Columbus Crew Preview – Can Crew continue fine run of form?

Columbus Crew have been tough to beat all season, losing just six MLS matches. Only Philadelphia Union, Los Angeles and Austin have suffered fewer defeats this term. They have won eight and drawn ten of the other 18.

Crew head into this weekend’s match having lost only one of their previous 12 MLS fixtures (five wins, six draws). Since a 2-1 home reverse to Montreal earlier this month, the Ohio outfit have taken four points from a possible six, beating New York City and drawing with Colorado Rapids.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 2208 GMT, Friday 19 August)

As we enter the business end of the season in America, Columbus are at the right end of the table, sitting nicely in fifth in the Eastern Conference with 34 points to their name. Can they chalk up another precious victory here?

Atlanta United Preview – Five Stripes’ winless run to go on?

Atlanta United languish down in 13th spot in the Eastern Conference table, with just Wayne Rooney’s DC United below. However, with the league so tight, the Five Stripes are just four points adrift of seventh spot.

If Atlanta are to make a late dash for the play-offs, they must start winning games. United have struggled for wins of late, picking up just one win in their last six. Overall, the Georgia club have won seven of 25 MLS fixtures this season.
