DC United vs Atlanta United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

DC United were able to secure their first league victory since June in incredible circumstances after a 1-0 win over Colorado Rapids. Jared Watts’ horrendous back pass led to an own goal in the 27th minute, but Colorado Rapids had numerous chances in the 90 minutes to equalise and even win the game. Kevin Doyle and Dominique Badji hit the woodwork, as DC United came away with miraculous three points. Atlanta United have not been involved in the matches since the 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City towards the start of August. Back then, Benny Feilhaber’s penalty was cancelled out by a late goal from Jacob Peterson. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

DC United have been extremely poor in recent matches and the win over Colorado Rapids was one of the freak results for the club. Atlanta United travel to the RFK stadium with two wins and a draw in the last three away games. Martino has been able to transform the club’s home form into the away matches. United have lost two out of the last three home games. I would back a win for Atlanta United. The last three games for both clubs have been low scoring with under 2.5 goals. Atlanta will be aware that a key attribute against DC United is patience. I would back this game to produce less than 2.5 goals.

Atlanta United win – 13/8

Total goals under 2.5 – 6/5

DC United are undefeated in all of their last 3 games against Atlanta United

Atlanta United saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

DC United Preview

Manager Ben Olsen might have witnessed DC United use all of their luck in one game in order to secure the win over Colorado Rapids. The game witnessed a one-sided affair in which Colorado Rapids clearly had the better of opportunities and were unlucky to lose. United, though, will not worry about the result as long as it keeps the club in touch with the rest of the table. Even after the win, United remain bottom of the Eastern Conference after just 22 points from the 25 league matches. DC United have the worst scoring record in the division with just 20 goals. Luciano Acosta is the top scorer for the club with just four league goals.

DC United Team News

Rob Vincent (meniscus) is now only injury concern for DC United.

Atlanta United Preview

Atlanta United have been able to go unbeaten in the last five matches, although Martino will not be happy with back-to-back draws. The biggest strength of the club is in the home games, as the club have managed six wins from the nine games. Atlanta will be on the road for the next two league matches, and they do not play at home until September 10 when Mercedes Benz Superdome greets the Atlanta players for a first time. The club have been one of the entertaining teams in the division with 42 goals scored in the 22 league matches. Hector Villalba has now become the Atlanta top scorer with 10 league goals.Atlanta United have been able to go unbeaten in the last five matches, although Martino will not be happy with back-to-back draws.
