Atlanta United team news and form: Atlanta sinking without trace

With three consecutive losses in Major League Soccer, Atlanta United are now in 12th place in the Eastern Conference’s ranking. The 2-0 win over lackluster Charlotte Independence in the U.S. Open Cup match a couple of days ago will hardly keep the fans satisfied for much longer.

Predicted lineup: Guzan (GK), Abram, Bailey, Cobb, Lennon, Slisz, McCarty, Fortune, Almada, Giakoumakis & Lobzhanidze

Player to watch: Hany Mukhtar

Hany Mukhtar is the player to watch in our professional Nashville vs Atlanta United prediction, with two goals and two assists since the start of the campaign. Sure, that’s not the most impressive record, but we believe he has a lot more where that came from.

Mukhtar can do better

During the last campaign in MLS, Mukhtar was a true force to be reckoned with. He scored 15 goals and supplied teammates with nine assists. Surely, he can do better in 2024, right?
