The Five Stripes venture back to the state of Ohio tonight after suffering a midweek 2-1 defeat to the Red Bulls on their return home, a dampening loss on whatever positive momentum Atlanta held coming into the match. They’ll be tasked with the sixth place Columbus Crew this time, and with their dangerous attacking options and Atlanta United’s road form, optimism is certainly scarce.
We’ll see if Atlanta can hone in on the “win at all cost” mentality Gonzalo Pineda has emphasized and grab some sorely needed points to climb out of the basement of the Eastern Conference with kickoff set for 5:35 PM ET broadcasting nationally on FS1. Before then, remember to check out our match preview and predicted lineups, then jump back here and into the match thread below to chime in on all the happenings of the evening.
