According to Transfermarkt, Atlanta United is the most valuable team in the MLS. This team’s roster is estimated to be roughly $65 million. That’s some five million more than the reigning MLS champion, Los Angeles FC. It’s also nearly 20 million more than the value of Atlanta’s net opponent, Orlando City.
Atlanta’s most valuable player is Thiago Almada, an Argentina playmaker who’s already scored six goals in the MLS this season. He’s not the leading scorer of Atlanta, though. Instead, it’s Georgios Giakoumakis who scored three goals in the last two games.
Knowing this, it’s no surprise that Atlanta United is the highest-scoring team in the entire MLS with a total of 28 goals in 14 games. Orlando City too is a great offensive team, which has put away 16 goals thus far (in 13 games).
Orlando vs Atlanta Prediction
In the last five Orlando City vs Atlanta United games, we saw a total of 13 goals. We’re certain we’ll see a lot of goals this Saturday as well. In fact, we believe there could be goals galore in Orlando this weekend. But which team will score more? Anything can happen, but we think it’s Atlanta United that has quality on its side.
