The Five Stripes take the pitch tonight for the second time this week at the new Lower.com Field in Columbus, Ohio, as the search for a win continues into a twelfth straight match.
Wednesday’s hectic match in Montreal saw Atlanta United rebound after going down by two, earning a hard fought draw, but still cannot find an elusive victory. A red card shown to Josef Martinez in the second half of the match after dragging his team level won’t help their chances much against the Crew, but more time back on the pitch for Atlanta’s international players should result in better play as the team looks to avenge Columbus’ win at the Benz just two weeks ago.
This evening’s match will air regionally once again, this time on Bally Sports South, leaving streaming services limited to AT&T TV and ESPN+ for those outside the regional blackout area.
