Atlanta United team news and form: Pineda out, Valentino in

After a series of bad results, Atlanta United’s men in charge opted to part ways with Mexican coach Pineda. Oscar made way for coach Rob Valentino, so it will surely be interesting to see if the US-born manager has what it takes to take Atlanta to the next level.

Predicted lineup: Cohen (GK), Gregersen, Williams, Abram, Lennon, McCarty, Muyumba, Wiley, Lobzhanidze, Almada & Thiare

Houston Dynamo team news and form: Mediocre display by Houston

Coach Ben Olsen’s boys scored 18 and conceded 18 this season. Such sort of display won’t fly under coach Olsen’s rule, and we are convinced that he will be more than eager to prove to the critics that he has what it takes to drag the team forward in 2024.

Predicted lineup: Tarbell (GK), Steres, Micael, Bartlow, Escobar, Artur, Bassi, Herrera, Carrasquilla, Blessing & Kowalczyk

Player to watch: Thiago Almada

Thiago Almada is the light at the end of the tunnel for coach Rob Valentino. The up-and-coming Argentine playmaker is performing at a very high level again, and we are convinced he has what it takes to prove our Atlanta United vs Houston Dynamo predictions correct.

Almada’s contribution not enough against Charlotte

Thiago scored his 4th goal of the season at home against Charlotte, but, alas, the visitors emerged victorious again. Surely, he’d like to put on a show for the fans once more, so we should see Atlanta United win this time.
