Ever since the Josef Martinez saga came to a close back in January, this has been the matchup circled on the calendar. The face of Atlanta United, bought out and now with conference rival Inter Miami, will line up opposite of the club who crowned him King.
On top of that, the Five Stripes are seeking to resolve a run of poor form that has hampered performances in recent weeks, most recently in a 3-1 defeat in Nashville last weekend. Giorgos Giakoumakis is still sidelined with a hamstring injury, and Franco Ibarra is undergoing concussion protocol, so neither are available for tonight. Miami have their own slew of injuries to manage, though, and Josef himself is scoreless through ten matches, even starting the last couple from the bench.
