Atlanta United’s backs are quickly approaching a wall. With only ten matches remaining, the Five Stripes were recently given 25% odds of finishing above the dreaded red line.
So yeah, points are extra valuable right now. Especially at home, where Atlanta will play tonight against none other than the New York Red Bulls, who they have yet to beat in regular season play. Atlanta came close in their last meeting on June 30th, but two late goals upended a Josef Martinez strike to extend NYRB’s unbeaten run. With reinforcements returning from the injury list and flashes of brilliance starting to show more often in the squad, can Atlanta United grab a sorely needed victory tonight?
