The Five Stripes will have to do it without their top scorer.

In the league, Atlanta United are currently in the 12th position in MLS after failing to win three consecutive matches. They have lost two matches and drawn two in the last three, which has left them 19 points behind Inter Miami, the league leaders.

Since they are missing several players, this will be another difficult match for them. As well as facing the threat of losing their top scorer Giakoumakis to Mexican side Cruz Azul, Gonzalo Pineda will face a loss. 

LAFC are fifth in the Western Conference with 21 points. They are currently seven points behind league leaders Salt Lake. The last couple of matches have been positive for the team as they have won four straight matches. Last time, Steven Cherundolo’s team defeated St. Louis City by 0-2 with Denis Bounga scoring a brace. LAFC also advanced to the quarter-finals of the US Open Cup by beating Loudoun United FC.

Player to Watch

Brooks Lennon (Atlanta United) 

The right-back has become an important cog of the team from the right part of the defense. He has formed an incredible partnership with his fellow defenders to keep the defense intact. As well he does the defending for the team, he is equally impressive going forward.

He has registered three assists for the team from the right flank. This match will be crucial for him as the team is missing several key players. He will have to provide the attacking threat for the team. 

Denis Bounga (LAFC) 

Denis Bounga wears the number 99 for the team and is one of the most crucial players on the team. He spearheads the attack for the team with his directness and speed. The Gabon International has registered eight goals this MLS season and has five assists overall.

He has continued his fine goalscoring form from last season where he was one of the top performers in the league. In the last three matches, he has scored two goals and assisted another five.
