From a terrifying defeat to a dominant win, the pendulum of results swung mightily Atlanta United in the last week. Now, with a visit to Soldier Field scheduled, where will things go for the Five Stripes?
Nearly a month ago, Atlanta stripped the Fire of a score at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with a late own goal giving the hosts three points after a less than desirable performance on April 22. Since then, neither side has seen outstanding performance, and Chicago has made a management change by firing Ezra Hendrickson. However, results on the road never come easy. A win tonight would be huge for Atlanta not to let the momentum from Wednesday’s 4-0 attack go to waste.
Today’s kick-off at 8:39am will be streamed on Apple TV+ with the MLS Season Pass. Radio coverage is available in English on 92.9 The Game and in Spanish on La Mejor. You can claim a free month of the MLS Season Pass using the link provided in the club’s tweet below:
