Slowly however certainly, the items are coming again in play for Atlanta United. Whereas some are nonetheless lacking, the crew’s held its personal, particularly throughout a gritty 2-1 win in opposition to the Montreal Impression on Saturday. With a giant match on Sunday in opposition to the New York Crimson Bulls looming, the crew can’t take its eye off the ball in opposition to a struggling Chicago crew that’s winless in seven matches throughout all competitions (keep in mind what Frank de Boer mentioned about wounded animals?).

With out additional ado: right here’s my predicted lineup for tonight’s match on the Chicago Hearth.

It was tempting for me to choose Brandon Vazquez in favor of Martinez with the expectation that Martinez would come on across the final 30 minutes of the match. That being mentioned, Martinez solely performed about 20 minutes in opposition to Argentina in Copa America on Friday, so he must be good to begin.

So far as Pity Martinez, there have been some shouts for him to return out of the beginning XI in favor of Justin Meram. Pity has underwhelmed since coming within the fold of this crew – I nonetheless suppose he’ll ultimately come good – however I don’t know if he will get benched.

I’d like to know what you suppose within the feedback under.
