Atlanta United is without a win over New England Revolution since 2019, but bookies think the boys from Georgia are going to triumph on Wednesday. This is the most valuable team in the MLS, with the roster value estimated to be roughly €65 million.
Argentina playmaker Thiago Almada is Atlanta’s most valuable player, followed by Luiz Araujo and Georgios Giakoumakis. All of them have been in fantastic form this season attacking-wise, helping the team get to 29 goals this season – more than any other team in the Eastern Conference.
However, their teammates from the defensive department haven’t been as great. With 25 goals conceded, Atlanta’s one of the worst defensive teams in the MLS. In comparison, New England has allowed 17 so far.
Atlanta United vs New England Revolution Prediction
We saw over 2.5 goals in three of the last four duels between Atlanta United and New England Revolution. It’s very likely we’ll see three or more goals in Wednesday’s game as well, with the home team being the one to score more.
