Following a 3:0 loss in the opening leg left very negative impression about Yankees, where they conceded twice in the final 10 minutes already, Atlanta United will need a goals explosion at Mercedes-Benz Stadium to get back into their Concacaf Champions League quarterfinal tie against Monterrey.
We saw Juventus turn a 0-2 deficit into 3-2 against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. Then again, Atlanta aren’t Juve.
It probably won’t be the biggest crowd at Mercedes-Benz Stadium as Atlanta United host Monterrey in the second leg of their Concacaf Champions League tie. A 3-0 deficit means that Atlanta really don’t have anything to lose this evening, so what will Frank de Boer have in mind? to be honest when ever The Dutch goes his methods doesn't work in modern football. He lasted just a few months in AC Milan. Then was sacked after just a couple of weeks at Crystal Palace.
Atlanta will need a heroic performance from the defense to keep out one of the most potent attacks in North America, as a road goal for the visitors would be yet another tough obstacle to overcome.
Mexican giants Rayados, the side from Monterrey that especially in the past fews has developed into perhaps the strongest team in all of North America. After an impressive performance in front of their home crowd in the first leg, they don't have to rush or open up not necessarily in US.
I consider upcoming fixture as less attractive for potential fan, in past weeks The Five Stripes record very low totals in every aspects including corner kicks, in this mission impossible don't see many as well.
