Thursday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, as Atlanta host NYC in the Major League Soccer.

Thursday’s clash between Atlanta and NYC, sees fifth take on eighth in the League.

Atlanta United’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 42 points, going into this game

Atlanta will take a huge positive from their recent 0-2 win against Toronto FC at BMO Field.

Atlanta keep finding ways to win, having secured nine victories in their last 12 fixtures is astonishing this season. They currently stand fifth in the League, with 42 points having won 11 games, drawn nine meetings, and lost nine matches.

Playing at home, Atlanta have won eight games, drawn three fixtures, and lost three meetings.

A win in this fixture, would take Atlanta United’s points from 42 to 45, so far this season.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen New York achieve 40 points

With one draw, which followed a defeat, NYC’s recent form has not been great. They will be looking to return to winning ways in this next match.

NYC need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded four losses in their last seven games. Their position is eighth in the League, and they have 40 points having won 11 meetings, drawn seven games, and lost 10 fixtures.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to three wins and four darts, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for NYC as they travel once more.

Victory for New York would take their points tally to 43 so far this season.
