  • Atlanta has lost thrice in their last five trips away from home.

New York City FC vs Atlanta United Prediction

Whenever these teams have contested, the home team has always been the favorites. There has never been an away win. And as the playoffs are at their most intense level, it is highly unlikely that New York City would let go of this chance to perform well in their home for the first leg and gain the psychological victory even before the second leg.

New York has been on fine form lately. Especially at home, they have been virtually invincible. To be precise they have lost just once in their last 22 matches at home. Whereas Atlanta has been struggling for the last month. On the road too their record is lacking in the last few weeks.

Their last five away games saw three losses. This being a high-pressure playoff match, Atlanta is expected to suffer for long spells in the match.

As two of the best teams look to progress to the finals, it is imperative that there will be a lot of goals, especially when the teams involved are Atlanta and New York City.
