The Galaxy will be looking to win their first ever game against Atlanta United. They will have to win on the road to do so.
The Galaxy suffered a loss to Portland by a score of 4-0 last time they took the pitch. They now have a losing record on the road, posting four wins, five losses an one draw. They are just 2-3 in their last five matches and their last road win came all the way back in June.
The Galaxy’s attack clearly relies on Ibra to get anything going. They also struggle to score on the road, averaging just one goal per game. This is a huge issue because Atlanta is easily one of the toughest place to play. For the Galaxy to even have a chance, they are going to need to score two goals. This is troublesome because in two games against Atlanta, they have yet to score at all. Also, Ibra will be out for the Galaxy, so finding goals will be a huge issue.
Just like the attack, the defending also suffers greatly when they play on the road. They are allowing an average of 1.5 goals per game and just allowed four goals to their rivals. Atlanta is a much better home team, so the Galaxy are going to have to play extremely tight in thee back. A clean sheet is asking a lot, but that is what needs to happen if they want to steal any points.
Atlanta United FC
Atlanta jumped on LAFC in the opening minutes to take a 1-0 lead in their last game. They then proceeded to allow four straight goals before grabbing two more to make it a 4-3 final. They will be happy to return home, where they have won eight times this season. A win over the Galaxy will see them tied Philadelphia at the top of the East with 39 points.
Atlanta’s attack actually played pretty good considering they were on the road taking on LAFC. Their attack at home however, is just a different animal. They average two goals per game in their own stadium. They allow 0.67 goals on average at home too, so they should be able to contain Ibra and keep the Galaxy to one goal at the minimum.
