Gonzalo Pineda has never tasted victory against New York City. Atlanta United’s last success against this opponent was on the 11th of August, 2019.

New York City team news and form: Cushing’s boys must adapt

Coach Nick Cushing’s players haven’t been up to par this season. They recorded one win, one draw, and four losses in six Major League Soccer games. However, the 1-1 tie against Inter Miami at DRV PNK Stadium was truly something impressive, and we are sure we will see more of the same from this team on the 7th of March.

Predicted lineup: Freese (GK), Tanasijevic, Martins, Gray, Wolf, Sands, Parks, Ilenic, Martinez, Bakrar & Rodriguez

Atlanta United team news and form: Strong attack not enough

Atlanta United had the 3rd-best attacking record in the league last season, and they sure seem quite adept at scoring in the 2024 campaign as well, with nine goals scored thus far. However, the team’s Achilles’ heel is the defense, as Pineda’s boys concede goals way too frequently.

Predicted lineup: Guzan (GK), Lennon, Cobb, Williams, Wiley, Slisz, Muyumba, Silva, Almada, Lobzhanidze & Giakoumakis

Player to watch: Georgios Giakoumakis

Greek goalscoring sensation Georgios Giakoumakis deserves to be the player to watch in our New York City vs Atlanta United prediction, as he’s by far the most important player for coach Pineda. Since the start of the 2024 MLS season, Georgios scored a total of five goals and supplied a teammate with an assist.

Giakoumakis on the right track

If Atlanta United’s striker keeps on scoring, he might just give the Herons’ Suarez a run for his money in the Top Goalscorer chase this season.
