Philadelphia Union vs Atlanta United: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Philadelphia Union took everyone by surprise last week when they destroyed Atlanta United on the road. Curtin's team made the best of its chances and put three past the hosts, earning a remarkable difference to make a strong step towards the semifinals.
However, The U's form in the MLS has been quite poor so far. After beginning with a draw against Columbus Crew, they were beaten by Inter Miami and then by New York City FC. Needless to say, they've been clearly performing better in the international competition, and they will try to hold onto their advantage in PPL Park.
The Five Stripes face a challenging situation early in 2021. Heinze's team was shocked and now has to turn up their game quickly to remain alive in the tournament. Atlanta head to this clash after being defeated by New England Revolution in the league. This will be the tenth meeting between both sides. Atlanta United won five games so far, while Philadelphia claimed the victory twice, and they drew in two matches.
