On Monday, Manager Frank de Boer gave the media an update on who can and cannot play in Atlanta United’s Round of 16 second leg against Motagua. Let’s get right into with the bad news.
One of the big winter acquisitions for the Five Stripes, Mattheus Rossetto, is still unavailable for this match due to visa issues. He will apparently be unavailable for few more weeks. Manuel Castro is also unavailable for the same reason.
FdB said Rossetto could be 2-3 weeks away from availability. #ATLUTD— Doug Roberson (@DougRobersonAJC) February 24, 2020
In related news, midfielder/wingback Jake Mulraney will be available for selection after getting his paperwork sorted.
On the injury front there is also some good and bad news. George Bello has returned to training after suffering a scary injury in preseason against Birmingham Legion. While he won’t be available for this game, it’s great to see him back so soon.
Edgar Castillo remains out with a broken rib and Miles Robinson is still not training after leaving the club’s last preseason friendly in Mexico. To help the defensive corps, ATL UTD 2 defender Laurence Wyke will be available to play on Tuesday.
With all this in mind, comment below with what you think Atlanta’s lineup will look like in the second leg?
