Atlanta United vs Colorado Rapids Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Atlanta will seek to return to winning ways this weekend following a 2-1 defeat at the hands of DC United in the midweek action. Julien Gressel opened the scoring in the 17th minute, but the scores were equalised just six minutes later after a mistake from goalkeeper Alec Kann allowed Luciano Acosta to get on the score sheet. Patrick Nyarko completed the comeback for DC United with a coolly slotted volley from just outside the penalty box. Colorado Rapids succumbed to a 1-3 defeat at home to LA Galaxy. Galaxy’s John McBean bagged his first goals of the season with a brace on either side Dillon Serna’s 37th-minute goal for the Rapids, while Romain Alessandrini completed the rout with a penalty in the 71st minute.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Atlanta United have been extremely strong at home with four wins in the last five league games. The Bobby Dodd Stadium has been a tough place for visiting teams, while Colorado Rapids come into the game after having lost all six away games this season. Furthermore, Colorado have scored only two goals in these six games. I would back Atlanta United for a win.

Hugo Almiron has scored in his last three home games for Atlanta United. He has grabbed an impressive six goals in these three home games. Even though the Paraguayan has scored only once in the last four league games, I would back Almiron to score anytime in the game.

Atlanta United win – 13/20

Hugo Almiron to score anytime – 7/4

Atlanta United saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Atlanta United are undefeated in all of their last 1 games against Colorado Rapids

Atlanta United Preview

Atlanta currently linger in seventh place of the Eastern Conference table following seven defeats in 16 league games. The club have won just two of their five MLS outings, and this has pulled them to seventh in the standings – one point below the playoff positions. At home, they have managed a much better record with four wins in the last five games. Atlanta hold the best goal scoring record (32) in the 2017 MLS regular season but they also concede several goals – 25 in the 16 league outings. Miguel Almiron is the club’s top-scorer in the league with eight goals.

Atlanta United Team News

Jacob Petersen (leg), Anton Walkes (calf), and Kenwyne Jones (knee) are out injured, while there are no suspensions.

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids find themselves rock bottom of the Western Conference with 16 points. The club were on a run of three successive wins before the 3-1 loss to Los Angeles Galaxy. The Rapids are the second lowest scoring team in the MLS 2017 season with 15 goals, but they have conceded only 22 goals in the league despite being bottom of the Western conference. With two games extra to play in comparison to some of their rivals, the Rapids could be on the rise in the coming games to push towards the playoff spot. Dominique Badji is the leading scorer for the team with four goals in 15 appearances.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Bismark Adjei-Boateng (lumbar vertebra fracture), Shkelzen Gashi (muscle), and Bobby Burling (foot) are injured for Colorado Rapids.
