LAF vs ATU Dream11 : Western Conference and Eastern Conference stalwarts clash today in an encounter which promises goals galore
Sitting on top of the Western Conference in Major League Soccer after revelling us in a seamless blend of attacking football, for Los Angeles, today’s encounter is all about returning from their 3-2 defeat against LA Galaxy. The two goals from Carlos Vela were not enough to take the side to a win in the revered clash with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring three in a highly competitive and feisty encounter.
However, Los Angeles will be undeterred by that defeat when they face off against Atlanta United today. Having scored a colossal 55 goals in their stay in the league, the side are leading the Western Conference, well ahead by 9 points. They’ll be well aware though that today’s encounter is not going to be easy for them with Atlanta United bringing along with them the identity of an outfit who themselves have reserved a spot in the pinnacles of the league.
Currently sitting in second place behind Philadelphia Union, Atlanta United have over the course of the last week managed to break off a run of results which was pushing them downwards. They managed to register two profound wins in the double gameweek, winning 5-0 against 10 man Houston Dynamo before following it up with an efficient 2-0 pefromance against DC United.
Expect this to be an encounter where the goals comes by at will, a fixture where ether side will leave no stone unturned to scour their way into the opponent’s goal. What does give Los Angeles the edge here is the exemplary goal scorers they posses in their artillery, players who love taking the accountability on themselves. They’ll outscore Union in this one to get their season back to winning ways today.

Goal-Keeper for LAF vs ATU Dream11
We have gone in with Los Angeles’ goal-keeper for this one with Tyler Miller coming in for us. With a save percentage of 72 in the league, he’s one of the most safe pair of hands, a shot stopper known for his ability to keep out shots.
Defenders for LAF vs ATU Dream11
Although they have not managed to register a single cleansheet in their previous 5 encounters, the fact that Los Angeles have only allowed 20 goals to go past them otherwise speaks about the staunch nature of their defensive setup. If there is any side which is going to have even the smallest of likelihood of coming out with a cleansheet, it’s going to be Los Angeles, seeing us go ahead with their entire backline here.
While Jordan Harvey and Eddie Segura are coming on the basis of their cleansheet expectations, Tristan Blackmon makes a way into our side on his ability to contribute to the attacking side as well. He’s seen himself come up with a couple of goals and his ability to find himself on headers could see him flourish today as well.
Midfielders for LAF vs ATU Dream11
Leftwing Justin Meram and CAM Emerson Hyndman are our picks from Atlanta from this one. Although we wanted to pick up Julian Gressel from the side, the hefty price tag slapped on him saw us opt out for the side’s highest assist getter.
Elsewhere coming in from Los Angeles is the two man partnership of Latif Blessing and Eduard Atuesta. What Atuesta offers as a CDM is not only his ability to incorporate tackling points but with his role seeing him carry the ball up the pitch as well to get assists, he makes for a player who could turn out to be a real difference maker to your side today.
