The sides enter Saturday's contest three points separated in a competitive Eastern Conference table. Atlanta United had a mix of results last week, beating Colorado Rapids 4-0 at home midweek then playing Chicago Fire to a 3-3 draw in a wild night in the Windy City. Orlando, meanwhile, has won only once in its last seven home matches in all competitions, but most recently won on the road 3-1 over Inter Miami CF.
Series History and Last Meeting
Atlanta United has lost only three of its 18 all-time meetings with Orlando City in all competitions, but has only managed to win two times in the last nine encounters. One of those was in the last meeting between the two teams on September 14, 2022. Atlanta United won on the road at Exploria Stadium 1-0 behind a goal in the 72nd minute from Thiago Almada.
Players To Watch
Giorgos Giakoumakis (Atlanta United) – It's hard not to look for Atlanta United's 6-foot-1 striker from Crete, otherwise known as "Tank." Giakoumakis has scored eight goals in 10 MLS appearances and scored in each of Atlanta's last away matches, include a brace on the road last time out in Chicago that landed him on the MLS Team of the Matchday. If he scores Saturday in Orlando, he'll join Paul Arriola of FC Dallas as the only MLS players to score in four consecutive road games.
Ercan Kara (Orlando City SC) – On the other side of the coin is Ercan Kara, the 6-foot-4 Austrian for Orlando City SC. Like Giakoumakis for Atlanta, Kara is a designated player, a striker and will be looking to continue a streak Saturday. Kara scored the opening goal in the club's win over Inter Miami CF, his third straight match with a goal. Only three players in Orlando City's history have scored in four straight MLS matches: Daryl Dike, Nani and Dom Dwyer.
