The hosts, Atlanta United, have played an mediocre season so far. 6 wins, 9 draws and 6 losses in 21 games, ranking second in draws. The defence is holding up well, but the team often can’t win against strong teams like England, Columbus and Nashville.
Martinez, the leading scorer in this game, is not in the squad because of the national team. The team’s customary 352, or 451 formation will be affected. This team is one of the more possession-oriented teams in the USL, and has dominated possession against Orlando in recent seasons.
Orlando City have a lot of offensive firepower compared to the home team Atlanta. Under the leadership of manager Oscar, the team has performed well in the past few seasons and the overall team form is good.
However, one of the reasons why Orlando City has never reached the level of a strong team is that the team’s ability on the road is so much worse than at home. The team has 10 wins, 8 draws and 4 losses in 22 games played so far.The visitors are not as motivated as the home team, but they will be playing defensively and steadily. After all, the team won’t be taking things lightly until they lock up their playoff tickets.
Atlanta United are facing big problems nowadays, with the national team taking away 4 of their players, and with injury problems, half of the starting lineup is affected.
Orlando City are in less trouble, with the suspension of star back Urso (3 goals and 5 yellows in 20 games) having the biggest impact, while the goalkeeper’s injury is not so serious.
I’m backing the visitors to go unbeaten in the East Division clash, with too many of the home team’s starters missing.
