Atlas vs Philadelphia Union Predictions & Betting Lines

The second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League clash between Atlas and Philadelphia Union at Estadio Jalisco is expected to be a real thriller between two equals. Stay with us to find out more about it in these Atlas vs Philadelphia Union betting tips.

Draw

Our primary Atlas vs Philadelphia Union prediction will be appreciated by Philly’s fans. Football Whispers’ soccer experts expect a draw at Estadio Jalisco. Yes, we know Philadelphia Union were the way better of the two teams at Subaru Park but now, Benjamin Mora’s boys will be the ones to exploit the home-field advantage. And we all know how difficult opponent Atlas is at home.

Atlas have two victories, two draws, and only one loss in their domestic league while Philadelphia Union’s tally is a tad less impressive. Jim Curtin’s boys have recorded only two victories, one draw, and four losses in their seven MLS games.

Sure, this is only a CONCACAF Champions League game but with Philly in such a poor mood, it’s only logical that Thursday’s clash will be a tad more equal.

BTTS

Seeing as Philadelphia Union are leading 1-0 on aggregate, Benjamin Mora’s boys will go all out in search of victory and a spot in the semi-finals. Thursday’s match is anyone’s for the taking really and that means we’ll surely see plenty of good goalscoring opportunities.

The first match at Subaru Park was packed with goal chances that the attackers just couldn’t make count. Our top Atlas vs Philadelphia Union prediction expects goals galore at Estadio Jalisco as we saw 18 shots at target from Philly in the first leg! Atlas didn’t sleep through the game and managed to riffle eight shots themselves.
