Cincinnati team news and form: That’s how you do it!

If you want to become an MLS champion, you have to perform in the big games. That’s exactly what coach Pat Noonan’s boys did last week when they got a crucial 1-2 win at Lower.com Field. Sure, perhaps Nancy’s side was the better of the two on the pitch, but Luciano Acosta and his colleagues were smart enough to use the few goalscoring chances wisely and deserved their win, which is a huge boost to our Cincinnati vs Atlanta United’s predictions.

Predicted lineup: Celentano (GK), Murphy, Miazga, Robinson, Powell, Bucha, Nwobodo, Orellano, Acosta, Baird & Kubo

Atlanta United team news and form: Injured Giakoumakis back in business

Georgios Giakoumakis was injured for the better part of the campaign thus far, but he is now back to full fitness and made an appearance for Atlanta United in last week’s defeat against DC United. He couldn’t quite help his teammates get a result, as the game ended 2-3 in favor of Benteke and his colleagues.

Predicted lineup: Guzan (GK), Lennon, Cobb, Adam, Wiley, Muyumba, Slisz, Lobzhanidze, Almada, Mosquera & Giakoumakis

Player to watch: Georgios Giakoumakis

Yes, Luciano Acosta will likely be the difference-maker at TQL Stadium, as he did win the Player of the Season Award in 2023, but we think Giakoumakis is a close second. The Greek finisher has a market price of €6.0m on his head, and you can see why.

Injuries are long gone

Georgios Giakoumakis spent the better part of the season on the bench. Still, he is now back to full fitness and is already the top finisher under Pineda’s disposal, with five goals to his name, which might threaten our Cincinnati vs Atlanta United predictions.
