Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts have won nearly 60% of their home games this season.
  • Atlanta has struggled on the road, winning just 24% of their away matches this campaign.
  • The hosts keep things tight on home soil, as evident by the fact over half of their home games have seen fewer than three goals.

Deila under the microscope

New York City FC has now qualified for the MLS Cup Playoffs for the sixth consecutive year but it wasn’t as easy this time around. They can thank their home form as when playing on home soil this season, they won an impressive 60% of their matches. There is a lot of pressure on manager Ronny Deila to deliver given that his side has been somewhat inconsistent this year, combined with the fact that notoriously, the blues have failed to deliver in the games that truly matter. Only once in their history have they emerged victorious in their opening playoff game and they’ll be hoping they can repeat that here.

Atlanta United missed out on the playoffs last year but now they return and they’ll hope to make a strong start at The Yankee Stadium. For a long time, it seemed as though Atlanta United’s season would be one of disappointment as life under the previous boss Gabriel Heinze was reportedly anything but plain sailing. Gonzalo Pineda has since come in and completely changed the dynamic of the club, both on and off the pitch. With his arrival, they lost just three of their final 16 regular-season games and ultimately qualified for the MLS Cup playoffs.

Awayday blues to strike again

Whilst Atlanta has discovered some form, their away form is still questionable and this is a huge occasion. New York City has grown accustomed to these types of games and we think that experience will give them the edge here. We’re going with New York City FC to win a tight game by a single goal.
