The Five Stripes are unbeaten at home this season

Currently, Atlanta United holds sixth place in the MLS league table this season with 11 points. In their last three matches, the Five Stripes have won one match and drawn two games. However, they are without a number of key players at the moment, which is a major concern for them. In the last two matches, they have drawn with New York City FC and Philadelphia. 

It has been two losses in a row that have led FC Cincinnati to drop to fifth place in the MLS league table. For the team to be truly title contenders, goals have been a major issue as they haven’t scored more than two goals this season. In order to rise to the top, they need to start dominating games first. A win here will boost their chances. 

Kick-Off:

Sun, 21 April at 5:00AM IST

Location- Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Form:

Atlanta United (in all competitions): D-D-W-L-W

FC Cincinnati (in all competitions): L-L-D-W-W

Player to Watch

Thiago Almada (Atlanta United) 

The Argentinian talent has been making waves in the last two seasons with his performance. Through his vision and ability to make defence-splitting passes, he creates opportunities for the team to score goals on the other end. In spite of scoring only one goal and providing one assist this season, he has helped the team remain unbeaten at home as a whole. 

Luciano Acosta (FC Cincinnati) 

Acosta has carried on with the form he left last season, scoring two goals and assisting four others. His outstanding qualities help the team maintain a balance between attack and defence, as he is the main threat to the team. As well as scoring spectacular goals, he contributes an all-round gameplay to the team.
