After a disappointing end to their win streak, Atlanta United was able to get a tiny bit of much-needed rest before heading back out on the road for their final match of a three-match road trip. The Five Stripes are in for another long journey as they head to Sandy, Utah to take on Real Salt Lake.
Despite the bitter result in New Jersey, Atlanta are still sitting pretty in the Eastern conference at 4th, just four points off the top team, Philadelphia Union. All things considered, it’s hard to complain about that general outlook.
On the other side of the equation, RSL are coming off of a convincing 3-0 win over Toronto FC at home. This will not be an easy task for Frank de Boer’s side. Yes, they got two days of rest earlier this week, but you can bet that the previous mileage of this trip and all of the minutes piling up will cause for some heavy legs.
Atlanta face three more matches until they encounter a huge gap in their schedule. This stretch has been brutal, there’s no doubt. If they can rebound and get a few more wins before the break, it should set them up for a run at the top of the conference heading into July.
