Philadelphia Union are enjoying an incredible run of success on their top-flight travels, stringing together eight wins on the spin at the highest level of the MLS. Atlanta Utd, have found the going somewhat harder on their own patch of late, suffering four consecutive defeats in which they have conceded 12 goals.
The Friends Arena has not exactly been the venue at which to see goals in the MLS recently, with 13 of the previous 17 Atlanta Utd home matches serving up no more than a couple of successful strikes. Nine of the last 11 Philadelphia Union games at this elite level of the MLS, including six in a row of late, have also fallen into this low-scoring category.
Over the course of their last 17 fixtures in the MLS, Atlanta Utd have been involved in just four encounters in which they have both scored and conceded during the same 90 minutes. Although Philadelphia Union cannot quite match these levels of consistency, at least one of the two keepers has emerged with a clean sheet in 12 of their previous 19 third-tier games.
Atlanta Utd vs Philadelphia Union Prediction
Atlanta Utd have played 16 home games during the current MLS campaign, with no fewer than 11 of these encounters serving up under 2.5 goals. Not only that, but ten of the last 12 Philadelphia Union away matches at this level have also produced no more than a couple of goals, meaning that more of the same is expected when the sides go head-to-head at the Atlanta Utd Stadium.
