Atlanta will face the Canadians at home without any weaknesses. The hosts are doing quite well after a good streak of 3 matches without a defeat. The guests went to Atlanta in a reserve squad, 3/4 of the main squad will not play: Bradley, Delgado, Laryea, Auro, Bono, Soteldo, Lawrence, Osorio, Mavinga. Only the 3 primary players will go out onto the pitch.
DC United is playing well on the stabilized, right quality level, from 4 games into league without lost. Last game they won against Columbus Crew 4:2 in good shape. Guests after last match lost 2 important defenders Camacho, Wanyama. They have joined to 3rd Struna and strikers Lappalainen, Quioto. Coach will have great headache to find out replacement into defense line for this game.
Portland is located on7 placed into table, they looks to be ok, won last game with Dallas 1:0, but this opponent is taking last table position with really bad shape and quality. Previous lost Portland against Austin 4:1 is more adequate. Today hosts cannot count on couple of important players : Attinella, Jome, Niezgoda, Polo, Zuparic so they for sure will have more issues in previous 2 games. Looking on Los Angeles they are in good form , have no problems into squad, will have all players available, looks to have all 3 points from this meeting.
Despite of some form improvement into Miami team they are still losing, last game with NY City 3:2. In the upcoming game with NY Red Bulls, it can be the same story due to long list of missing players. They will have 5 main players off due to different circumstances, inured: Juan Agudelo, Andrés Reyes, Luis Robles (goalkeeper), Leandro Gonzalez Pirez – suspended. Rodolfo Pizarro – off, due to participation in national team meetings.
Los Angeles last game strongly won 6:0, so Today they are in really good mental conditions. Opponents from San Jose are struggling, last 2 games lost in differences couple of goals. Additionally a lot of players are out: Casey Walls, Guram Kashia, Jacob Akanyirige, Oswaldo Alanis, Matt Bersano, Danny Hoesen.
Columbus Crew in the good shape, din’t lost from 4 matches. Today with full strength. Guests looks to be in the different feelings, into last game red card received Jan Gregus. Also sidelined are Tyler Miller, Finlay, Osvaldo Alonso, Luis Amarilla.
Hosts after last draw and lost into Today’s meeting would like to come back on the winning path. They will play in the strongest possible squad. Montreal in the other hand lost 2 previous games gathering 2 read cards so Today we will not see: Quioto R. Camacho R. Those players joined recently sidelined Steeven Saba, Mathieu Choinière, Ballou Tabla.
NY Red Bulls are overcoming series of 3 lost in this match. They have really good chance to win cause guests cannot play with 4 key players Aurelien Collin, Kai Wagner, Jose Martinez, Jamiro Monteiro. Missed of those guys caused them lost in previous game with Columbus 0:1
In the last won game DC United with NY Red Bulls 0:1, we could see a little bit form improvement of DC. Unfortunately in the upcoming match they cannot dedicate: Paul Arriola, Edison Flores, Russell Canouse, questionably Steven Birnbaum, Frédéric Brillant, Chris Odoi-Atsem.
NY City in form, won last 3 games, won’t have any injures into team.
