Atlanta United (4-1-0) showed newcomers Los Angeles FC who is the boss last week, as they welcomed them to the MLS with a massive 0-5 win at home. Los Angeles FC didn't deserve such a severe loss, but everything was against them. Atlanta United took the lead at the 17th minute but saw their opponents record more scoring chances. However, LAFC failed to get their shots on target, and as they started to get careless towards the end of the match, Atlanta United took advantage and scored not one, not two, but four more goals in the final 30 minutes. That was their fourth consecutive win, having scored 15 goals in that span, against just two conceded. They are now sitting at the 2nd spot of the Eastern Conference with 12 points, with only NYCFC ahead of them by four. Atlanta United will have a handful of injury concerns, as Barco, Escobar, Hernandez, Hildebrandt, and Garza are between questionable and unavailable.
Get more details: On the other hand, New York City FC (5-0-1) is having a solid season, and the weird thing is that they are still without star forward David Villa. There have been a few players who have already stood out like Moralez and Tajouri, who have found the absence of Villa to be quite beneficial. In any case, NYCFC is playing some excellent soccer right now, and the fact that they have yet to lose after six matches is far from random. In their last game, they demolished Real Salt Lake at home by 0-4, taking advantage of the numerous absences their opponents had. NYCFC had already taken a three-goal lead by the end of the first half and were great once again. They are of course sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference with 16 points, and they are the only team that has yet to lose. They are currently listing a few players on their injury report, like Villa, Ring, and Awuah.
New York FC at Atlanta United Prediction 04/15/2018
The two teams first met last season, where they exchanged 1-3 wins at home in the two matches they played. Both sides like to play offensive soccer, and Atlanta is merely dominant at home. However, NYCFC has been good overall, and this will surely be an exciting match to watch. Judging by how the two have played against each other last season, and by what they have done so far in 2018, I will gladly take the Over 3 Goals.
