ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The Atlanta United FC (3-6-9, 18 points) hopes to increase their winning streak to two when they host the dangerous Los Angeles Football Club at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on August 15.
Coming off a 3-2 win against the home team Columbus Crew at Lower.com Field on August 7, United FC is very confident of its chances against Los Angeles.
To bring down LA, United FC needs to get solid scoring once again from Argentine playmaker Ezequiel Barco who scored two goals in the recent win of his team.
Barco needs to use his speed and ball-handling skills to lead his team to victory against LA.
Aside from Barco, United FC star striker Josef Martinez also need to play solid for his team.
United FC starters George Bello, Miles Robinson, and Brad Guzan also need to play well come game time.
The visiting LA team for its part can avoid an upset if they can contain both Barco and Martinez in this game.
