Atlanta United vs DC United: Prediction
Atalanta are a team on form, while DC United are the exact opposite. We haven’t seen much of Atalanta, while DC’s away record in previous MLS seasons is poor and this is carried over in the new season. A home win could be the outcome of this match, but one must expect few goals from this encounter.
