Our Prediction:

Atlanta Utd will win

Atlanta Utd – Columbus Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 19:00

Almiron will be the man to watch in this match. Atlanta desperately missed him last week in Chicago as they fell to defeat. Not having him from the get-go saw them lose his pressing ability as well as his great touch on the ball. That is a big miss for them, and they will be very happy to welcome him back to the scene. He has seven goals so far, but five of those came from two matches. That has to be fixed just a little as they are really leaning too heavily upon him right now.

Speaking of his international career, Martinez made his Venezuela debut against El Salvador, coming from the bench after 76 minutes. The Venezuela international currently plays (on loan) for Atlanta United in MLS and he made his debut for Gerardo Martinos team against New York Red Bulls. In December, 2017 Josef Martinez scored his first ever goal in the Italian top flight in a 2-2 draw with Palermo.
