New York City FC v Atlanta United FC: Eastern Conference Semifinals - Leg 2
New York and Atlanta will meet in the final MLS game of the season on Sunday.

Atlanta United will entertain New York City FC at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the final game of the MLS season on Sunday (October 9).

The hosts are in 11th place in the Eastern Conference standings. While they're not in the playoffs, Atlanta will finish ninth if they win here. They are winless in their last two games, coming off a 2-1 defeat against New England Revolution. It was their first MLS reverse in roughly a month.

New York, meanwhile, are in the playoffs and can afford to take a breather here. They have seen a late spurt in form, recording consecutive wins. They came from behind to beat Orlando City 2-1 in their last outing.
