Our football match prediction:
Atlanta United will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in MLS to nine games when they host fellow newcomers Minnesota United at their Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Five Stripes will be without first-choice goalkeeper Brad Guzan who is on international duty, but they are still regarded as favourites to win Wednesday’s football match. Tata Martino’s men have been scoring goals for fun in MLS this season, but they head into the game against Minnesota following a goalless draw with New England. The Loons, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat to Houston Dynamo and it has to be noted that they suffered seven losses in previous nine away games. Minnesota United obviously struggle on the travels and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Wednesday’s clash against Atlanta United, who are eyeing a place in the play-offs.
Highligted Player (Carlos Carmona):
Carlos Carmona is a professional footballer who plays for Atalanta as a midfielder. Carmona played for Coquimbo Unido from 2004 to 2007 and then he moved to O’Higgins. However, it has to be noted that he made no more than 17 appearances for the club during his one-season spell. In the summer of 2008 the Chilean footballer moved to Reggina and he made his Serie A debut on 14 September against Torino. Carmona made 32 league appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 Serie A campaign and he remained at Stadio Oreste Granillo for one more season. In 2010 Carlos Carmona signed a deal with Atalanta and he has been playing for Orobici ever since. The Atalanta midfielder has 20 caps for Chile U20 and he made his debut for the senior team against Spain on 19 November, 2008. Carlos Carmona was named in Chile 2015 Copa America squad, but he was eventually forced to withdraw with injury.
Highlighted Team (Minnesota United):
Based in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, Minnesota United are a professional soccer club that will compete in the Western Conference in the Major League Soccer from 2017. The Loons will make their MLS debut against Portland Timbers on March 4, 2017 and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the forthcoming season. Minnesota United are the sixth team to join MLS from a lower division and they will welcome their rivals at TCF Bank Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 52.525 and it was opened in September, 2009. Bill McGuire is the club’s owner and he is on a quest to turn Minnesota United into a top-table side in the Western Conference. Adrian Heath will be in charge of the club in the 2017 season and it has to be noted that the English tactician used to train the likes of Manchester City, Everton, Aston Villa and Espanyol in the past. You should know that the club was founded on March 25, 2015.
