ATLANTA, GEORGIA—An expected 40,000 home fans are set to watch the home team Atlanta United FC face the red-hot CF Montreal at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday.
The huge fans are set to add energy to the well-rested United team who will have its hand full against the visiting Montreal team, who just won their game against Inter Miami FC 2-0 on Wednesday night in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Coming off a huge win against Miami, Montreal hopes to win its back-to-back road game against the home team United.
United for its part is ready to roll against Montreal since it had a long rest since it salvaged a draw against Miami on May 9.
Despite losing its past four games, United is confident as they face Montreal since they won each of their last three home games against the visitors by a combined score of 8-2.
To beat Montreal, the current leader of the Eastern Conference of Majo League Soccer, Josef Martinez, and his crew need to play big against Montreal.
Knowing how important this game for the team, Gabriel Heinze has a special plan to ensure United can regain back its winning ways and end its losing slump.
To beat Montreal, United’s veteran goalkeeper Brad Guzan, the highest paid goalie in the MLS also needs to have his A-game come game-time.
The odds might be tough, but United and its multitude of fans are confident of victory on Saturday against Montreal.
