Atlanta United looks for #2 Seed and 1st Round Bye with win over Toronto FC
With the final game of the MLS regular season on Sunday, Atlanta United is looking at a matchup with the best team in the MLS, Toronto FC. The match is set to start at 4pm EST.
As the regular season comes to an end, Atlanta United still has a lot to play for. If the season ended today, Atlanta would be the 4th seed in the playoffs, but luckily we have one more match to make a move.
If Atlanta United is able to get a much needed victory over Toronto FC, they would gain 3 points and jump into the 2nd seed position that comes with a 1st round bye! With a few key injuries, ATL would love the extra time to get healthy before getting started in the playoffs.
In ATL’s last matchup with Toronto FC on April 8th, ATL and Toronto ended the contest in a 2-2 draw. Atlanta United knowing that there is a lot on the line, will look to push the pace and keep possession of the ball. After seeing first hand the explosiveness of Toronto, ATL will look to their leading scorer, Josef Martinez, to put the pressure on Toronto to score early.
If Atlanta United is able to contain Toronto’s attack, they will have a good shot at a last minute goal to secure the 3 points and get a home playoff match.
