Football Prediction of the Day DC United vs. Atlanta United
Trying to recover after two setbacks, DC United will host Atlanta United team that has not lost 7 games, so will have difficulties to leave victorious even playing at home. The trend is for a very hectic game with lots of dangerous throws and goals.
DC UNITED: After five unbeaten games, winning 3 of them at home, DC United ended up defeated in the last two rounds and lost the chance to keep climbing the table.
The team’s performance has improved a lot since he was sunk in his group’s lantern for a long time, but with the arrival of some heavyweight reinforcements like striker Rooney, victories began to arrive.
However, the defensive system still suffers a lot to contain the opponents attacks, being difficult a game without taking goal and against the present vice leader of the group, that comes packaged, the tendency is to take 1 or more goals again.
ATLANTA UNITED: The visitors are having a great time in the competition, they do not know what defeat has been since July 4, when they were defeated away from home by FC Dallas.
After that, they were 5 wins and 2 draws, leaving the team to 1 point of the leader NY Red Bulls, who already played and lost in the round. And the absurd goal average of the team is given especially to a player:
Josef Martínez, who scored 28 goals in 26 matches played, practically 1 goal per game. Against DC United’s fragile defense the chance of him to score even a hat-trick is real.

DC United have had their winning streak broken and will have difficulty playing equally against the group’s current runner-up, where their hopes will be on English star Rooney.
On the other hand, Atlanta United are confident for the match in search of the lead and will have their striker Martinez to achieve this feat, and can exploit against attacks and stunned balls, since the opponent’s defense is not stable.
Given that, I believe that Atlanta United will have chances to score more than 1 goal, due to the good moment and the opponent that will face.
