Monday at MAPFRE Stadium, as Columbus host Atlanta in the MLS.

This clash sees fifth placed Columbus, welcome thirteenth placed Atlanta to MAPFRE Stadium.

Columbus Crew go into this game with 34 points secured

When Columbus last turned out in the MLS, the result was a disappointing draw 1-1 against Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. They will be hoping for a better result this time.

Also, Columbus are quickly becoming the MLS’s draw specialists, having recorded six in their last 11 games. With 34 points, they currently sit fifth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

Playing at home, Columbus have won five matches, drawn three fixtures, and lost four games.

A win in this fixture, would take Columbus Crew’s points from 34 to 37, so far this season.

It’s 29 points so far for Atlanta United this season, going into this meeting

Time will tell, whether Atlanta’s recent run of poor form is about to change. However Gonzalo Pineda will be keen to turn his season around with this game, following the recent defeat to Red Bulls, which followed a disappointing 2-2 draw against Cincinnati.

Also, a draw statistic of three in six meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Gonzalo Pineda’s men wishes for ultimately. They currently stand thirteenth in the League, with 29 points for a total of 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to one victory, four draws, and seven defeats, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Atlanta as they travel once more.

Atlanta United will see 32 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
