Atlanta United vs Philadelphia Union Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atlanta United were able to get a 2-0 win over Montreal Impact to move into the top three of the Eastern Conference 2017 table. Hector Villalba opened the scoring after 28 minutes with a brilliant long-range strike, but Atlanta had to wait until the 73rd minute to make the game safe with Jeff Larentowicz’ team. Philadelphia Union were able to get a first win since the start of August, as they beat Chicago Fire 3-1 at the Talen Energy Stadium. A brace from Chris Pontius and a goal from Charles Sapong put Philadelphia 3-0 ahead by the 64th minute. Paunovic’s team did pull one back through Luis Solignac in the 67th minute, but it was unable to provide the club with anything out of the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The only previous meeting between Atlanta and Philadelphia ended in a draw at the Talen Energy Stadium. This time around, Atlanta come into the game in a much better form. The club also have the top two places in their sights after the weekend results. Gerardo Martino’s team are a great pick for a victory in this game.

Philadelphia Union have failed to score in four out of the last six away games. Atlanta United have been a team with plenty of goals, but their form at the new Mercedes Benz stadium has been imperious with four clean seats in the last five. I see tremendous value in backing Atlanta United for a clean sheet.

Atlanta United Preview

Atlanta United have now set their sights upon making a surprise plunge into the top two places of the Eastern conference. After a tremendous run in form over the last few weeks, the club are now just three points behind New York City. Gerardo Martino may have ruled out the possibility of overtaking Toronto at the top of the table, despite Greg Vanney’s team going through a surprise slump. Yet, the possibility of catching New York City and even disposing Patrick Vieira’s team from the second spot is now realistic. Atlanta are just three points behind having played a game fewer than New York City. Josef Martinez is the top scorer at the club with 17 goals.

Atlanta United Team News

Manager Gerardo Martino will be without Brandon Vazquez for this match due to suspension.

Philadelphia Union Preview

Philadelphia Union were finally able to end the long wait for a victory, and it was always about to come at the Talen Energy Stadium. An incredible eight out of their nine league victories this season have come at home, as the club have struggled on the road. The club have only four matches left in the season. Union may have put enough buffer between them and the bottom of the table. DC United are the lowest ranked team in the Eastern Conference and the club are just five points behind in the table. Charles Sapong is the top scorer at Philadelphia with 14 goals.

Philadelphia Union Team News

Ken Tribbett (Achilles tendon), Brian Carroll (back), and Fabian Herbers (hernia) are the players unavailable for Atlanta United.
