Two sides who are looking to book their spot in the semi-finals of this year’s US Open Cup, Atlanta United will host Saint Louis in the early hours of Thursday.
Starting with the hosts, while Atlanta might be enduring a difficult run of form, the defending MLS champions still have their sights set on claiming silverware this season. In their 19 MLS matches this year, they have recorded nine wins, three draws and seven defeats, scoring 27 and conceding 23 in return. With a points tally of 30, they currently sit six points adrift of top spot in the Eastern Conference. As for their recent run of results, although Atlanta have recorded just one win in their last four matchups, they are enjoying an eight-match unbeaten run on home soil, winning seven of those contests.
As for the visitors, also enduring their own very worrying run of form, Saint Louis have begun freefalling out of the USL play-off picture. In their 15 matches this season, they have recorded just five victories, six draws and five defeats, scoring 19 and conceding 17 in return. With a points tally of 21, they also sit four points adrift of the top-eight in the Eastern Conference. As for their recent run of results, winning just one of their last five matches across all competitions, Saint Louis have also lost their last three matches on the road, conceding two or more goals in each of those defeats.
