Atlanta United host the Chicago Fire today in the final home match of the regular season. With just two matches overall left, there’s all left to play for in the Supporters’ Shield race. The Five Stripes hold a one point lead and could mathematically win their first trophy in club history if they can get three points and the New York Red Bulls lose their match at the Philadelphia Union.
It will be a tough task for Tata Martino’s side, despite the fact that their opponents have nothing left to play for having already been eliminated from playoff contention. They’ll have to get the important win without two of their most dynamic attacking stars as Miguel Almiron and Tito Villalba are both out with injury.
Can Atlanta clutch up and win their first trophy or will they open the door and let the Red Bulls steal it away? Let’s find out.
