Sunday’s clash at Audi Field- sees eighth placed Atlanta, travel to sixth-placed D.C. in the Major League Soccer.

D.C. United arrive at this match, having secured 27 points so far this season

D.C. have dropped all six points in their last two games, a disappointing run of form, which Hernán Losada will be keen to turn around in this fixture.

With 27 points, they are established in sixth in the League having won eight meetings, drawn three games, and lost nine matches.

Atlanta travel to D.C., knowing that they have nothing to lose. The odds are not in their favour, as the home team has recorded six wins in the eight home games they’ve played so far this season.

A victory for D.C. United would put them on 30 points.

Atlanta United’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 24 points, going into this game

Can Atlanta make it three out of three, having turned over Toronto FC 1-0 and Los Angeles FC 1-0 in their last two games?

Can Atlanta extend their incredible run of three wins? With eighth, they currently sit 24 points in the League having won five matches, drawn nine games, and lost six fixtures.

Atlanta’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to D.C. In the 11 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won one game, drawn six fixtures, and lost four matches.

A win in this fixture would take Atlanta United’s points to 27 in the League.
