Venue: Talen Energy Stadium (Chester).
New York City will be eagerly looking toward the outcome of this tie, as the two toppers of the Eastern Conference take on each other. Both Union and United have posted the same number of points on the board, and the winner of this game will gain major inroads in the title-race. Moreover, with City looming behind, a victory is kind of a needed result for these titans.
Going on, while Atlanta does have the confidence of being the reigning MLS champion, their stats on the road are not that impressive and coupling this to Philly’s form at home, fans at the Talen Energy Stadium are hoping for a great day.

Philadelphia Union vs Atlanta United Prediction
While Atlanta has won their last three away games in a row, it needs to be taken into account that, before this stretch, they had lost six of their previous seven appearances on the road. This becomes particularly true when it’s mentioned that Philly was unbeaten in 12 of their former 13 home ties, and of which nine were wins.
As such, count on the hosts to avoid a loss this Sunday.
Furthermore, the fact that Atlanta has won nine of their last ten overall match-ups, and their prior three on the road, holds merit despite their struggles in dealing with away handicap. Also, they are so far unbeaten against this opponent and have never failed to find the back of the net.
With these stats making a certain point, the chances for BTTS to occur are very high in this game.
