With a record of two wins and one loss, Atlanta United steps onto the field with a slight advantage, but in soccer, anything can change rapidly.

For Atlanta United, Xande Silva is on the rise. After scoring his first goal of the season against Charlotte FC, Silva has shown impressive talent. His ability to create opportunities and finish with precision could be the difference-maker Atlanta needs to emerge victorious.

On Houston Dynamo's side, Hector Herrera is the man to watch. The team captain, recently named to the MLS Team of the Week, has been an exemplary leader. His passing accuracy, ability to create chances, and regain possession are attributes that could make life difficult for Atlanta.

For Atlanta United, a win would reinforce their historical dominance over Houston Dynamo, solidifying their position as a force to be reckoned with in MLS. For Houston, it's a chance to overturn the humiliating defeat of 2019 and show they are a renewed team ready to compete at the highest level.
