  • With his start, Brooks Lennon will tie Miles Robinson and Josef Martínez for the second-most regular season starts all-time in club history. Goalkeeper Brad Guzan ranks No. 1.
  • Edwin Mosquera appears in the starting XI for the first time this season and the first time since Atlanta United's 5-2 win over Inter Miami CF on September 16, 2023.
  • It's the second straight appearance in Atlanta's starting XI for striker Daniel Ríos. He scored in his club debut last weekend in the 2-2 draw with undefeated Philadelphia Union. Ríos answered 17 questions for supporters to get to know him better, which you can read here.
  • Caleb Wiley is coming off earning his first appearance of the year on MLS Team of the Matchday for this long-range golazo.
  • Noah Cobb and Luis Abram pair up as starting center backs for the second consecutive week. Atlanta United has not had more than three matches in 2024 with the same center back pairing. Entering Saturday, the team has given up the fewest goals in MLS and is fourth best in expected goals per shot against opponent.
