Two weeks since suffering a 2-0 home defeat to Nashville SC, Atlanta United welcomes another southeastern rival to the Benz, eager to give Gonzalo Pineda the first win of his managerial tenure.
It will be no small task, as the Five Stripes take on second place Orlando City, who are unbeaten against Atlanta in their last six meetings, including the most recent 3-2 rollercoaster back in July. United also will be without key players including Josef Martinez and Miles Robinson due to the recent international window, but the extended break has given Pineda time to improve upon his first outing and prepare for tonight.
The always highly anticipated matchup gets a Friday night spotlight, airing on FS1 to a national audience, while also being streamed through the FOX Sports GO app. Radio coverage will also be available through 92.9 The Game and in Spanish from La Mejor 1600 AM.
