Seattle Sounders vs Atlanta United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 14 July 2019
Kick-off at 20:55 UK/ 21:55 CET
Venue: CenturyLink Field (Seattle).
Both the third-placed teams from either conference take on each other in this thrilling encounter. Despite the positioning being similar, the chances for Atlanta to rise up the ranks are much higher than their counterparts – the reason being, they have games in hand, while trailing by a few numbers of points behind the toppers.
Same is not the case for Seattle. Both the LA teams have a huge lead over them, and especially Los Angeles FC. Already behind by 11 points, the title-dreams are drifting away each match-day.
Another point to be considered is the setting of this tie. While the Sounders have the home advantage, where they are obviously at their best, Atlanta will have a mountain to climb with the away handicap.

Seattle Sounders vs Atlanta United Prediction
The Sounders were unbeaten in nine of their last ten matches and won seven of them as well. Moreover, in front of the home crowd, the team had multiple winning streaks of four, four, and five games each, in the last several weeks.
Meanwhile, the opposite is the scenario for Atlanta when on the road. They lost four of their last five away ties, and also had a five-tie losing run while their counterparts were doling out wins at their home. In addition, they also conceded two or more goals in their last four matches on the road and five in their last trip alone.
Finally, not a single h2h encounter has resulted in a loss for the home team. Expect the trend to keep on going, with the hosts having a strong outing.
