Philadelphia Union vs Atlas FC Game Preview

Both teams come into this match struggling. Philly has begun the 2023 season with two wins, one draw, and three losses (two losses and a draw in the last three games). Atlas has played thirteen matches, with just two wins, seven draws, and four losses (one win, one draw, and one loss in their last three games). That said, it’s not uncommon for teams to have strong cup runs despite struggling in the league. Perhaps the most famous example comes from England, where Wigan Athletic won the FA Cup (England’s version of the US Open Cup) the same season as getting relegated from the Premier League.

It’s always difficult to judge how two teams from different leagues of a perceived similar level will fare against each other. Philadelphia being favorites for this first leg is a reflection of how MLS has caught up to Liga MX in recent years.

For a more in-depth preview of tonight’s match, Tim Lovenguth has what you’re looking for:

Philadelphia vs Atlas FC Prediction

Despite poor league form, Philadelphia’s last home match in the CCL was their best game of the season. It’s hard to look past them for this game. Given their high expected goals in the league, and the potential of their front three, they could score a few. Add in that 4 of Atlas’ last 5 games in all competitions have featured at least 4 goals, and I’m backing over 2.5 goals.

Betting pick: Over 2.5 goals -105
