Jim Curtin’s side hasn’t scored too many goals but their defence did a solid job. Philadelphia Union have been performing well at home ground as they allowed just two defeats in front of their fans.

The visitors are sitting on the top spot of the Eastern Conference and they are performing very well this season. However, their recent displays haven’t been too convincing as they booked only two win in the last five rounds.

Gerardo Martino’s side is the most efficient team in their conference by scoring 40 goals so far in the season. Atlanta United is putting pretty good displays when playing away from home and they managed to snatch five victories at away grounds.

Philadelphia Union vs Atlanta United: Prediction

This one is going to be a very interesting clash, and although the visitors are slight favourites in this one, they definitely won’t have an easy task. Philadelphia United are very dangerous when playing at home ground and they might be able to remain undefeated in this one.

Although the hosts haven’t been involved in a lot of efficient matches this season, these two teams should keep up their tradition. Atlanta United are very productive and in this one the crowd should be able to see goals in both nets.
