This Thursday sees Atlanta go head to head with Red Bulls at Mercedes-Benz Stadium – Kick-off 2:30am GMT.

When Red Bulls visit Mercedes-Benz Stadium they will be sat in fourth place in the League. Atlanta, currently 11 will face an up-hill battle to handle the visitors.

Atlanta United have 29 points to their name, going into this tie

With Gonzalo Pineda’s men stubbornly held to a 2-2 draw in their last match, he will hope to find the key to unlock the defence in this fixture.

Also, with three draws in five matches, Atlanta need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. Now they have 0 matches won, 0 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in eleventh place, with a total of 29 points.

When Atlanta host Red Bulls, they will do so on the back of six victories, four draws, and two losses on their own ground.

Atlanta United will have 32 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Red Bulls’ campaign so far has seen them accrue 37 points this season

Time will tell, whether Red Bulls’s recent run of poor form is about to change. However Gerhard Struber will be keen to turn his season around with this game, following the recent defeat to Orlando City, which followed a disappointing 0-0 draw against D.C. United.

Also, Red Bulls have now lost three of their last five matches, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Gerhard Struber. With 37 points (0W, 0L and 0D), they are established in fourth position in the League.

Red Bulls’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Atlanta. In the 13 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won seven meetings, drawn three matches, and lost three matches.

Winning this fixture will see Red Bulls on 40 points.
