Our prediction for this MLS match:
Atlanta United play host to Montreal at their Mercedes-Benz Stadium in what is expected to be a lively contest. The Five Stripes have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, but their display in a 1-1 draw with Inter Miami is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. All Alec Kann, Ezequiel Barco, and Jurgen Damm are sidelined through injuries, while Mohammed Adams is a major doubt.
The Canadians, on the other hand, sit in top position in the Eastern Conference ahead of the trip to Georgia. All Mason Toye, Luis Binks, Ballou Tabla, and Zachary Brault-Guillard are sidelined with injuries, while Djordje Mihajlovic will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as Montreal looked sharp in front of goal in a 2-0 win over Inter Miami.
Highlighted Player (Josef Martinez):
Josef Martinez started his senior career at Caracas, but he made no more than 36 league appearances for the Venezuelan outfit from 2010 to 2012. Martinez then moved to Europe and the 170-cm tall striker scored 4 goals in 34 appearances for the capital club. In the 2013/2014 season he played for fellow Swiss outfit Thun (on loan) and on June 7, 2014 he signed a contract with Serie A team Torino.
In December, 2017 Josef Martinez scored his first ever goal in the Italian top flight in a 2-2 draw with Palermo. The Venezuela international currently plays (on loan) for Atlanta United in MLS and he made his debut for Gerardo Martino’s team against New York Red Bulls. Speaking of his international career, Martinez made his Venezuela debut against El Salvador, coming from the bench after 76 minutes.
On November 10, 2016 he scored a hat-trick for La Vinotinto in a thrilling 5-0 victory over Bolivia and it has to be noted that he has four caps (two goals) for Venezuela U20 team.
