After an explosive start to the 2022 season, Atlanta United travels out west to take on the Colorado Rapids for the first time since 2019 and the team’s first visit to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park since 2018, a match that featured the likes of Miguel Almiron and Tito Villalba scoring on Tim Howard to earn a 3-0 victory.
Last year’s Western Conference frontrunners return to Colorado after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Carlos Vela and LAFC, hoping to get back into their 2021 form after a tough CCL campaign that saw the team bounced from the competition in penalties by Guatemalan side Comunicaciones FC.
A snowy match awaits the Five Stripes this evening in the Rockies, can they return to their 2017 orange ball glory that brought Josef his first Atlanta hat trick up in Minnesota? How will the side cope with the loss of Luiz Araujo for the near future? Will Dom Dwyer score for a second time?
