The Five Stripes take to the Toyota Stadium pitch tonight against FC Dallas for surprisingly only the second time in club history, their last visit coming on July 4th... of 2018.
Ah, 2018. A lot’s happened and changed since Atlanta’s year of glory, a glory that the team almost seemed to vaguely recapture for the two post-Leagues Cup victories over the past couple weeks before being brought back to Earth by the best team in the league, FC Cincinnati, on Wednesday. Still, Atlanta stuck with them (and held a lead...for a bit) and ended up with a close 2-1 loss after a late collapse. A home loss is never good, but there are plenty of positive takeaways to be had.
Will tonight’s matchup with FC Dallas continue to showcase an improved Atlanta United, or will a midweek loss make their sudden burst of form a flash in the pan? We’ll find out with an 8:39 PM ET kickoff set to air on Apple TV+ as a part of MLS Season Pass. English radio is provided on 92.9 The Game, and in Spanish on La Mejor.
