New York City FC vs Atlanta United Live Stream & TV Coverage MLS Live Streaming 2018 Full HD
NYCFC have been fluid formationally in recent weeks, but for this exercise we are going to place Alex Ring in the midfield instead of defense.
Sebastien Ibeagha has claimed the starting role in front of Maxime Chanot for now and Ronald Matarrita is preparing for the World Cup, as Patrick Vieira turned to Ben Sweat in the second half against Orlando City.
For Atlanta, Michael Parkhurst has been a rock in Tata Martino’s back three while Leandro Gonzalez Pirez has rebounded from a horrific start to the season.
The jury is still out on Franco Escobar, who has recently claimed the starting role next to them, but the team’s 1.22 expected goals against per game is good for the second-lowest rate in the league.
Given the changes NYCFC have made in recent weeks and the important absence of Matarrita, the Five Stripes get the nod.
