Match Preview


Darlington Nagbe Atlanta United

Atlanta United are looking to follow up their MLS Cup win with a CONCACAF Champions League triumph at the first time of asking but they need a miracle to turn things around against Monterrey.

Atlanta have it all to do after losing 3-0 in the first leg but stranger things have happened.

Monterrey are three-time winners of this competition winning three in a row from 2011 to 2013 whilst this is Atlanta's first appearance in the competition and they are looking to become the first MLS side to win it since the start of the modern format.

The Mexican side are packed full of talent which was certainly on show when they demolished the current MLS Champions in the first leg.

Atlanta are missing Miguel Almiron more than they would have hoped and are relying on Josef Martinez and 'Pity' Martinez to be the difference-makers in this fixture.

The Venezuelan striker scored 31 goals in MLS last season and will have to be at his very best if Atlanta are to progress any further in this competition.
