Match Info and Score Prediction.
Competition: USA MLS.
Date: 25.09.2019, 7:00 p.m. ET.
Venue: Yankee Stadium.
Referee: Chapman A. (Usa).
Atlanta United’s recent league form underlines expectations of high drama, with no draw in their last 12 MLS fixtures and both teams scoring in half of that dozen. In the last three defeats within that sequence, Atlanta still somehow managed to win one half 1-0. A win for the visitors will, of course, put them within a point of their conference-leading hosts. Their record here is symmetrical, but the ‘Five Stripes’ (ATL) have won the last three H2Hs, winning one half specifically by a 1-0 scoreline each time.
A win for NYCFC will all but seal top spot in the Eastern Conference, and with no defeat in seven home league outings, the odds are firmly in their favour. Curiously, the last three wins in that sequence saw them recover after conceding inside the opening 20 minutes. In most cases, drama is never far away from league games here, with five of the last six MLS fixtures at the Yankee Stadium seeing both teams score. Of the last four in that category, three saw the first two match goals shared equally and produced a red card.
