The Five Stripes wrap up a stint of three away matches across all competitions this afternoon, paying a visit to Inter Miami in hopes of steering their way out of the doldrums the squad currently find themselves in.
They’ll do so in front of a national audience on ABC, making this one of the most widely broadcast matches Atlanta will have this year. Being a nationally broadcasted match comes with the drawback of an early kickoff, and so the two teams will have the privilege of playing a 1 PM kick in an open air stadium... in South Florida... in May.
After overcoming the heat, Atlanta United will then need to overcome their previous record against Inter Miami, which so far has not seen a win in Atlanta’s favor. A 1-1 draw, 0-0 draw, and two 2-1 defeats all came within the span of six weeks towards the end of last season. Exorcising 2020’s demons with a win today would be a great way to show the progress of the team and get back to winning ways now that CCL is out the window.
