Competition: MLS

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 2/3 @ 1xBet

In an MLS showdown that could prove to be another enjoyable affair, Atlanta will welcome New England to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the early hours of Thursday.

Starting with the hosts, while Atlanta might have been last seen over the weekend snatching a late 1-1 draw away at Orlando, it doesn’t cover what has been an extended blip for Gonzalo Pineda’s side. Despite claiming what was a thumping 4-0 victory when they welcomed Colorado to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on May 17th, that is the only win that Atlanta have collected from their last seven domestic appearances across all competitions. With that run stemming back to a 2-1 win against Chicago on April 23rd, the Five Stripes have the feel of a squad seeking a recent boost. Opening May with an action-packed 3-1 loss at home against Charlotte, the midweek hosts have also gained a reputation for their defensive struggles. In fact, aside from that 4-0 romp against Colorado earlier in the month, Atlanta have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their other nine domestic showdowns.

As for the visitors, although New England might have also been seen over the weekend claiming their own action-packed stalemate, the Revs find themselves in a similar position to their Eastern Conference rivals. Eventually playing out a remarkable 3-3 draw at home against Chicago, Bruce Arena’s side have collected just a single point from any of their last four domestic showdowns. Likewise, along with shipping a trio of strikes in their back-to-back MLS appearances, the one-time LA Galaxy boss has seen his side record just a sole clean sheet since the start of April. In a contest that famously produces plenty of chances, neutrals could be treated to another enjoyable affair here. It should be noted, with three of the last four MLS meetings between Thursday’s opponents finishing with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in midweek.

Bet: Both teams to score at Atlanta United vs New England Revolution 2/3 for Thursday’s MLS showdown @ 1xBet
