Reason For Atlanta United vs FC Cincinnati Predictions

  • Four of Atlanta’s six competitive games in 2020 have produced three or more goals.
  • All of Cincinatti’s three matches this year have seen over 2.5 goals land.
  • Two of Atlanta’s last four games, including one against Cincinatti, have ended in 2-1 victories.

Atlanta United may have come into the MLS Is Back tournament missing star player Josef Martinez, but with a couple of other important players returning from injuries their chances of lifting the trophy remain relatively high.

That being said, Atlanta did kick off the campaign is a disappointing way as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to New York Red Bulls thanks to a lack of concentration early on, but they’ll be keen to get their first win on the board come Thursday.

They face off against a FC Cincinnati side that also lost their opener, although their 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Columbus Crew was somewhat more convincing. This followed on from their back-to-back defeats in the first two MLS games back in March, and looking back to last season they are now without a win in seven competitive games.

Jaap Stam, who was appointed head coach in May, will be keen for an improvement from his new club. Still, they’re facing a side with the depth and quality to beat the very best the MLS has to offer, so Cincinnati are understandably underdogs here.

What we can predict is some goals. All three of Cincinnati’s matches this season have produced at least three goals and the traditionally high scoring Atlanta United have seen three or more goals scored in four of their six competitive games in 2020, so backing over 2.5 goals looks a good choice.

We are expecting the favourites to take the win as well. Two of their last four games have ended in a 2-1 victory, and with one of those being their victory over Cincinnati in the regular MLS campaign we’re going for a 2-1 Atlanta win as our correct score prediction.
