Market: Both teams to score
Chances: 2/3 @1xBet
In what could turn out to be another MLS bout, Atlanta will face New England at Mercedes-Benz Stadium early Thursday morning.
Let’s start with the hosts, while Atlanta were last seen at the weekend breaking a late 1-1 tie away at Orlando, that doesn’t cover what has been an extended blip for Gonzalo Pineda’s team. Despite a resounding 4-0 win when they greeted Colorado at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on May 17, it’s the only win Atlanta have scored in their last seven home games in all competitions. With this streak kicked off with a 2-1 win over Chicago on April 23, the Five Stripes have a sense that the team is looking for some recent momentum. Having started May with a tense 3-1 home loss to Charlotte, the hosts have also built a reputation for defensive play in the middle of the week. In fact, apart from that 4-0 romp against Colorado earlier this month, Atlanta have not managed to keep a clean sheet in any of their other nine home games.
As for the away side, while New England may also have been seen announcing their own stalemate action over the weekend, the Revs found themselves in the same position as their Eastern Conference rivals. In the end, after playing a remarkable 3-3 draw at home to Chicago, Bruce Arena’s team has only one point in any of their last four domestic showdowns. Similarly, along with landing three strikes in his MLS appearances in a row, the former LA Galaxy boss has seen his side record only a single clean sheet since early April. In a competition that is known to give a lot of chances, neutral players can get another nice treat here. It should be noted that in three of the last four MLS meetings between rivals on Thursday, both teams scored goals, and we expect a similar result at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the middle of the week.
Bet: Both teams to score in the 2/3 Atlanta United vs. New England Revolution in the MLS game on Thursday. @ 1xStake
