An important come from behind victory over Inter Miami on Wednesday brings Atlanta United into its final home match of the regular season this evening, welcoming Toronto FC to the Benz in a rematch from the 2-0 away win back on October 16th. The Five Stripes aim to make use of their home field advantage one last time in the chase to lock down a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, where they currently hold the sixth of seven places in the postseason.
There’s a slim possibility that Atlanta can clinch with a result tonight, but will need help from multiple other teams if they are to turn the scenario into reality. The Five Stripes need all three points, an Orlando loss/draw, a Montreal loss/draw, and a D.C. loss/draw to officially lock down a playoff berth. Either way, a win tonight will be big in staving off the red line at a minimum, and at most get closer to hosting in the first round of the playoffs.
Kickoff is scheduled for just after 6 PM, perfectly timed to flip over to the start of the fourth World Series game at full time.
