New York Red Bulls vs Atlanta United Match Preview
Atlanta United are now showing why they are the reigning MLS champions – but their perfect five-match run is backed to end in the Big Apple.
Winners of the MLS Cup in only their second season, Atlanta appointed Frank de Boer as manager before the start of this campaign after Gerardo Martino left to take over the Mexico national team.
De Boer’s poor start revived memories of his short, bleak spell at Crystal Palace, but he has now got Atlanta firing on all cylinders and they have won six of their last seven games to nil including the latest five.
But they have yet to score away to the Red Bulls in three visits and it will be difficult to maintain their current sequence based upon the New Yorkers’ improved recent form.
Red Bulls manager Chris Armas had been under intense pressure, Thierry Henry being linked with his job, before turning things around with three victories out of four including an impressive 3-1 success at Dallas last weekend.
With revenge for their defeat in last year’s Eastern Conference Final sure to provide some incentive, the Red Bulls are fancied to put the brakes on Atlanta’s winning spree.
