Atlanta United vs Orlando City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atlanta United announced their return to form in emphatic fashion after beating New England Revolution 7-0 at the new Mercedes Benz stadium. Josef Martinez came up with a first-half hat-trick, while New England were reduced to nine men after straight red cards for Xavier Kouassi and Antonio Delamea. Atlanta took advantage of this substantial numerical advantage with goals from Anton Walkes, Kevin Kratz, Yamil Asad, and Hector Villalba. Orlando City ended an eight-game winless run with a 2-1 victory over DC United. Early goals from Cyle Larin and Giles Barnes set up a convincing score. Orlando were able to win the game even with red cards to Servando Carrasco and Sebastien Hines. Kofi Opare came up with a late consolation for DC United. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Orlando are searching for the first win over Atlanta United, as they have only been able to take a point from the two matches against this opponent. However, the Mercedes Benz stadium has provided a great fortress for Atlanta, who have managed a 10-0 aggregate victory over the last two matches. I would go with a win for Atlanta United.

Hector Villalba has scored in his both matches against Orlando City. He ended his four-game drought with an injury time goal against New England Revolution. I see great value in backing Hector Villalba to score anytime in the game.

Atlanta United win – 1/2

Hector Villalba to score anytime – 8/5

Atlanta United Preview

After going through a run of four winless matches, Atlanta United were in danger of dropping out of the top six. However, manager Gerardo Martino has been able to steady the ship in impressive fashion after managing two big wins. Atlanta have made it into the top six while also managing to establish a sizeable advantage in the process. The club have a six-point advantage over Montreal Impact, who sit just outside the play-offs, despite having played one game less. The club were able to completely take advantage of New England Revolution’s misfortunes in the recent game. Josef Martinez is now the top scorer at the club with 13 league goals.

Atlanta United Team News

Kenwyne Jones (knee) and Alec Kann (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Atlanta United.

Orlando City Preview

The end to the disappointing run of winless matches could not have come at a better time for Orlando City and manager Jason Kreis, who has been experiencing a lot of pressure in recent weeks. However, this victory does not significantly enhance the club’s play-off hopes, as Orlando have fallen seven points behind New York Red Bulls in the sixth place while having played a game more. Orlando will be realistically looking to avoid the bottom two places of the Eastern Conference in the last few matches. Cyle Larin is the top scorer at Orlando with 11 league goals.

Orlando City Team News

Kaka, Servando Carrasco, and Sebastien Hines are the players suspended for the game. Josh Saunders (neck), Cristian Higuita (unknown), Rafael Ramos (hamstring), Kevin Alston (knee), and Ritchie Laryea (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Orlando City.
