Seattle Sounders vs Atlanta United Lineups & Team News

Seattle Sounders

Coach Brian Schmetzer’s tricks got Seattle Sounders thus far. We believe the team can soar to success this season with the experienced manager in charge. The club currently stands in 4th place in the Western Conference, with only a one-point difference between them and the 2022 MLS Champions Los Angeles FC.

Predicted lineup – Frei (GK), Tolo, Ragen, Gomez, Roldan, Paulo, Vargas, Chu, Rusnak, C. Roldan & Ruidiaz

Atlanta United

The Five Stripes had a tremendous start to the season but their issues at the back quickly caught up to them. The team did score 42 goals and that’s a wonderful feat to have, but coach Pineda should address the lack of defensive consistency, as his team also allowed 39 shots to get past Brad Guzan.

Predicted lineup – Guzan (GK), Hernandez, Sanchez, Abram, Wiley, Sejdic, Sosa, Lennon, Chol, Almada & Berry

Player to Watch: Brad Guzan

Atlanta United’s captain is among the most prolific US players in the last 20 years. At the age of 38, he is still a starter everywhere he goes. However, his reflexes aren’t what they once used to be. Brad is conceding goals left and right and that fact might benefit our Seattle Sounders vs Atlanta United predictions this week.

A good example of just how subpar Brad Guzan looks compared to a world-class player is the goal Lionel Messi scored against him. La Pulga had a clear chance one-on-one against Guzan and he made a one-two with the goalpost before scoring. We aren’t sure if Brad Guzan is the way to go when facing a difficult opponent such as Seattle Sounders.
