You have the best offense in the MLS coming to town having only beaten their hosts once ever and facing a defense that has allowed less than a goal a game, but it was a resounding loss 3-0 just this past Sunday. In a second game so close to the first, the losing team typically has the advantage and RBA has been a fortress with NYRB outscoring opponents 12-1 over the last dozen home games, this bodes well.

Before 70,000 5 stripe fans, ATL UTD did not disappoint as they had in EVERY one of their previous meeting as NYRB won those. NY played a different, laid back style, not the ever pressing one that got them to this point. One key, missing piece, Taxi, Kemar Lawrence was missing but he is one of 10 on field players so missing 10% was not the full answer. For two of the goals there was not much to do about, a pass played in from the other side of the field that was as the announcer decscribed as "inch perfect" was just that, had it been played anywhere else this opening goal does not happen.
