Atlanta is back at Fifth Third Bank Stadium to take on OKC for the fourth and final match-up between the two clubs this season. ATL UTD 2 is coming off a record win on Sunday night against Indy Eleven, where Atlanta won 6-2 at home. With six goals scored, it was the most goals scored in a match in team history. Tyler Wolff scored a hat trick and registered an assist, which was the first hat trick for an ATL UTD 2 player since August of 2019. Additionally, Darwin Matheus, Amadou Macky Diop and David Mejia each netted a goal of their own. With Sunday night’s record win, Atlanta sits in fourth place with 21 points and holds the final playoff spot in the Central Division.
OKC is also coming off a big win, as it defeated Memphis 901 FC 4-1 on Saturday. Aidan Daniels recorded a brace while Villyan Bijev and Tucker Stephenson each scored a goal to secure three points at home. Atlanta and OKC both look to build off these wins in Wednesday night’s match. Going into Wednesday, OKC sits behind Atlanta in fifth place due to a lower goal differential.
