins in their previous 20 MLS victories.
However, the guest has extended a 12-game unbeaten streak in the regular season MLS. Even though Toronto is strong, they still have not beaten the host at their home.
As such, based on their supremacy in the MLS regular season and the inevitable form of Joseph Martinez in the league, the host has more chance of winning the bout. Hence, we can count upon the host to reach the finals of the MLS season.
