Just three days removed from a gut punch of a draw at home against Philadelphia, Atlanta United makes their way back onto the pitch, this time in Harrison, New Jersey to play NYC...F...C?
*checks notes* Yep, NYCFC.
So, a midweek game in your opponent’s rival’s stadium with no head coach— that’s pretty MLS-y. On the bright side, though, the Five Stripes won’t have to experience the interesting dimensions of a Yankee Stadium field this go round, taking away one of New York City’s home field advantages that has caused Atlanta plenty of issues in the past. Also, Atlanta United still has the opportunity to get its first win at Red Bull Arena tonight, which would make tonight’s match even MLS-ier.
Your Wednesday soccer fix will come to you through a regional broadcast this time, so it’s time to refresh on how you can find access to Bally Sports Southeast, which still remains to be offered on major streaming services. Those with ESPN+ can workaround this with the Spanish language broadcast shown on their service, which is not blacked out like the English version. For those listening on radio, you can find the feed on Star 94.1, due to the Hawks’ Eastern Conference Final appearance taking precedence on 92.9.
How will the Five Stripes fare with Heinze’s absence? Can they win in New Jersey for the first time in team history? Will they ever learn to hold a 2-0 lead?
Feel free to join in on the match thread in the comments below as we potentially learn the answers to these questions and more as we take in the action from Red Bull Arena together.
