Recent Form

Both teams earned one point in their last matches with late equalizing goals: Tyler Wolff's second goal of the season in the 86th minute brought Atlanta even with Orlando City at 1-1, while Jozy Altidore scored in the 83rd minute, two minutes after coming off the bench, to even the score 3-3 against Chicago Fire. Atlanta is 5-1-1 at home this season; meanwhile, New England has only won one of it's last four road matches and has conceded six goals.

Series History and Last Meeting

Atlanta has a slight edge over New England in their series history with a record of 5-3-3, but the 5-Stripes have been winless in the last three matches (1D 2L). In the last matchup between the two teams in October of last year, New England earned a 2-1 win at home with the go-ahead goal coming in the 85th minute.

Players To Watch

Brad Guzan (Atlanta United) – The veteran goalkeeper made his return to the starting lineup last week and recorded four saves to keep the 5-Stripes in the match against Orlando. Guzan suffered an MCL injury in early April that was estimated to keep him out for 10-12 weeks, but it took just seven before the big, bald wall returned to a full 90 minutes in goal. If Guzan keeps a clean sheet against New England on Saturday, it will be his 50th shutout for Atlanta.

Noel Buck (New England) – The 18-year-old earned his fourth MLS Team of the Matchday honor this week after he scored the first goal of the match in New England's draw against Chicago. The Homegrown has become a strong presence in the midfield for New England, taking nine shots and averaging an 85% pass accuracy in the past seven matches.

Defender Brooks Lennon on New England:

"They're a great team. You can see the players they have week in and week out on the pitch are MLS veterans, a lot of guys that have a lot of experience. They've had a lot of good results this year, so we're ready and we need to get a result at home."
