Atlanta United (9-3-2)
After a tough stretch of one win in four matches, ATL UTD are back to winning ways. Last weekend they topped the Philadelphia Union in a 3-1 victory powered by a Josef Martinez hat trick and midweek, they kept the ball rolling with another dominant three-goal performance to put them past the Charleston Battery, advancing the club to the 5th round of the 2018 U.S. Open Cup. It’s exactly the results they were looking for as they return to league play this weekend to face their closest competitor at the top of the East.
Snagging the headlines during their current stretch is forward Josef Martinez who earned MLS Player of the Week for a stellar week. Not only did his 5th career MLS hat trick tie an all-time record, but his four goals last week brought his total to 12 on the season, putting him three ahead of the next best in this year’s Golden Boot race. Behind him, the reigning MLS Newcomer of the Year in Miguel Almirón has also been impressive from the number 10 role, spearheading every Atlanta attack, so far recording six assists and just as many goals, playmaking his way into the MLS Team of the Week once again.
Also in the midfield are 2018 additions Darlington Nagbe and Ezequiel Barco who – with their elite technical skill and quickness – have seamlessly integrated into Tata Martino’s free-flowing, possession-oriented system. And the architect’s plans seem to be working out nicely through the first part of the season as Martino’s men have scored a league-leading 30 goals through 14 matches driving them to 29 points at the top of the table. In particular, they’ve been strong on the road, holding the best away record in the league with no losses since the season opener. So the Five Stripes will look to maintain that unbeaten road run in New York City on Saturday.
