Well, hello there. We’re back with some more Atlanta United soccer. For the next to last time in the 2019 MLS Regular Season the Five Stripes take the field in Montreal looking to get back in the win column after a back-breaking loss midweek in New York.
Josef Martinez is likely still out, while Ezequiel Barco should be available off the bench finally. There’s not a ton left to play for other than pride and one playoff spot. It’s highly unlikely that Atlanta can drop below the No. 3 seed they currently sit in. They can still overtake the Philadelphia Union for the second seed but will need some outside help in the last two matches of the season.
As we wait for the playoffs to begin, something to keep an eye on is what exactly is Atlanta’s style and game plan away from home? They will get one home match to begin the postseason. If they get past that, they’ll likely need to win a few games on the road to repeat as champions. What type of mindset can we expect in those matches? The midseason turnaround came off the heels of a transition to a more aggressive style of play. Can that work away from home in the playoffs or will Frank de Boer switch up his tactics to try and get those tough results?
