A couple games of upswing and promise were cut down in an abrupt manner last weekend in the Five Stripes’ last outing in Los Angeles, where the hosting Galaxy collected a 2-0 win.
After picking themselves back up, Atlanta now hits the road again to the Windy City, where things admittedly won’t be getting any easier. Atlanta United’s active winless streak on the road is up to eight games, six of those being losses. Meanwhile, Chicago has hit an upswing in form, earning three consecutive victories coming into tonight. However, the Five Stripes can claim to have beaten this Fire team, winning 4-1 at home back in May thanks to a Ronaldo Cisneros hat trick. Another win against Chicago tonight could potentially shoot Atlanta four spots up the table to eighth, just under the playoff line.
