Top Atlanta United vs Charlotte Predictions & Betting Suggestions

We are thrilled to provide you with the top Atlanta United vs Charlotte betting tips for this MLS brawl on the 14th of May. Make sure you take your time and read about what our soccer experts had to say on the matter.

Atlanta United to Win

As much as Christian Lattanzio wants his boys to earn some points at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on the 14th of May, this Atlanta United vs Charlotte prediction favors Gonzalo Pineda’s side. Two of the three matches between the two teams ended with Atlanta United victories. The only one that didn’t was a quite controversial 1-0 win for Charlotte.

Seeing as the visitors rank 12th in the Western Conference, we have our doubts if they have the required arsenal to brush Atlanta United aside on Sunday.

Under 2.5 Goals

Goalscorer-in-chief Georgios Giakoumakis is injured and will miss this game for Atlanta United. He and Thiago Almada gelled extremely well this season so this is a huge hit for coach Gonzalo Pineda. He’ll have to search for difference-makers elsewhere as Giakoumakis will most likely miss a couple of games for his team.

The fact that he won’t partake in this MLS clash forced us to provide you with this Atlanta United vs Charlotte prediction. One of the three matches between the two teams ended with a 1-0 win while the other two had three goals – 3-0 and 2-1. We fully anticipate seeing Charlotte do their very best versus Atlanta United as they are desperate for points and this is a solid reason to believe the match at Mercedes-Benz Stadium will end with very few goals.

Atlanta United vs Charlotte Lineups & Team News

Atlanta United

If coach Gonzalo Pineda had a couple of more minutes versus Inter Miami, then they would’ve probably equalized. Everything was going just fine for Phil Neville’s side until the 84th minute of the game when Franco Negri earned himself a foolish red card. This gave Gonzalo Pineda’s boys a lifeline and they managed to reduce the score to 2-1 after Andrew Gutman bagged a 92nd-minute goal.

Predicted lineup – Diop (GK), Gutman, Purata, Robinson, Lennon, Rossetto, Sosa, Wiley, Almada, Araujo & Berry

Charlotte

With three victories, three draws, and five losses in 11 MLS games, Charlotte’s campaign isn’t going as coach Christian Lattanzio planned it. The fans were hoping to see a tad more convincing display than what the team is showing so far and it’s no wonder why our Atlanta United vs Charlotte predictions are the way they are.

Predicted lineup – Kahlina (GK), Afful, Jones, Malanda, Byrne, Swiderski, Bronico, Westwood, Meram, Gaines & Copetti

Player to Watch: Thiago Almada

We are happy for Thiago Almada as he managed to fulfill a childhood dream not too long ago. It was an international match with Argentina versus Panama that ended 2-0 in which Almada and soccer superstar Lionel Messi bagged the only goals. His idol had nice words to say about Atlanta United’s up-and-coming playmaker-in-chief and Almada was on cloud nine after the match.

His confidence received a massive boost as ever since that game, we see Thiago Almada on a whole new level. The 22-year-old is the leading assists provider in MLS and also one of the top finishers at coach Gonzalo Pineda’s disposal. He and Georgios Giakoumakis are joint-top on Atlanta United’s goalscoring charts.
