Orlando City vs Atlanta United
2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 25 August 2018
Kick-off at 1:00 UK/ 2:00 CET
Venue: Orlando City Stadium.
Orlando City will be hosting the league leaders in the Orlando City Stadium for this weekend matchup.
Orlando city is currently in a struggling state having lost 5 of their last league matches with the latest being a 3-2 loss to DC United. They are trailing in the 10th place of the eastern conference standings with only 23 points in 24 matches.
Most notably, Orlando city easily concedes goals, something that has made them see at least 2 goals in every league fixture. Moreover, there have been over 2.5 goals in 16 out of 18 matches.
There is a high doubt whether Kjestan, one of the most influential players of Orlando city will be in this matchup since he is suffering a right ankle injury.
This is definitely a sign of a drastic loss of form. Although scooping 3 points from this match is next to impossible, they should put up a fight against the visitors.
Atlanta United are in high spirits because of their continued command in the league and are enjoying an unbeaten run in 6 league games. They will be on the road for this encounter with a struggling side and we can’t expect anything less than a win in this matchup.
The coach assured the fans through a recent update that the dangerous trio of Hector Villalba, Miguel Almiron, and Josef Martinez will remain in the starting lineup. The trio is very dangerous and displayed incredible skills when they participated in demolishing Columbus crew with 3 goals to 1.
