Atlanta United vs. New York Red Bulls  Prediction and Match Preview

Atlanta United take on New York Red Bulls in the MLS Eastern Conference on Wednesday.

The hosts can move within five points of their forthcoming opponents with a victory, having played one game fewer than them, too.

Atlanta remain without club captain Brad Guzan after the former Aston Villa goalkeeper ruptured his Achilles tendon.

Loanee stopper Rocco Rios Novo will continue to deputise in goal, but Emerson Hyndman (hamstring), Osvaldo Alonso (ACL), Dylan Castanheira and Miles Robinson (both Achilles) are all set to miss out.

Josef Martinez could return to lead the line having only been utilised from the bench last time out in the 2-2 draw at Cincinnati.

NY Red Bulls, on the other hand, do not appear to have any injury concerns restricting Struber’s selection choices.

Having blanked in their last two matches, the former Barnsley boss will be challenging the likes of Luquinhas, Lewis Morgan and Patryk Klimala to deliver in front of goal, otherwise changes could be imminent in the near future.

Atlanta United possible starting lineup:
Rios Novo; Sanchez, Franco, Gutman; Lennon, Almada, Sosa, Wiley; Araujo, Martinez, Moreno
