From a horrific loss to a dominant win, the pendulum of results has swung mightily for Atlanta United over the past week. Now, with a visit to Soldier Field on the docket, which direction will things progress for the Five Stripes?
Nearly a month ago, Atlanta robbed the Fire of a result at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with a late own goal giving the home side three points after a less than desirable performance on April 22nd. Since then, neither side has seen stellar results, and Chicago have made a change in the managerial position, letting go of Ezra Hendrickson. Results on the road never come easy, though. A win tonight would be massive for Atlanta to not let the momentum from Wednesday’s 4-0 shellacking go to waste.
