Gameday preview: United FC at Atlanta

  • Updated: April 26, 2013 - 9:21 PM


What: Minnesota United FC (1-0-1) at Atlanta (2-0), 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Silverbacks Park.

Preview: Atlanta, the North American Soccer League’s top-scoring team with six goals, matches up with Minnesota, the only NASL team yet to allow a goal. With league-leading Carolina idle this weekend, either Atlanta (with a win or tie) or Minnesota (with a win) can earn at least a share of first place in the standings.

United FC at a glance: Coming off a 2-0 victory against FC Edmonton … Former league MVP Pablo Campos is eligible to play for the first time this season after serving a two-game suspension for a head-butting incident last year … Campos, a talented forward with great size, could help the team jell offensively … Minnesota has not lost at Atlanta since joining the NASL in 2011.

Atlanta at a glance: Stormed back from a 3-1 halftime deficit to beat defending NASL champion Tampa Bay 4-3 on the road last week … Forwards Ruben Luna and Pedro Mendes each scored twice … Second in the standings after finishing seventh in the eight-team NASL last season.
