New York RB’s latest fixture against Los Angeles FC ended in an away 2-0 loss. I expected more from RBNY. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Atlanta United FC’s previous game in the competition versus Toronto ended in an away 2-1 loss. Atlanta United FC didn’t turn up and failed to create clear cut chances for most of the game. Atlanta United FC was not convincing in the first-half and scored in the 57th minute.
So far, Metro plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.78 points per away game on average compared to 1.25 points at home. Although New York RB is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 25% home clean sheets.
Atlanta United FC has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Atlanta United FC wins 0.57 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Atlanta United FC kept a clean sheet in just 14% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won two consecutive matches. RBNY is currently unbeaten at home in five games. Since the start of the season, they have just two home defeats.
Atlanta United FC failed to win in five consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Friday and win against RBNY.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. New York RB wins on average 1.25 points per home game, compared to 0.57 points per away game for Atlanta United FC. My prediction is New York RB to win.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. New York RB has scored in 75% of home games. Atlanta United FC is a decent match and has failed to score in just twenty-nine away games. On average, both teams score in 60% of New York RB’s home and Atlanta United FC’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
