Atlanta United Preview – Another shattering home defeat for Glass’ boys?

Since taking over from Frank de Boer on an interim basis in July, Stephen Glass has had a tough time at Atlanta United. After beating Nashville at home on August 23rd, the Five Stripes have lost five of their following nine.

Atlanta have shown an improvement in recent games, though, picking up six points from the last nine on offer. Sandwiched in between wins over Dallas and DC United was a 2-0 loss at Chicago Fire.

Our betting prediction:
Orlando win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1710 GMT, Tuesday 6 October)

Glass’ men were superb against DC at Audi Field last time out, putting on their best display of the season by far in the romping win in the capital. Jon Gallagher grabbed two goals, while Brooks Lennon and Adam Jahn were also on the scoresheet in the 4-0 victory.

United currently occupy eighth position in the Eastern Conference table, taking 17 points from 15 games so far. Can they move on to 20 with a big three points on home turf in midweek?

Orlando City Preview – In-form Lions to keep the pressure on the leaders?

Oscar Pareja’s Orlando City are one the form teams of MLS at the moment. The club from Florida head to Georgia unbeaten in nine league matches, winning six and drawing three. City’s last reverse came to Inter Miami back in August.

Overall, Orlando have won eight, drawn five and lost only two of their 15 MLS fixtures thus far. They are two points behind joint leaders Columbus Crew and Toronto in the Eastern Conference, while Pareja’s men are also third in the combined table.
