Pineda Looks to Harness Confidence from Atlanta United’s Impressive US Open Cup Victory against D.C. United

Atlanta United is set to take on D.C. United this weekend at home following their victorious midweek cup match. Coach Gonzalo Pineda is optimistic about the team’s turnaround after a challenging period.

The team’s recent 3-0 triumph over the Charlotte Independence in the US Open Cup has boosted morale after a string of five winless MLS games. Pineda is counting on this newfound momentum to propel the players to success in the league.

Meanwhile, D.C. United has struggled in their last five matches, including squandering a two-goal lead in their recent draw against the Philadelphia Union. Despite the setback, head coach Troy Lesesne remains confident about the team’s progress.

Key players to watch in the upcoming match include Atlanta United’s Giorgos Giakoumakis and D.C. United’s Christian Benteke. Both have been standout performers this season and will be crucial to their respective teams’ success.

In terms of predictions, Atlanta United holds the advantage with a 55.2% probability of winning, compared to D.C. United’s 19.8%. Given D.C.’s poor away form, Atlanta could capitalize on this and secure a victory on Saturday.
