As far as Decision Days go, this one’s pretty tame for Atlanta United. The Five Stripes know their fate as a lower Round One seed in the playoffs, something certainly not taken for granted, and FC Cincinnati has long since locked up the Supporters’ Shield (and naturally a first round bye).
It’s not all for nothing, though, as the day’s results will determine Atlanta’s best-of-three matchup for the upcoming postseason campaign. Orlando, Columbus, or Philadelphia await, we’ll see who comes out of the wringer at the end of 90 minutes.
Decision Day kicks off across the Eastern Conference at 6:09 PM ET with this match being free to watch on Apple TV with an Apple ID. Radio coverage is provided in English on 92.9 The Game and in Spanish through La Mejor.
