90 minutes are all that stands between Atlanta United and their first-ever appearance in MLS Cup. The Five Stripes hold a commanding 3-0 aggregate lead over the New York Red Bulls in this Eastern Conference Final. Red Bull Arena, a venue that Atlanta hasn’t scored at in two games, awaits the deciding second leg.
The mission is clear. Avoid giving up three goals at a minimum and advance. Score just one goal and that number increases to five. There’s no room for over-confidence or even cockiness. As fans for Atlanta sports we know nothing is finished until the final whistle is blown. Hopefully Tata Martino is drilling that same message in ahead of this one.
Both teams could be at full strength. The only question mark is Kemar Lawrence. The Best XI defender missed out on the first leg and his absence was glaring as Franco Escobar took advantage with a Man of the Match performance.
The talking is done. All that’s left is to finish the job. VAMOS ATL!
