How’s y’all’s necks? Atlanta United has gone through some serious whiplash the past couple weeks, and is now primed to test those “back” claims in the best way possible: against Supporters’ Shield leading FC Cincinnati.
The Five Stripes are rocketing back to relevance— and being characterized as a legit threat in the East— in their post-Leagues Cup glow up. The arrivals of Xande Silva, Saba Lobjanidze, and the settling in of Tristan Muyumba, the exponential growth of Thiago Almada, as well all the good a three week reset can do have propelled Atlanta’s form to the highest it’s been in a good while, with a combined scoreline of 6-0 through two matches against some legit teams in Seattle and Nashville. Talk is high, but can they get it done against Cincy on a Wednesday night?
The match will be shown for free on AppleTV’s MLS Season Pass. Local radio coverage is provided in English on 92.9 The Game and in Spanish in La Mejor.
