Atlanta United host MLS newbies Charlotte at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in their upcoming Eastern Conference fixture on Sunday.

The home side kicked off their 2022 campaign with a 3-1 home win over Sporting Kansas City but fell to a 3-0 loss in their first away game at Colorado Rapids last week.

Charlotte made history in their first-ever home game in the MLS against LA Galaxy, a game that saw 74,479 people in attendance at the Bank of America Stadium.

They have got off to a slow start and are yet to score a goal in two games so far. They will be desperate to change that in this game.

They did not look solid in their away game at Colorado Rapids as they conceded three times despite dominating possession. They're expected to have a better outing at home turf in this game.

Charlotte suffered consecutive defeats in their opening two MLS fixtures but they are not the first team to suffer that fate. Seven expansion clubs before them have lost their first two games in Major League Soccer action.

Atlanta have a solid home record and should be able to secure a narrow win against their eastern rivals.
