Atlanta United 2 will face Saint Louis FC Saturday night at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in the first ever matchup between the two teams. The match is scheduled to kick-off at 7:30 p.m. EST and will be streamed on ESPN+.
ATL UTD 2 returns to action following a week off. In its last outing, Atlanta tied Charlotte Independence 3-3 behind a hat trick from Romario Williams on March 23. Williams netted two goals in the first half, including the fastest goal in team history when he scored just 36 seconds into the match. The Independence stormed back in the second half and took a 3-2 lead with goals from Dominic Oduro, Kevan George and Jorge Herrera. However, Williams completed his hat-trick in the 90+4 minute to equalize and earn Atlanta a draw in its first road match of the season.
Saint Louis FC remained unbeaten when it defeated Charlotte 1-0 on March 30. Saint Louis scored the lone goal in the 5th minute after Bradley Kamdem Fewo made a long run down the left side, beat a pair of defenders and sent a cross into the box where Kyle Greig headed the ball into the top-right corner. Saint Louis presents a 4-0-1 record, 1-0-0 in away matches, and sits atop the Eastern Conference.
Saturday’s match marks the first meeting between ATL UTD 2 and Saint Louis FC.
