And we're back.

MLS: Atlanta United FC at Columbus Crew SC Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

After a Gold Cup break that lasted for what seemed like an eternity, Atlanta United are ready to get the ball rolling again as they travel to Orlando for the start of a new rivalry. Brad Guzan is now available, but will Tata Martino immediately throw him into the fire? Here is the definite, surefire lineup for July 21st.*

*I'm probably wrong.

Formation: 4-3-3.

Goalkeeper: Brad Guzan. Either Martino starts Guzan with a limited amount of training time alongside the team, or he starts Kyle Reynish. Yeah, let's go with Guzan.

Left Back: Greg Garza.

Center Back #1: Leandro Gonzalez Pirez.

Center Back #2: Michael Parkhurst.

Right Back: Anton Walkes. A new fan favorite.

Center Midfielder #1: Carlos Carmona.

Center Midfielder #2: Jeff Larentowicz.

Attacking Midfielder: Miguel Almiron.

Left Winger: Yamil Asad.

Right Winger: Hector Villalba.

Striker: Josef Martinez. It's really nice(and simple) when everyone is healthy and rested.

To recap, here's my projected lineup against Orlando City.
