MOUTHS OF THE SOUTH LIVE
Atlanta United hit the road once again for a midweek MLS clash with the Chicago Fire. The Five Stripes head up to Seatgeek Stadium (yes, that’s really what it’s called) to start yet another double-match week.
Frank de Boer’s side are coming off of a 2-1 win at home over the Montreal Impact and could be getting a boost with the return of Josef Martinez. It is not known if the reigning MVP and Golden Boot winner will travel with the team or not, but he has returned to training after missing the better part of a month on international duty.
A robust 10 points separate these two teams in the standings with Atlanta coming into play sitting in fourth in the conference on 29 points and Chicago on 19 with just four wins on the season. The Fire haven’t won since a 2-0 home win over Minnesota United all the way back on May 11.
Lineup decisions for De Boer will be interesting in this one, especially with a critical home match against the New York Red Bulls coming up on Sunday. Will the Dutchman throw caution to the wind and go all out for the three points tonight or will he continue to trot out some depth and hope for a good result?
