Team News: Atlanta United
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Atlanta United boss Gonzalo Pineda to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group of players. Osvaldo Alonso (Knee Problems) is out of contention.
It looks as if The Five Stripes should kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation for this one with Brad Guzan, Brooks Lennon, Miles Robinson, Luis Abram, Caleb Wiley, Tristan Muyumba, Matheus Rossetto, Saba Lobzhanidze, Thiago Almada, Xande Silva and Georgios Giakoumakis.
Team News: Montreal Impact
Due to a completely injury-free group available to choose from, the Montreal Impact boss Hernán Losada doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this match.
There’s a good chance that Impact will likely make use of a 3-4-1-2 system, settling for Jonathan Sirois, George Campbell, Joel Waterman, Gabriele Corbo, Mathieu Choiniere, Ahmed Hamdi, Samuel Piette, Z. Brault-Guillard, Lassi Lappalainen, Kwadwo Opoku and N. Chinonso Offor.
We’re inclined to think that Atlanta United will most probably be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
At the same time, Montreal Impact won’t find it easy to score themselves but do we see them hitting back at some stage, too.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning score for Atlanta United at the conclusion of the game.
