Minnesota United is in Atlanta for a happy hour matchup with Atlanta United. Remember the Snowpener? Remember the score? Do you really need me to type it out? Anyway, MNUFC is coming off a loss to Houston Dynamo in Houston this weekend, while Atlanta and New England played to a scoreless draw on Saturday.

**grits teeth** Atlanta has already secured a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs, sitting at 3rd in the East with 53 points in 31 matches. The Loons find themselves in 9th place in the Western Conference, with 32 points in 30 matches. Atlanta is undefeated in their last 5 matches, with only one draw in that span. They are undefeated in their new home at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. MNUFC is 2-2-1 in their last 5 matches.
