Our prediction for this MLS match:
Sunday’s football game at Toyota Stadium pits together Dallas and Atlanta United, the two teams who were beaten by St Louis City and Cincinnati respectively in their last league matches. The Toros are eager to stay in the playoffs berth and you should know that they are eyeing their eighth home win of the process. Goalkeeper Maarten Paes is banned for the match, while midfielder Tarik Scott has yet to overcome an ACL injury.
The Five Stripes, on the other hand, want to stay in top seven in the Eastern Conference, but beating Dallas on the road is easier said than accomplished. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils at Toyota Stadium. As for the away team, Osvaldo Alonso remains in the recovery room, while Jamal Thiare is out of contention due to personal reasons.
Highlighted Team (Atlanta United):
Atlanta United is a Major League Soccer club and they were founded on April 16, 2014. They are based in Atlanta, Georgia and they will make their debut in MLS in 2017. Arthur Blank is the club’s owner and Bobby Dodd Stadium is Atlanta United’s home ground.
Arthur Blank is an American businessman, who is well known for his ownership of the NFL club Atlanta Falcons. The venue was opened on September 27, 1913 and its’ current capacity is 60.316. However, it has to be noted that the team will play first eight home games of the 2017 season at Bobby Dodd Stadium, while the latter nine fixtures will be hosted by Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Speaking of the club’s colors, Atlanta United footballers wear black and red shirts and black shorts with a little bit of gold mixed in. Gerardo Martino, who used to be in charge of La Liga side Barcelona in the past, will coach Atlanta United in the 2017 MLS season. Tata Martino won the Spanish Super Cup with Barca, while making it to the Copa America final with Argentina on two occasions (2015, 2016).
