Mercedes-Benz Stadium sees Thursday action as Atlanta take on Cin – 2:00am GMT.

This clash sees thirteenth play eighth, as struggling Cin visit Mercedes-Benz Stadium to face Atlanta.

Atlanta United arrive at this meeting, having secured 30 points so far this season

With a win in their previous game, (3-0) against Orlando City, Atlanta will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Winning this fixture will see Atlanta United on 33 points.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen Cincinnati achieve 20 points

Cin come to this fixture on the back of a victory, having beaten Toronto FC 2-0 at Nippert Stadium.

Cin’s success this season will ultimately depend on their ability to break the habit of not winning, as they failed to secure a win in 12 of their last 13 meetings. With thirteenth, they currently sit 20 points in the League having won four games, drawn eight matches, and lost 10 fixtures.

Cin now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won three games, drawn three fixtures, and lost six matches matches on the road.

A win in this fixture would take Cincinnati’s points to 23 in the League.
