Venue: Red Bull Arena (New Jersey).
The top two sides on the East are set to take on each other in a mouth-watering MLS derby on Sunday afternoon ta Red Bull Arena. The clash will provide a nice chance for the hosts to narrow the gap behind Conference leaders down to a single point with a victory here.
The Bulls are pretty safe in the battle for the top-two finish being six points ahead of city rivals with a game in hand on the third-placed Pigeons as well. The second place has practically been secured knowing there are just three matches left to play after this weekend.
The hosts will come into this in high spirits following a 2-0 victory over the MLS Cup defending champions Toronto. Alejandro Romero and Derick Etienne bagged goals in a clean sheet win eight days ago.

New York Red Bulls vs Atlanta United: Prediction
Much like New York RB, the Five Stripes will also enter the game high on confidence. They made it three wins on the spin last Saturday beating Real Salt Lake 2-0 at home. Goals came from Julian Gressel and Hector Villalba.
Gerardo Martino’s men were particularly inspired in the final third in recent outings. They bagged eight goals in last three wins. New York showed plenty of defensive holes in recent outings with Montreal Impact and DC United allowing three goals against each of these rivals.
The bets of betting options here would thus be Atlanta United to net two or more goals in the match at 2.00 odds. You can alternatively back the table-toppers to stay undefeated at the 1.57 odds.
