Atlanta United will be looking for their fifth consecutive home triumph when they host New York City FC at Mercedes Benz Stadium for MSL action this week. This amazing Eastern Conference meeting is set for October 21st 2021 at 02:30 EAT.
Atlanta United is currently in the fifth place with 42 points after 29 matches played and their recent performances have been impressive. They head into this match aiming for another win following a 2-0 MLS triumph against Toronto FC.
New York City on the other side are occupying the eighth place with 40 points also after 29 matches however their recent performance has been unsteady. In their previous match they lost 1-0 New York Red Bulls.
The Five Stripes have had a good run this season, four of the last five matches they hosted ended with wins, while New York City won only one of the last five away games they traveled to. Furthermore, three of the last five head-to-head encounters between the two clubs ended with a win for Atlanta United.
We vote for Atlanta United to take victory in this game however we should not expect goals over 2.5, these two sides are known for defensive game play in their recent fixtures.
