Key Stats

  • Atlanta United are getting dangerously close to the bottom of the table in the Eastern Conference, with three wins, four draws, and six matches lost.
  • Los Angeles have a 6-3-4 record in the 2024 MLS campaign.
  • Coach Steven Cherundolo has never lost a game against this opponent.
  • Denis Bounga is the leading finisher for the visitors and his presence is undoubtedly a plus in favor of our Atlanta United vs Los Angeles predictions.

  • HOME: +150 – 38.5%
  • DRAW: +250 – 26.0%
  • AWAY: +167 – 35.5%

*These Atlanta United vs Los Angeles odds are subject to change

According to the odds above, we have Atlanta United down as the expected winners, with a 38.5% win chance on the 26th of May. However, we really like this Los Angeles team, and we believe coach Steven Cherundolo’s boys have the three points up for grabs, despite the odds at +167 suggesting only a 35.5% win probability ahead of the kick-off.

LAFC haven’t exactly thrived in the head-to-head department, but we are sure that with coach Steven Cherundolo in charge, the team can’t lose.

Atlanta United team news and form: Pineda’s boys need to do better

As we mentioned earlier in our Atlanta United vs Los Angeles prediction, coach Pineda’s players are barely performing. They were even close to getting kicked out of the U.S. Open Cup a couple of days ago, as they had to rely on the penalty roulette against Charleston Battery to advance to the next stage of the competition.

Predicted lineup: Guzan (GK), Hernandez, Gregersen, Cobb, Lennon, Slisz, Muyumba, Wiley, Firmino, Lobzhanidze & Rios

Los Angeles team news and form: U.S. Open Cup triumph to give players wings

The 3-0 win over Loudoun United FC in the U.S. Open Cup on the 22nd of May was truly an inspirational work by Cherundolo and his players. The manager opted to give some of his substitutions a chance among the starters and they didn’t let him down.

Player to watch: Denis Bouanga

As we stated earlier in our professional Atlanta United vs Los Angeles predictions, Cherundolo decided to rely mostly on his substitutes in the U.S. Open Cup game a few days back. However, he was smart enough to use Denis Bouanga.

Gabonese winger essential for LAFC

Denis Bouanga was the top goalscorer in Major League Soccer last season and he is surely performing his heart out for the team in 2024 as well. After all, the winger now has eight goals and six assists to his name.
