The home side enter the contest on the back of a 1-1 draw against DC United despite being dominated the whole game. An early opener from the visitors ensured that Atlanta left the Audi Field with a point but Gonzalo Pineda will not be satisfied with his side's recent struggles.
Atlanta United have managed to win just a single game in their previous four games with the trashing of Inter Miami being the sole exception. The side have drawn two and lost once as they are seeded in the 6th spot in the Eastern Conference having played two games more than the teams below them.
Montreal CF also had a 1-1 draw in their previous game as they failed to edge past league leaders Cincinnati at home. Winless in four consecutive games, the visitors are desperate for a victory despite playing away from home.
Since the consecutive victories against Toronto and New England Revolution, Montreal have dropped 10 points and have been pushed down to the play-off spot due to their miserable form off-late.
