The MLS All-Star game takes place tonight at Exploria Stadium in Orlando. A packed line-up of stars from MLS takes on Atletico Madrid at 8pm Eastern.

All star game

Atletico is one of the top teams in Europe, having won La Liga on ten occasions (most recently in 2014), and been runner-up on ten other occasions. They have also won the Spanish Cup ten times and been to the Champions League final twice in the last six seasons.

Joao Felix

They have some of the most feared players in European football, notably striker Diego Costa who scored four goals against Real Madrid last weekend (before being sent off). Also in the roster is new $134M signing; wonderkid Joao Felix.

In goal is one of the most highly-rated goalkeepers in World football, Jan Oblak, and in defense Stefan Savic and Kieran Trippier. Their midfield is also full of stars, such as Spanish duo Koke and Saul Niguez.

Match Winner

It will certainly be interesting to see such world-class talent going up against aging stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney for the MLS side.

Remember this still amounts to a pre-season match for Atleti, so they won't be fully fit and will want to avoid injuries, whilst the MLS players will want to prove themselves against one of Spain's top sides.

Odds Boosts at DraftKings
