Here are a few records that could be broken during Sunday's match

Josef, Mr. Clean Sheet, and Atlanta supporters could make quite the impact.

Sunday's match against Toronto FC could be historic for a plethora of reasons. MLS took a look at some of the records that could be broken on Decision Day, and a lot of them are either directly or indirectly related to Atlanta's last regular season match of the season.

Most 20+ Goal Scorers in a Season

Nemanja Nikolic, Diego Valeri, and David Villa have already scored at least 20 goals this season, tying the MLS record. Josef Martinez is currently sitting at 18. As we all know, it's certainly not unheard of for Martinez to score multiple goals in a match. It'll likely be tougher against the second best defense in MLS, though.

Toronto Chasing History

Drake's favorite soccer club will look to become the most successful regular season side in league history, as a result on Sunday would eclipse the 1998 Los Angeles Galaxy for most points in a season.

Goals Per Match

Josef Martinez could break a couple records by scoring twice on Sunday, as an incredible 20 goals in 20 matches would see him surpass Stern John's '98 mark of 26 goals in 27 matches for best goal-to-match ratio in a season with at least 20 matches played.

Mr. Clean Sheet

Brad Guzan is doing something that's gone a little unnoticed. With a current shutout streak of 482 minutes placing him 10th all-time in MLS, Guzan could move to third with another shutout against Toronto.

Attendance

Atlanta United supporters will look to break their own attendance record, which was set against Orlando City with a grand total of 70,425. Do your thing, Atlanta. Do your thing.
