Atlanta United will be looking to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Orlando City when they host Inter Miami at their Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Five Stripes have been struggling to find their best form at the start of the season, with top scorer Josef Martinez being sorely missed. The Venezuela international is out for the rest of the season, but Atlanta United are surely capable of matching Inter Miami at home ground. The Herons failed to turn their dominance into goals in a 1-0 loss at Nashville SC, with the team suffering their sixth defeat on their debut season in MLS. Hollywoodbet enables users to use analytical tools before placing a bet on one of the teams.
Inter Miami aim to get back on course, but they will have to do it without injured quartet Acosta, Matuidi, Norman, and Ulysse. Even though Josef Martinez remains in the recovery room for Atlanta United, we are tempted to put our money on the Five Stripes as they are a more experienced side than Inter Miami.
