The Five Stripes aim to shake off their Week 2 worries as they head into match number three against a new opponent from up I-85 later this afternoon, welcoming Charlotte FC in the first ever meeting between the two sides in the North Carolina club’s inaugural season.
A reinforced Atlanta United welcomes back multiple players from injury and/or paperwork delays, including Ozzie Alonso, Santiago Sosa, and Franco Ibarra, and we could potentially see the debut of new Designated Player Thiago Almada in front of a home crowd at Mercedes-Benz Stadium against an expansion side struggling to find its footing.
