Why you should back Atlanta
United has put the third-most shots on target among all Major League Soccer teams this season, with 53. Atlanta also has taken the fifth-most shots overall, with 146, led by attacking midfielder Thiago Almada, who has taken 20 shots through his eight total appearances this season. Moreover, Brooks Lennon and Marcelino Moreno are among the league-leaders in shot-creating actions this season. Lennon has orchestrated 36, while Moreno set up 34.
New England has conceded 17 goals this season, which is tied with Vancouver for the fifth-most goals allowed. Matt Turner hasn’t minded the goal for most of the early part of the season due to his national team call-ups, but had a rough start in his last appearance against Columbus last weekend. Turner allowed two goals on three shots against the Crew, and it’s clear that New England has had some issues along its defensive back line.
Why you should back New England
Atlanta got devastating news this week when center back Miles Robinson tore an achilles tendon, eliminating him from the rest of the Major League Soccer season and likely ending his bid to play for the national team in the World Cup as well. That could prove extremely problematic considering the form that Carles Gil is in heading into the weekend. Gil has been one of the players facilitating Buska’s scoring run with three assists in his last three games.
Gil is second in all of Major League Soccer in shot-creating actions, with 61, but the Revs have also received offensive support from defender Brandon Bye, who is second on the team in SCA, with 29. Buska is the top offensive player in the list of aerial battles won among all MLS players, with 40, and while Atlanta has won 52.3 percent of their aerial challenges, they have only had to contend with 123 of them.
