Player to watch: Cristian Arango

With 16 goals scored since the start of the season, Cristian Arango has a good chance of getting the Top Goalscorer Award in 2024. Of course, he’d have to work extra hard to prove our Real Salt Lake vs Atlanta United predictions correct, as the likes of Benteke are ready to swoop in and steal the award from it.

Second player to watch: Zack MacMath

Zack MacMath did not have a good match against Houston Dynamo last week. Coach Ben Olsen’s troops managed to produce only two shots on target, but he couldn’t save either one of them.
