Our prediction for this MLS match:
Orlando City will be aiming to bounce back from an embarrassing 5-0 loss at New York City when they take on Atlanta United at their Exploria Stadium. The Lions produce much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team recording three wins in the previous four home fixtures. Experienced attacker Pato remains in the recovery room, while Daryl Dike is on international duty with United States of America.
The Five Stripes, on the other hand, head into the match with a severely-weakened squad as all Adams, Barco, Bello, Guzan, Hyndman, Ibarra, and Robinson are out of contention. Considering that Orlando are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. In their last meeting at Exploria Stadium Orlando City rolled over Atlanta United 4-1.
