Our tipster is backing Frank de Boer's charges to record a comfortable victory when they play host to Chris Armas' side at Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Atlanta United play host to New York Red Bulls in Major League Soccer on Sunday evening.   

Frank de Boer's side boast a hugely impressive record on home soil, having lost just one of their last 22 MLS matches at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Both sides suffered heavy defeats on Wednesday night. Atlanta were crushed 5-1 by Chicago Fire, while New York were thumped 4-0 by Houston Dynamo.

Latest odds

Nevertheless, with such a solid home record behind them, Atlanta could attract some support at 4/7 (1.57) with bet365 to win this one.

Chris Armas' side, meanwhile, have won just two of their last 10 away matches in this competition and were beaten 3-0 on their last visit to this venue. The odds compilers offer 19/4 (5.75) that the visitors come out on top on this occasion. The draw is available at 14/5 (3.80) with bet365 ahead of Sunday's showdown.

Team news

Leandro Gonzalez Pirez misses out for the hosts through suspension after being sent off on Wednesday night. Emerson Hyndman joined Atlanta United on loan from Bournemouth this week and could make his debut this weekend.

Bradley Wright-Phillips may make a timely return from injury to provide a much-needed fillip for Armas' men, who are missing Kaku and Michael Amir Murillo after they were both sent off against Houston. Kemar Lawrence is not back from international duty with Jamaica yet.

Preview

Atlanta have kept a clean sheet in all but one of their last eight home wins in MLS. The hosts can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) with bet365 to win to nil this weekend whilst the same firm go 11/8 (2.38) that New York fail to find the net on their visit to Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Prediction

The hosts have shown that they are a significant force on their own patch and New York, too, often produce their best form in front of their own supporters. Sunday's trip to Georgia, then, could prove to be a tough test for Armas' side.

As such, the 7/4 (2.75) quote from bet365 for Atlanta to pick up all three points without conceding could provide value for punters. United have won six successive home matches in this competition and could chalk up a magnificent seventh straight home win on Sunday.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Atlanta United to win to nil at 7/4 (2.75) for a 1pt stake at bet365
