Last weekend, we saw Atlanta United get back into the win column in extraordinary fashion with a Marcelino Moreno header in the dying seconds of the match against CF Montreal. Now, the Five Stripes carry that momentum out west to face the league leading Seattle Sounders on their own turf.
A favorite matchup of the broadcast scheduling overlords, this installment of Atlanta-Seattle will again be on a national feed, being shown live on big FOX. This is the second of three matches Atlanta has been chosen for on the major networks, the others being Miami a few weeks ago and Columbus at home coming up in July.
Getting a win over the unbeaten Sounders will be a tall task for Atlanta, who have yet to claim all three points against their northwestern opponents in three tries. Injuries to Barco, Damm, and Alan Franco will also not be much help. However, as we saw last week, a strong defensive showing and a moment of brilliance can take you a long way in this sport.
