Toronto vs Atlanta United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 June 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: BMO Field (Toronto).
Toronto is one of the few teams to go winless in their last five match-days in the East. They do have a spot in the promotional mix currently, but with sides below them in better form, their position is severely threatened.
Their last tie was on the road against FC Dallas, which ended in a huge defeat for the guests. A total of three goals came towards the end of the first half and in the beginning phase of the second, to firmly place the visitors out of contention.
Opponents Atlanta have two matches in hand, and if employed well, they could take the spot of the topper for themselves. This season, their strategy has hugely incorporated defensive tweaks, and it has seen the team conceding just 11 goals, while eight of the total twelve squads failing to keep it even below 20. It must be mentioned though, that the performances of their backline tend to drop away from home.

Toronto vs Atlanta United Prediction
Toronto is winless in their last eight games and conceded two or more goals in ten of their last thirteen fixtures. At home, they avoided winning in their last five attempts, and let in two or more goals in six of their last seven appearances.
Meanwhile, Atlanta has the top spot in sights and is going after it. They won the last four games on the trot, and nine of their last eleven as well. They also scored two or more goals in their last four matches. On the road, they won four of their last six trips.
Importantly, Atlanta has never failed to score against this team and did so twice or more in every match bar once. As such, expect them to at least avoid a loss at any cost.
Going on, Toronto does have the home advantage, and they found the back of the net in 20 of their last 21 home ties, whereas Atlanta conceded twice or more in six of their last ten fixtures on the road. Finally, every h2h encounter, except for one, had goals by both teams.
Count on the same to happen this week in the MLS.
