Can you believe there’s only four regular season MLS match remaining? Atlanta United leave home for the first time in seven matches and head up north to take on the New England Revolution. On what could be a cold and rainy night, Atlanta look to stay hot on the heels of New York City FC for the No. 2 seed and first-round bye in the playoffs.
These two teams played just two weeks ago when the Five Stripes tied the MLS record for biggest victory margin ever with a 7-0 crushing of the Revs. That was in the friendly confines of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. You can expect a totally different story tonight at Gillette Stadium, where the Revs are an impressive 11-2-2 at home.
Miguel Almiron is still out with a hamstring injury, but everyone else should still be available. Could Tata Martino elect to rest anyone? He told the AJC’s Doug Roberson that he’ll likely field a similar lineup to what we’ve seen over the past several games. Our Haris Kruskic thinks this could be the match to rest Jeff Larentowicz. We’ll have to see what happens. Whatever the lineup is, they’ll be under pressure to get three points with the race of playoff positioning hot and heavy.
