Atlanta United FC 

OUT: Mikey Ambrose (knee), George Bello (hip), Kevin Kratz (calf), Brandon Vazquez (knee), Eric Remedi (head injury/hip) 

Atlanta will be missing multiple pieces from their backline and midfield. Midfielder Eric Remedi is recovering from multiple injuries this week including a head injury. Kevin Kratz is still recovering from a calf injury that kept him on the report last week as well. Forward Brandon Vazquez is working through a knee injury while still waiting to see his first playing minutes of the season.  Homegrown defender George Bello is working through a hip injury for the second week in a row along with defender Mikey Ambrose who is also continuing to work through a knee injury that has kept him on the injury report for the second week. Although Atlanta has multiple players working through less than ideal injuries their overall lineup has a strong roster to build from.
