After ending the road trip on an extremely high note, Atlanta United is back in the Benz tonight to play Orlando City in the third of the clubs’ four meetings this season. A 4-0 rout of D.C. United on Saturday provides plenty of momentum for the Five Stripes coming into this match, but they face a tough task in 3rd-in-the-east Orlando and their 9 match unbeaten run.
The previous game between the two was just over a month ago, where Adam Jahn provided a stoppage time equalizer and an even more memorable celebration in a 1-1 draw down in Florida. A week before, though, Orlando cleanly handled Atlanta in the Benz, getting their first and only win so far in the series. The Five Stripes now get another chance to defend their home turf and set a benchmark for their improvement in the past month.
Can Atlanta keep up their performance against a much better side? Will the second #BarcoWatch finally end? Does Adam Jahn strike again?
We’ll find out this evening, but first hop over to the match preview and lineup prediction, then join us down below in the thread as we discuss the action.
