The international break is out, and Atlanta United is back in tonight as the Five Stripes kick off a double game week of New York sides at home against the Pigeons of New York City.
Despite a depleted roster which lacks the likes of Giorgos Giakoumakis, Miles Robinson, (probably) Thiago Almada, and more, Atlanta will seek to continue the form left off at following a 3-1 home victory against D.C. United that solidified the club’s position among the playoff contenders. Meanwhile, NYCFC enters the ring winless in their last ten matches in all competitions, picking up a total of four points in their nine MLS matches within that run.
Can a DP-less Atlanta find their way to a result against a historically tough (but recently struggling) opponent? We’ll find out tonight with a 7:39 PM kick, with broadcast coverage provided for free on Apple TV with a valid Apple ID, and radio coverage through 92.9 The Game in English and La Mejor in Spanish.
