Atlanta United vs DC United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atlanta United were crushed by Houston Dynamo in the opening game of the 2018 campaign, as Gerardo Martino’s team lost 4-0. A brilliant first-half performance from the hosts witnessed goals from Andrew Wenger, Philippe Senderos, Mauro Manotas, and Darwin Ceren. Even though Atlanta had an opportunity to score a consolation in the second-half, Hugo Almiron missed the penalty in the 49th minute. DC United allowed a last-gasp equaliser to draw 1-1 with Orlando City. Yamil Asad provided DC United with a surprise lead in the 32nd minute. DC United’s case for a victory looked stronger when Victor Pagliari received a straight red card in the 41st minute. However, Stefano Pincho equalised in the final few seconds to deny Ben Olsen’s team a winning start.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Even though DC United came in with a decent performance in the recent league game against Orlando, they would be facing an Atlanta team that has received a lot of backlash for their performance in the opening game. As a result, Gerardo Martino will expect a tremendous improvement from his players and they have the potential to give him the same. DC United were helped by the red card for Orlando in the recent game. In the absence of such aids, I would go with a win for Atlanta United. DC United seemed to have a decent attack for this MLS 2018 campaign, as the likes of Yamil Asad and Darren Mattocks showed quality to score. They may capitalise on Atlanta’s defence, which was in shambles in the first half against Houston. I would back both teams to score.

Atlanta United Preview

Atlanta United were one of the surprise packages at the start of the 2017 MLS campaign, but a huge loss against Houston Dynamo in the opening game of this 2018 season places Gerardo Martino under a lot of pressure straight away. Even though Atlanta improved considerably after the first-half hour show against Houston, it would not be surprising to see the club being demoted from their position as the dark horse for the MLS Cup title – even on the basis of just one performance. Last season’s key players like Jackson Martinez and Hugo Almiron have to play a key role in order to help the club revealed the fortunes.

Atlanta United Team News

Jon Gallagher (malleolar), Leonardo Gonzalo Pirez (hip), and Ezequiel Barco (muscle) are unavailable due to injuries.

DC United Preview

DC United seemed to have made a considerable improvement compared to last season’s performances, as the team almost came close to getting a victory in the first match of the season. Last season, DC United fared just nine wins in the 34 league matches while suffering 20 defeat in the process. Manager Ben Olsen has worked hard to make some changes to the squad and they can make a difference; Yamil Asad showed the point in case after scoring on his debut.

DC United Team News

Taylor Kemp (hernia) and Russell Canouse (knee) are unavailable for the club due to injuries.
