Total Goals Over/Under: Under 2.5

Orlando scored the 2nd most goals in the Eastern Conference, with 40 (1.74 goals per game), while Atlanta scored the 2nd least in the Conference, with 1 goal a game. No player scored over 4 league goals for Atlanta; Orlando had 4 players who surpassed that tally. Orlando City win with a clean sheet, most likely.

Orlando City Win

Historically, Atlanta have won 54% of the ties between the two sides. However, with Orlando having almost double the # of wins as Atlanta United in the regular season last season, recent form suggests City take the points. Orlando also haven’t lost in the last 4 of the matchups between the teams.

Double Chance: Draw or Orlando City Win

The Lions are likely to take all 3 points in this tie, yet Atlanta United may enter this game with a point to prove after a surprisingly poor season last year by their standards. With Josef Martinez back in the team, Atlanta certainly have greater capacity to score and stay in the game if necessary. A tight draw is certainly a possibility, as history still favours Atlanta United.

Orlando City vs Atlanta United Preview and Team News

Orlando City

Orlando City’s head coach is Óscar Pareja, former Colombia international midfielder and ex-coach of MLS teams Colorado Rapids and FC Dallas. Pareja has been at the helm since 2019 and has a win percentage of 44.83% from ~25 games. Left-back Joao Moutinho is out with a hip injury sustained on April 2, gutting depth on the left side of the defence. Winger Chris Mueller is the one to watch in this team, he had 16 goal involvements in 17 league starts last season.

Atlanta United

Former Argentine international defender, Gabriel Heinze, has been at the helm in Atlanta since December 2020. This will be his first MLS game, but he has a 100%-win rate from his first two competitive games. Star Striker Josef Martinez should be fully fit from his ACL tear suffered in March 2020, Atlanta will hope so as the team need his goals. Martinez scored 77 goals in his last 3 MLS seasons, a rate of ~25 league goals a season.
