Although they are now behind the Columbus Crew and Charlotte FC, both of whom have 26 points, as well as New England, who has 25, winning (and doing so against a direct opponent for qualification) would help them go closer, thus the Atlanta team will have to try for it. 

When Atlanta United hosts Orlando City at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday, one of the most contentious rivalries in all of Major League Soccer will see its most recent iteration. 

The Lions will look to keep up their impressive record against their rivals under manager Oscar Pareja, while the Five Stripes will attempt to win consecutive games for the first time this season.

Atlanta United FC Vs Orlando City SC Betting odds 

Orlando City SC enters this matchup higher than the other teams. Star striker Josef Martnez spoke out strongly against the team’s recent lackluster performances following the 3-0 defeat to Austin FC, which inspired a strong midweek performance. 

After winning easily in their most recent encounter at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Five Stripes should be confident. Atlanta had a 56 percent possession rate and outshot the opposition 18-8. (5-2). 

Only two of its eight losses and just two of its six victories have occurred away from home. While Orlando will be attempting to recuperate from the altitude of Denver and a lengthy journey, Atlanta has been at home relishing their victory. 

In 11 of Atlanta’s last 12 games, the team has scored at least one goal.

In three of the previous four matches between Atlanta United and Orlando City, more than 2.5 goals were scored. 

We believe there is a good likelihood that will also happen when they play each other next. Atlanta United’s previous five games have all ended with more than 2.5 goals scored. 

On September 11, 2021, they last squared off for Matchday 6 of that MLS season. At that time, goals from George Campbell, Daryl Dike, and Ezequiel Barco helped Atlanta United to a 3-0 victory. This United team has begun to suffer from injuries, but this team should strive for postseason play each season.

However, the 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake was only the team’s second victory in the previous nine MLS games, which sparked speculation over whether manager Gonzalo Pineda would be fired.

Orlando City may not be a showy squad, but it consistently achieves success in both the league and the US Open Cup.

The fact that the Lions have advanced to the semifinal round, which will be played on July 27, hasn’t affected their league performance thus far. 

After defeating Inter Miami 1-0 the previous Saturday, the Lions enter this match off a rather pleasing draw in a challenging setting. It has the attackers to take advantage of Atlanta’s unsteady back line and will be eager to keep the momentum going. 

Ercan Kara, an Austrian striker with seven goals, should have space to work with given that United has given up at least two goals in nine of its last 12 games. 

In the victory in Denver, Facundo Torres, who is 22 years old, scored his fourth goal of the year and added four assists. Star striker Josef Martinez lashed out at both his players and the front office in a rant to the media following a 3-0 loss to Austin last weekend, the worst home loss in organization history. 

They appeared considerably better in their 2-1 victory over Salt Lake on Wednesday, so it may have also been effective.

They only lost two of their most recent five games, compared to Atlanta United’s four losses or draws in their most recent five games.

They appeared considerably better in their 2-1 victory over Salt Lake on Wednesday, so it may have also been effective. It has also played a significant role in their uneven season, which has seen them win only three times in their last 14 games. 

Juan Jose Purata, a new defender who was recently loaned in from Tigres, should aid after making his debut against Real Salt Lake on Wednesday. Mercedes-Benz Stadium will host the game (Atlanta, Georgia).
