Prediction: Atlanta United vs Los Angeles FC – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Your winless streak is finally over, and now Atlanta United will try to maintain their momentum against a struggling Los Angeles FC on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Georgia.

Last week the Five Stripes beat the Columbus Crew 3-2, while the Black-and-Gold lost their second game in a row, losing 2-1 to the San Jose Earthquakes.


Prediction for this match

It took a long time, but Atlanta ended a winless run of 12 games last weekend, their first away win of the year, and picked up three points for the first time since May 15.

During his work as an interim manager Rob Valentino had preached to his side the importance of attacking early and often, and they were rewarded last Saturday when they took the lead in the fifth minute and showed great resilience in the second half after the crew got on the Scoreboard stood halfway.

Valentino has given his side more freedom of attack than his predecessor and they have reacted strongly lately with seven goals in their last three games.

Gonzalo Pineda is now in charge, with Valentino relegated to assistant as Pineda, a former assistant coach for the Seattle Sounders, will attempt to put that team back into a playoff position, currently six points behind the Columbus crew.

The Five Stripes were much better at home than on the road, despite struggling to find the net, going goalless in their last three games at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium despite firing 13 shots on goal.

LA are still in a playoff position but they have been doing each other no favors lately and have remained without a win in their last five games.

Bob Bradley must be frustrated with the lack of consistency his team has shown throughout the year, especially given the level of talent on paper.

All season they have been average at best, with some highlights, but right now they look like a broken team, extremely discouraged with the way the year went.

They’re scoring about as many goals as they’ve conceded, conceding 24 and conceding 25, but the LA defense have been particularly vulnerable on the road lately, conceding four goals in their last two games.

A team that led the league in goals scored in the past two seasons did not make the most of their chances in 2021, taking 56 shots in their last three games but only scoring four goals.

Atlanta is still missing Franco Ibarra, Jake Mulraney and Brooks Lennon with lower body injuries while Mo Adams is still recovering from a quad injury and Emerson Hyndman has a cracked ACL.

Luis Araujo could make his debut in the game after joining the Five Stripes as Designated Player from Lille, the reigning Ligue 1 champions, and Josef Martinez missed his last game with a red card suspension.

Cristian Arango made his first appearance for LA since signing Millonarios FC in Colombia in early August and started instead of Diego Rossi last Saturday.

Jesus Murillo replaced Marco Farfan in central defense against the Quakes when Bradley walked and moved with a back four Kim Moon-hwan to midfield, with Francisco Ginella start instead Raheem Edwards.

Atlanta United possible starting line-up:
Guzan; Walks, Franco, Campbell, Robinson; Bello, Sosa, Sejdic, Hernandez; Barco, Moreno

Los Angeles FC possible starting line-up:
Romero; Palacios, Blackmon, Murillo, Farfan; Crisostomo, Atuesta, Cifuentes; Rossi, Arango, Vela

Probability: Atlanta United 2-1 Los Angeles FC

Atlanta has been playing on their skills a lot more lately and beating the reigning MLS Cup champions could be just what it takes to regain some of their confidence.

On the flip side, LA’s confidence has to be shaken with their form lately and they seem to have problems playing against teams at the bottom of the table while also losing back-to-back away games.
