Atlanta United vs Nashville SC: Match Thread and How to Watch

A fully open Benz witnesses a southern showdown

MLS: Atlanta United FC at Nashville SC Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

An influx of signings, an inspired performance, and a 2-0 win *on the road **in Seattle** have Atlanta United now in a completely different state than where we last left them in the Leagues Cup. Tonight, it’s the runners up of that tournament, neighboring Nashville SC, who pay a visit fresh off of a week’s rest after coming as close as anyone has to handing Inter Miami a loss in the past month.

The Five Stripes will seek not only to build upon their newfound buzz but put an end to their regional foe’s recent dominance in the series and earn three points out of Nashville after seven winless meetings. Another new signing, Saba Lobjanidze, is expected to feature and add even more firepower to an attack that looked as good as ever against the Sounders. Can Atlanta (in a new look) get it done in front of a fully open Mercedes-Benz Stadium?
