ATLANTA UNITED VS FC DALLAS (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 19.04.2019

It’s been a slow start to the season for Atlanta United after winning just one of their opening five MLS games (W1, D2, L2). Their 2-0 win against New England last time out was the first time they scored more than one goal in a league match this season – it was also their first league clean sheet too.
Although just five games into the new season, scoring goals may be a recurring problem for Frank de Boer’s men. His side’s tally of 58 shots is the second lowest in the MLS so far, and their total of four goals scored ranks them as the worst attack in the division to date.
FC Dallas have made a much brighter start to their campaign, winning four of their opening seven league matches (W4, D1, L2). Goals have been no such trouble for the away side, with only five other MLS teams bettering their tally of 12. Additionally, they have scored two or more goals in each of their four league victories so far.
These two sides have been even competitors so far, winning one apiece from their two previous H2H clashes. Both of those matches saw over 2.5 goals.
Players to watchEzequiel Barco looks set to be Atlanta’s main threat this season, and has three goals in his previous three league appearances.
Despite playing in defence, Reto Ziegler has already scored three league goals for Dallas this campaign – two of which came in his two previous MLS matches.
Stat attack: Each of Atlanta’s previous two league games finished 2-0 (W1, L1).
There has been a penalty awarded in each of Dallas’ previous two league matches.
Dallas have scored 33.33% of their league goals in the opening 15 minutes.
