Nearly three weeks have gone by since Atlanta dropped a home result in unappealing fashion, falling 2-1 to the Columbus Crew in their last league match. Now the Five Stripes look to start their trek back up the table, beginning with Inter Miami this afternoon in the friendly (and not burned down) confines of the Benz.
With at least two games in hand and four points to gain, the jump from eleventh over the red line is more than achievable. But has the extended break (and exhibition match) been enough for the team to regroup and do so? Can Atlanta United kick things into gear as we approach the second half of the season and claim a victory today without the help of the suspended Thiago Almada and Gonzalo Pineda?
We’ll find out on a nationally televised ESPN2 broadcast coming your way with a 3:08 PM kickoff from Mercedes-Benz.
