Atlanta United vs Toronto FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atlanta United failed to take advantage of teams above them dropping points, as they were involved in a goalless draw with New York Red Bulls. Atlanta had the better chances in the first half with the likes of Hector Villalba going close, while the home team dominated the second half with Bradley Wright Phillips and Gonzalo Veron going close. Toronto were able to get a close 1-0 win over Montreal Impact to continue their positive conclusion to the regular season. Jozy Altidore scored the only goal of the game in the 16th minute, while Sebastian Giovinco missed a penalty in first-half injury time. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Atlanta and Toronto take on each other for only the second time. The previous meeting between the two clubs ended in an entertaining draw. After being on the verge of qualifying to the play-offs automatically, Atlanta may not be in the best frame of mind coming into the game. Toronto, meanwhile, would be happy with a point from a difficult trip, as Atlanta have a strong home record with three wins in the last four. I would go with a draw in this game. Jozy Altidore is on form after scoring in four out of his last five appearances for Toronto. He has only failed to score in the home game against New York Red Bulls in this run. Altidore will be motivated by the possibility of overtaking Sebastien Giovinco in the scoring charts at Toronto. I see good reason to back Altidore to score anytime in the game.

Draw – 5/2

Jozy Altidore to score anytime – 13/8

Atlanta United Preview

Atlanta have been a hugely entertaining team so far this season, but Gerardo Martino will be disappointed with the way the regular season is coming to a conclusion for his team. Despite having several good opportunities to enter into the top two places, it looks like Atlanta will have to settle for a play-off place after remaining two points behind New York City in the Eastern conference. The final match of the season for Atlanta is not easy with the team taking on Toronto, but Martino will be aware that building confidence will be essential the play-offs. Josef Martinez is the leading scorer at the club with 18 for the season.

Atlanta United Team News

Atlanta manager Gerardo Martino will be without Hugo Almiron (muscle) due to injury.

Toronto FC Preview

Toronto are set to end the regular season in a positive fashion, and it is extremely important for the team take the momentum and confidence into the play-offs. After having been a dominant force for the majority of the MLS 2017 second half, surprise defeats against the likes of Montreal Impact and New England Revolution threatened to derail Toronto’s aim to win the MLS Cup 2017. Now, the club have picked up pace once again with back-to-back wins. Toronto have been the top scorers in the division by a significant margin, as the team has netted 72 goals – four more than Atlanta – in the 33 games. Sebastien Giovinco is their leading scorer with 15 for the season.

Toronto FC Team News

Toronto manager Greg Vanney does not have any injuries or suspensions coming into the game.
