ATLANTA (AP) – Miguel Almiron is battling a left hamstring injury with Atlanta United trying to clinch the best regular-season record in Major League Soccer.

The star midfielder is listed as week-to-week, putting in doubt his status for United's final two games. He also will miss a chance play for his national team in Paraguay during FIFA's international window, remaining in Atlanta to rehabilitate his injury.

The team said Tuesday that Almiron was hurt during last Saturday's 2-1 win over New England. The victory kept United one point ahead of New York Red Bulls in the race for MLS Supporters' Shield, which assures a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League.

After this week's international break, United hosts Chicago in its final regular-season home game Oct. 21 before the closing the season at Toronto a week later.

Atlanta is assured a first-round bye in the MLS playoffs, giving Almiron additional time to recover.
