Injury Report: Atlanta United vs. Philadelphia Union

MLS: New York Red Bulls at Atlanta United FC Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Tata Martino spoke with reporters Friday morning to give us some further insight into the status of certain players for Saturday’s matchup against the Philadelphia Union.

Greg Garza: It was announced earlier in the week by the club that the left back underwent successful surgery on his right shoulder and will be out four to six months.

Tito Villalba: After missing Wednesday’s match against the New England Revolution due to a hyperextended knee, Martino announced that the winger is questionable for tomorrow and will be re-evaluated during today’s training. Villalba’s start to the season has been quite different compared to 2017, as he’s split time as a starter and substitute while dealing with a couple different leg injuries and missing three matches along the way. A frustrating 2018 could continue for the Argentinian if he were to miss his second game in a row. If we don’t see him on Saturday, look for Andrew Carleton and/or Brandon Vazquez to potentially make the bench yet again.
