Orlando City vs Atlanta United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 31 July 2021
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Exploria Stadium.
Orlando have been one of the best teams in the East this season, and they are placed third in the table at the moment. Meanwhile, Atlanta are one of the worst, and are on a long winless run. As such, expect Orlando to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
Only three teams have scored more goals than Orlando this season, and they are also in possession of the third spot in the table, despite having a fixture in hand.
However, they have been on a rough streak lately, and have dropped some points. The team surely is desperate and will be going after the win this Saturday.
In the meantime, Atlanta have won just twice all through this campaign, and are one of the three teams in the conference to stay winless in the past five match-days.
Likely, expect a win for Orlando at the Exploria.
