Vancouver Whitecaps vs Atlanta United Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Vancouver Whitecaps come into the match after their two-game winning streak ended with a 1-0 loss against DC United. It was a quite spectacular match, as Vancouver missed several chances and even hit the woodwork three times. They conceded at the other end through a controversial penalty from Lamar Neagle in the 61st minute. Vancouver went on to miss their penalty in the closing stages of the game. Atlanta United won back-to-back games after a 3-1 win over New York City. Hugo Almiron was once again at his brilliant best after scoring either side of the goal from Hector Villalba. Jack Harrison scored a consolation for New York City in the second half.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Atlanta United's only victory on the road was against a struggling Real Salt Lake. While the recent run of form does give them a lot of confidence, they are up against a Vancouver Whitecaps team that has managed wins over Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy at home in recent weeks. The loss against DC United in the last home game was more of a freak result than an example. Vancouver clearly place a lot of faith on the home games, as their performances have improved tremendously in the last five games at the BC Place Stadium. I would back a Vancouver Whitecaps win.

Atlanta United have scored in the last five away games, while they have also found the net in the last six matches. Vancouver may average just over a goal per game, but they have been in decent scoring form of late. I would back both teams to score.

Vancouver Whitecaps win – 10/11

Both teams to score – 4/9

Vancouver Whitecaps saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps will be hoping to recover from back-to-back defeats, as even a medium strength team was unable to beat Montréal Impact in the Canadian championship game. Vancouver Whitecaps have now lost three out of the last five games in all competitions. In terms of the MLS games alone, the club managed three consecutive wins before the surprise loss against DC United. Yet, Vancouver were immensely unlucky against DC United and could have easily won the game with a bit of luck. Vancouver's top scorer is Fredy Montero with four league goals.

 

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

David Edgar (knee), Brett Levis (cruciate ligament), Christian Dean (foot), Yordy Reyna (foot), Erik Hurtado (foot), and Bernie Ibini-Isei (muscle) are the players unavailable for Vancouver Whitecaps.

Atlanta United Preview

Atlanta United are once again back amongst wins after a disappointing run of form that saw them go three matches without a win. Manager Gerardo Martino will want more of the wins in order to relive the excellent start to the season. Since April, Atlanta United had managed just one win before these back-to-back victories. The club’s away from continues to be mediocre with just one win in the last five on the travels. Hugo Almiron is the top scorer with seven league goals.
