ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The home team Atlanta United FC hopes to boost its Major League Soccer Eastern Conference playoff dream when they host the dangerous Inter Miami CF on Wednesday night at the Mercedes Benz Stadium.
Currently, in seventh place in the MLS playoff hunt with 43 points, United FC needs to beat Miami to boost further its playoff chances.
With only four games left on its schedule, United FC needs to play at its best in order to secure a playoff slot and contend for its second MLS title this year.
To beat Miami, United FC must take advantage of its transition chances.
As for the best-attacking teams this year, United FC must strive hard to score during the transition.
The return of Argentine mercurial playmaker Ezequiel Barco from a one-game suspension is a huge boost for United FC since he is one of the best-attacking players on the team this year.
Another step to beat Miami is to stop its two-star players Argentine Higuain brothers, Federico and Gonzalo.
If United FC can stop or limit the performance of the Higuain brothers their chance of a win is very big.
Lastly, in order to win, United FC also needs to close games and take advantage of its home stadium.
Moreover, to win their remaining games, United FC star strikers Josef Martinez and Luiz Araújo must also do their best to score for the team.
Argentine midfielder Marcelino Moreno must also continue to play well for the team.
Defenders Miles Robinson and George Bello must also hold the fork in defense alongside veteran goalie Brad Guzan.
