Match Preview: Atlanta United vs Philadelphia Union

Atlanta United returns to action on Saturday, June 2 when it hosts Philadelphia Union at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The match is scheduled to kick-off at 7:30 p.m. EST and will be televised on FOX Sports Southeast.

Atlanta enters the match at the top of the Supporters’ Shield Standings with 26 points and is coming off a 1-1 draw at New England on Wednesday night. Josef Martínez scored his MLS-leading ninth goal of the season in the first half. Atlanta couldn’t capitalize on a number of chances in the second half, and a late penalty kick goal by Teal Bunbury forced Atlanta to leave Gillette Stadium with one point.

Philadelphia has won three of its last four games, including a 3-1 home win over Chicago Fire on Wednesday night, meaning both teams will be playing on short rest this weekend. Ilsinho opened the scoring for the Union in the first half, while Cory Burke and Borek Dockal each added second-half goals.
