Philadelphia vs Atlanta United (By: TFB)
The latest round of MLS action is kicked off in the east as Philadelphia Union welcome the MLS leaders Atlanta.
Philadelphia have had a pretty average season so far and probably lie where most people would expect them to in 8th position, just outside the play-offs. When all is said and done they will likely miss out on a play-off spot.
Philly have had some success on home soil lately winning 4 of their last 5 home games but looking at the bigger picture their overall home form is quite average. Home advantage often counts for a lot in the MLS but the home side on this occasion don't quite have the record of some of the big guns.
Atlanta lead the Eastern Conference and the whole of the MLS if you combine both Conferences. They also boast the best away record which is huge when home form is key in this league.
They have a frightening attack with Jozef Martinez and Miguel Almiron proving a deadly combination with 25 MLS goals between them.
Impressively they only have 2 away losses in their last 14 on the road with the last one being thanks to a last minute Dallas winner last week.
