Two sides who will be looking to pick up an early advantage when the MLS play-offs get underway, New York will host Atlanta on Sunday night.

Starting with the hosts, although New York might have signed off their regular-season run with a tough meeting against Philadelphia on home soil, Ronny Deila’s side put in a rugged display. Picking up a deserved 1-1 draw, despite having to play the majority of the game with 10-men, the Eastern Conference outfit have impressed many at the back end of the campaign. Landing a thumping 3-1 win away at Inter Miami prior to the international break, the Sky Blues have also continued to shine with their performances in the final third. Storming their way to a 6-0 romp against DC United at Yankee Stadium on October 24th, New York have managed to find their best at a perfect time. Desperate to pick up an early advantage on Sunday night, they will also be boosted by the fact that they have landed back-to-back wins the last time Atlanta have come to town.

As for the visitors, while Atlanta might have opened the 2021 campaign in the midst of a woeful run of form, the former MLS champions have managed to find their feet under new boss Gonzalo Pineda. Eventually managing to secure themselves another play-off spot, the Five Stripes were last seen signing off their regular-season run with a 2-1 win away at Cincinnati. Unbeaten in each of their last six contests, a run that stems back to October 3rd, the Georgia-based outfit have also impressed with their displays on the road. Including that deserved victory at the TQL Stadium earlier in the month, Pineda’s men collected seven points from their last three matchups on their travels. It should be noted, with four of Atlanta’s last five MLS matchups finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
