Atlanta Utd vs. Toronto FC – Prediction (MLS Play Offs – Semi-finals – 31.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Two postseason regulars go head-to-head as reigning champions Atlanta United pursue a sixth straight play-offs victory at home, having never lost an MLS Cup playoffs match at home inside 90 minutes in their short history (W5, D1). Josef Martínez (ATL) has scored in four of six play-off games at home. Atlanta’s incredible dominance continued throughout the back end of 2019, with ‘The Five Stripes’ opening the scoring in 17 of their last 19 MLS home fixtures, going on to lose just one when doing so (W14, D2). Furthermore, when their defence is solid, victory is almost guaranteed: 16 of their previous 20 MLS victories were accompanied by a clean sheet.

Referee Alan Kelly has awarded just one red card and 3.10 yellow cards per game in 19 MLS 2019 assignments. Toronto have never won in Atlanta (D2, L1). Five of the six H2Hs have produced over 3.5 goals, with both teams scoring in all five. Just five of ten 2019 MLS Cup play-off games have seen the home team win inside 90 minutes.

However, they face one of the more determined and tenacious MLS teams in Toronto, who have extended a 12-game unbeaten run (W5, D7) by becoming just the second team during 2019 to win away to New York City (albeit at a different venue). Alejandro Pozuelo (TOR) has peaked at the perfect time, finding the back of the net in four of his last seven MLS starts. Whilst that was just their fifth away win of the MLS season inside 90 minutes, they enjoy a 60% win/draw rate as an away outsider (W3, D6, L6) in regular season and play-off football. Additionally, they possess an overall play-offs record of W8, D3, L2 since the beginning of 2016 which sees them one hurdle away from their third MLS Cup appearance in four years.
