Our prediction for this MLS match:
There will be fireworks when Columbus Crew and Atlanta United face each other at MAPFRE Stadium in what is expected to be a very entertaining game. Columbus have been having their ups and downs of late, but they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Major League Soccer. The Five Stripes desperately needed a win against Cincinnati, and they managed to get one.
Atlanta United, though, are not enjoying a season to remember, and, no doubt, Columbus will pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. In each of their previous three meetings in MLS Columbus emerged triumphant, and we do not believe that Atlanta United are capable of putting an end to the negative trend. Dutch international Wormgoor is the only absentee in the home team.
