Atlanta United FC
After two fantastic seasons in 2018 and 2019 when they became MLS champions and finished second the next season, the last two seasons were disappointing for Atlanta. It seems that this season will be even worse than the last in which they finished in 5th place.
Atlanta is currently 11th in the Eastern Conference with 20 points after 18 games and in the run of one win in the last eight games. Only two teams are in the worst form right now.
They are struggling with defense as they have conceded 29 goals so far and only eight teams in MLS have conceded more. They also have only three clean sheets in 18 games this season and in the last eight games, they conceded more than once on seven occasions.

Real Salt Lake
Another good season for Real Salt Lake. After missing the playoffs in the 2020 season they finished 7th in 2021 and got to the Conference final and this season can be even better. Currently, they are 3rd in the Eastern Conference with 30 points after 19 games.
Real Salt Lake was in a great run during May but in the last few weeks, they won only once in the last five games. The good thing for their manager Pablo Mastroeni is that they score goals regularly and they failed to score only once in the last eight.
The major concern is games away from home. Real Salt Lake is a completely different team when they play away from home with only two wins and 18 goals conceded from 24. They kept only two clean sheets away from home and won only once in the last eight games.

Atlanta United FC vs. Real Salt Lake Prediction
Both clubs are in a bad run of results recently and another thing in common is defensive problems in both teams. Maybe they are worse in Atlanta’s team. Atlanta and Salt Lake want to win this game to stop bad run and it’s hard to predict the full-time winner, so we will go for goals in this game.
Both teams are in a good run in terms of goals. Six of the last eight Salt Lake’s games were finished with over 2.5 goals, and seven of the last eight Atlanta’s games also were finished with over 2.5 goals.
