Atlanta United vs. Montreal Impact: Preview, Picks, and Odds

Last Updated on May 13, 2021 12:54 pm by

At the Mercedes-Benz Stadium this Saturday, May 15, another MLS matchday will be played, where Atlanta United, coached by former Argentina international Gabriel Heinze, will be looking for the three points that will allow them to breathe – after the elimination in CONCACAF Champions against Philadelphia Union and their last draw in the league against Inter Miami, where the positive of the match was the re-encounter of Atlanta’s historic scorer Josef Martinez, who was out of the field for more than 562 days.

On the other side will be visiting the Montreal Impact, who, when reviewing the history between both teams playing in Atlanta, gives a slight impression that it will be the red and black team who finally manages to get the win.

This duel will be at 18:00 E.T and will be broadcasted on ESPN Play.

Five key facts to know ahead of the Atlanta United vs. Montreal Impact match:

  1. The Montreal Impact have visited the Mercedes-Benz Stadium three times, where they have never been able to pick up a point (3L).
  2. Atlanta United dominates the head-to-head record with four wins, one draw, and one loss to the Montreal Impact.
  3. In no match between the two in MLS has the game ended with no goals on the scoreboard, at least 2 goals have been scored per game.
  4. Atlanta United has not had the best run at the start of the season, currently with two draws, two losses, and a win over Chicago Fire.
  5. The Quebec-based team currently has one win, two draws, and one loss, which came last weekend against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

The team coached by Gabriel Heinze is going through a very irregular moment at the beginning of the season, so at home, they will have to show their best against a team that, historically at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, they have always managed to beat.

Another important fact for Atlanta United is the return of the most important player in the club’s history, the Venezuelan Josef Alexander Martinez, who scored the only goal in the draw against Inter Miami last weekend. For Atlanta United, this match is important because, with a hypothetical victory, they would reach 8 points, with which they will surely climb a few steps in the standings of the MLS Eastern Conference.

Montreal will travel to Atlanta with the hope of winning for the first time at Mercedes-Benz Stadium:

The team coached by Wilfried Nancy will have a great challenge in this weekend’s match, and they have a new opportunity to visit Atlanta United’s stadium at the beginning of the season since the team that lives in Quebec City has never been able to win away against Atlanta United. That is why this match could be a very special game for them since, with a draw or a win, they would be writing a new part in this history between both clubs, which currently have the same score in the Eastern Conference of the MLS.
