Predicting Atlanta United's starting lineup vs. Montreal Impact

New, comment

This match is big.

MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy at Atlanta United FC John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

After a comfortable win against the Los Angeles Galaxy, Atlanta United look to continue their terrific form against a Montreal Impact side that will be desperate for three points. Greg Garza will likely be back in the XI on Sunday, but could we see any other changes from Tata Martino? Here is the definite, surefire lineup for September 24th.*

*I'm probably wrong.

Formation: 4-3-3.

Goalkeeper: Brad "Lex Luthor" Guzan.

Left Back: Greg Garza. Martino said last Tuesday that Garza "might be" available against Montreal. If he's ruled out hours after this story is posted like last week, I demand amnesty from the almighty Rob Usry and a free maté from Martino. Now we play the waiting game.

Center Back #1: Leandro Gonzalez Pirez. The Galaxy tried time after time to lob the ball over Pirez to a sprinting attacker, but LGP was having none of it. Top 5 CB in MLS.

Center Back #2: Michael Parkhurst.

Right Back: Anton Walkes.

Central Midfielder #1: Carlos Carmona.

Central Midfielder #2: Jeff Larentowicz.

Attacking Midfielder: Miguel Almiron.

Left Winger: Yamil Asad. He did his best Josef Martinez impression against the Galaxy.

Right Winger: Hector Villalba.

Striker: Josef Martinez. He's currently tied for 4th in MLS in goals scored. The person he's tied with is Montreal's own Ignacio Piatti. This should be fun.

To recap, here's my projected lineup against the Montreal Impact.
