For Bruce Arena, 2022 has been a long, frustrating year. Riding high after amassing the most points in an MLS season in 2021, New England Revolution’s title defense has been dominated by high-profile departures off the pitches, and inconsistent results on it. This weekend could see the end of the Revs’ playoff hopes if results don’t go their way, so check out SinkorSwimSports for our New England vs Atlanta United prediction, complete with all the latest MLS 2022 odds you need to be following.
New England Revolution coming into the penultimate fixture of their schedule four points off the playoff positions would have seemed unthinkable a year or so ago. But, a 9-12-11 record later, that is the exact position Bruce Arena’s men find themselves in. The chances of the Revs making the postseason are remarkably slim at this point, however ending the season on a high could be a handy way of ensuring they enter 2023 in a better position.
As for Atlanta United, the Five Stripes have had their fair share of controversy off the pitch courtesy of Josef Martinez this season. The Venezuelan was suspended for the Five Stripes’ win at Toronto on September 10 but did return off the bench against Orlando on the 14th. Atlanta United are two points off the playoffs, and two points better off than New England heading into this weekend.
