Fresh off of humbling the hottest team in the league Saturday to the tune of 5-2, the Five Stripes set their sights on a trip to the nation’s capital to take on a fellow playoff contender tonight in D.C. United.
An explosive attacking performance gives Atlanta United plenty of momentum heading into the match against Wayne Rooney’s squad, but D.C. is not to be taken lightly, having posted three clean sheets in three consecutive matches. However, history is in Atlanta’s favor, with the red and black United (as opposed to the black and red one) claiming three points in each of the last five matchups between the two sides, dating all the way back to August of 2021.
The midweek matchup also has the potential to see Saba Lobjanidze, Tristan Muyumba, and Xande Silva all start in the same lineup for the first time, in what would be the strongest XI Atlanta has fielded all year.
This match will stream for free on Apple TV, with only an Apple ID required to sign in and watch on the Apple TV app. Local radio coverage will also be provided in English on 92.9 The Game and in Spanish on La Mejor 1600 AM.
