ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The dream of Atlanta United FC to enter the Major League Soccer playoffs this year is on track again.
This scenario developed after the United FC extended their winning streak to four games after a dramatic 2-1 win against the home team D.C. United at Audi Field on August 21.
The win allowed United FC to enter the MLS playoff picture this year.
United FC midfielder Marcelino Moreno scored the game-winner in the 82nd minute, while Josef Martinez scored for the fourth time in five games as the team matched its second-longest win streak in club history.
The visiting United FC is a team on a mission in the game as they played solid in both offense and defense.
United FC veteran goalkeeper Brad Guzan made six saves on the night to preserve the win.
His biggest may have come in the 86th minute when he dove to his right to stop a screaming attempt from second-half substitute Felipe.
United FC (6-6-9, 27 points) hopes to extend their winning streak to five on Saturday when it hosts Nashville SC at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (3:30 p.m., Univision/TUDN, Sports Radio 92-9 The Game, La Mejor).
