The visitors are actually the ones with the head-to-head advantage here. However, we believe Cincinnati will level the playing field this week.

Cincinnati team news and form: Cincinnati on track

Yes, Cincinnati did not outplay Atlanta United last week, but they did get a thrifty 1-2 win at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. And isn’t that all that matters in soccer? Coach Pat Noonan was happy with his players’ display, so we should see the same players start at TQL Stadium as well.

Predicted lineup: Kann (GK), Robinson, Miazga, Hagglund, Yedlin, Nwobodo, Bucha, Orellano, Acosta, Baird & Kubo

Player to watch: Luciano Acosta

Argentine playmaker Luciano Acosta is among the most prolific Major League Soccer players this season. He came close to winning the Top Goalscorer Award in MLS last season, but he managed to put his hands on the Player of the Season Award, which has far greater value.

Acosta smashing it for Noonan

As we mentioned earlier in our Cincinnati vs Colorado Rapids predictions, Luciano has eight goal contributions this season – three goals and five assists! He should get a chance to perform among the starters against the Rapids.
