Philadelphia Union at Atlanta United 6/2/18 - MLS Picks & Predictions

Two teams in exactly opposite forms are now clashing against one another on Saturday, when Atlanta United will play host to Philadelphia. Atlanta United have won just one of their last four, while Philadelphia have been undefeated in just as many.

Atlanta United (8-3-2) feel like they should have earned all three points from their trip to New England on Wednesday, but they were stuck at a 1-1 draw. They have now won just one of their last four (1-2-1), having kept a single clean sheet in their last eight. Even so, they are still sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference with 26 points, just one point ahead of Columbus and two ahead of NYCFC. Atlanta United have been really strong at home overall (4-2-1) but have lost each of their last two there. Philadelphia (5-5-3) are enjoying a very good period of form lately, as they have been undefeated in their last four matches (3-0-1). They are coming off a nice and strong performance at home against Chicago, where they had no problems in overcoming their opponents by 1-3. They are now sitting at the 7th spot of the Eastern Conference with 18 points, just one point outside the playoff spots. However, they have been really struggling to get results on the road (1-4-1), where they have scored just two goals, against 9 conceded.

Atlanta United are really looking to return to winning ways, and even more so after having lost each of the last two home matches. I expect them to be extra competitive on this one, and this is probably where Philadelphia’s undefeated streak might come to an end.
