Atlanta United FC
Following their recent 4-3 loss to LAFC, Atlanta United FC enter this weekend’s action sporting an 11-3-9 record. This nets them a total of 36-points on the year, which places them just 3-points shy of tying with the Eastern Conference leading Philadelphia Union. With this in mind, it’s clear that Atlanta could usurp Philly for the No. 1 spot in the coming days. With a +9 goal differential on the season, the 6th best defense in the league and the 5th best offense, there’s no questioning Atlanta’s prowess. However, will it be enough to take care of the LA Galaxy. After all, the Galaxy have the self-proclaimed best player in the league in Zlatan. Nevertheless, Atlanta is hoping the home field advantage is enough to deliver a lopsided win over LA. Considering the kind of success the Galaxy have been enjoying lately, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Atlanta come out on top here.
Players to Watch: Josef Martinez (29 GP, 17 G, 6 A), Julian Gressel (23 GP, 4 G, 7 A), and Ezequiel Barco (9 GP, 4 G, and 1 A).
The Galaxy ride into this weekend’s action flashing a 12-1-9 record that ranks them 3rd over in the Western Conference. So far this season, the Galaxy have racked up 37-points on the year, placing them 1-point shy of tying with the second-seeded Seattle Sounders. However, LA Galaxy is 12-points behind the conference leading LAFC. With this in mind, it’s clear that the Galaxy are having a hard time measuring up against their intra-city rival. And since they’re facing one of the tougher opponents the East has to offer, it doesn’t look like LA will be bridging that gap anytime soon.
Players to Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (18 GP, 16 G, 3 A), Daniel Steres (22 GP, 3 G, 0 A), and Uriel Antuna (19 GP, 2 G, 2 A).
