Orlando City take on Atlanta United this week

The MLS is back in action with another round of matches this week as Orlando City take on Atlanta United on Wednesday. The two teams have experienced contrasting fortunes this season and will want to win this game.

Orlando City are currently in fifth place in the MLS Eastern Conference standings and have been fairly impressive this season. The hosts suffered a damaging 5-1 defeat at the hands of Philadelphia Union in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.

Atlanta United, on the other hand, are in 10th place in the league table at the moment and have struggled this year. The away side eased past Toronto FC by a 4-2 scoreline last week and will need to step up in this fixture.

Orlando City vs Atlanta United Prediction

Orlando City did exceptionally well to win the US Open Cup this year but will be reeling from their defeat against Philadelphia Union. The hosts were defensively poor on the day and have a point to prove going into this match.

Atlanta United have a depleted squad at the moment and have been a mere shadow of their former selves. Orlando City are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this game.

Prediction: Orlando City 3-2 Atlanta United
