Columbus Crew vs Atlanta United
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium.
Columbus Crew finally managed to end the dismal run of three consecutive losses last weekend when they trashed Montreal Impact 4-1 on the home patch.
The Crew will be looking to build on this fine attacking display and claim yet another home victory this Saturday when they are about to host the league’s newcomers Atlanta United.
Federico Higuain and Ola Kamara continued their spell of excellent form last weekend when they bagged three of their team’s four goals in the mentioned demolishing win over Montreal.
It was the second consecutive home win by three goals for the Crew who had previously demolished the defending champions Seattle Sounders 3-0 at MAPFRE Stadium.
The lethal trio in Columbus’ attack should have plenty of room to operate on Saturday wince Atlanta are everything but a well organised team at the back.
Former Barcelona’s and Argentine’s national team head coach Gerardo Martino has huge troubles with fining the right formula in the defense.
Atlanta are especially vulnerable on the road where they lost five and drew one of their last six matches.
Columbus Crew vs Atlanta United: Head to head
This will be the second head to head encounter between the two teams in this term of MLS.
Atlanta came out victorious from the clash from two weeks ago at Bobby Dodd Stadium thanks to goals from Hector Villaba, Miguel Almiron and Jozef Martinez.
Columbus Crew vs Atlanta United: Prediction
We can again expect a goal fest since neither Columbus nor Atlanta play defense at all.
However, the final outcome will likely be different this time out because Atlanta are a completely different team when they play on the road.
