Atlanta at home against Nashville – Saturday – 10:30pm GMT – Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Third placed Nashville will travel to Mercedes-Benz Stadium, hopeful of rampage, as they face eighth placed Atlanta.

Atlanta United’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 27 points, going into this game

Gonzalo Pineda will hope that success brings further success, as his side look for another win in a row. Their last two outings resulted in victories against D.C. United and Toronto FC.

That’s a run of four wins for Atlanta. With eighth, they currently sit 27 points in the League having won six matches, drawn nine fixtures, and lost six games.

When Atlanta host Nashville, they will do so on the back of four wins and three darts on their own ground.

Atlanta United will have secured 30 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

With the Major League Soccer season well into its stride, Nashville SC have managed to gain 32 points

Nashville will be hoping for a win, following a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Orlando City in their last game.

Football is a simple game, first don’t lose, and Nashville achieved this now in 18 of their last 20 games. With 32 points, they are established in third in the League having won seven matches, drawn 11 games, and lost one game.

It must be a worrying prospect for Nashville to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured five draws to the home team.

A win in this fixture would take Nashville SC’s points to 35 in the League.

Atlanta and Nashville have faced each other five times in the past, with the balance of wins sitting in Atlanta’s favour (2 – 1). In addition, home advantage has clearly been a huge positive factor for Atlanta in this fixture, as they have not lost to Nashville on the last two games. In their most recent meeting of this fixture was July 2021 and the score line ended up with a 2-2 draw.
