The two United’s have just three points separating them in the east, and a win for Atlanta this weekend will see them level on points with their rivals. Here, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about this weekend’s fixture, as well as our latest tips & predictions.
As things stand, DC United are sixth in the Eastern Conference, and are heading into the final third of the season in a fairly strong position. In their midweek game, against Eastern leaders New England Revolution, DC fought hard and gave one of the best teams in the league a run for their money. In a narrow 3-2 defeat, away from home, DC can definitely head into the weekend with some confidence from their last result. DC have a great opportunity on Saturday, where they host an Atlanta side struggling to gain any momentum in the league so far this season.
Atlanta United have had a very average season so far, and certainly need a big push in their final games to make a feature in this season’s playoffs. With that said, the away side are going into the weekend’s encounter unbeaten in four games, with a three-game winning streak. This also includes an impressive 3-2 victory against 2020 MLS Cup champions Columbus Crew. Atlanta will definitely be looking to use the confidence and performances in recent times to perform at the same standard on the road to DC United.
Looking at the last five head to head results between the two teams, it’s fair to say that these are two evenly matched sides. Whilst there have been no results ending in a draw in their previous five encounters, there have been three wins for DC, and two for Atlanta. There’s also a trend of at least two goals in each game these two play against each other, and we’re expecting more of the same on Saturday. DC United have the advantage in terms of the results, and there’s no doubt that they will look to maintain this competitive edge over their opponents.
