It only took one goal for Atlanta to win the last time these two clubs played, but it was on a historic goal.
Josef Martínez scored his 100th career goal in this match, at the time the quickest player ever in MLS to score that many goals in 125 games.
For Atlanta, coming into today, the players have to be kicking themselves for their play in October. In August and September, Atlanta really set itself up for a move up the standings and was playing some of the best soccer in the MLS going, 8-2-1 (+12 goal differential). The team was cruising.
Then in October, the team went 1-1-1 with a +1 goal differential with the opportunity to lock in a playoff slot.
Now with four matches left Atlanta has to fight off hungry teams like Miami tonight and New York, which is tied with them in the Eastern Conference.
On the other side, it is plain and simple. Win matches or get eliminated. Miami currently sits five points off the final playoff slot with three matches to go, all against playoff teams or contenders. Everything is on the line tonight.
