Last week, Atlanta United accomplished what was previously unthinkable: beat the New York Red Bulls in the regular season. Now, we’ll find out if they can achieve an equally insurmountable feat: winning in Yankee Stadium.
The hard fought 1-0 victory at home last week got the Five Stripes back on track and near the top of the Eastern Conference, second only to FC Cincinnati. NYCFC, on the other hand, sit in sixth place with a 2-2-2 record. At home, though, the Pigeons are perfect with two wins thus far. Will Atlanta manage to pick up another result in the tight confines of Yankee Stadium?
