Team news & rosters

PositionAtlanta roster
Goalkeepers Guzan, Shuttleworth, Castanheira
Defenders Hernandez, DeJohn, Franco, Lennon, Robinson, Gutman, Wiley, Washington, Campbell, Ambrose, McFadden
Midfielders Sosa, Almada, Rossetto, Moreno, Sejdic, Ibarra, Alonso, Hyndman, Mulraney, Centeno

Forwards

Dwyer, Martinez, Araujo, Wolff, Conway

A 3-0 loss to Colorado last time out made for a tough experience, and a red card for Miles Robinson certainly did not help matters for Atlanta.

But Gonzalo Pineda knows his side can bounce back and he'll expect them to do so against the MLS new boys this weekend, even if they are nursing a few injury doubts already this term.

Predicted Atlanta starting XI: Guzan; Hernandez, Franco, DeJohn, Gutman; Rossetto, Campbell, Sejdic; Conway, Martinez, Wolff.

PositionCharlotte roster
Goalkeepers Kahlina, Sisniega, Zendejas, Marks
Defenders Sobocinski, Armour, Corujo, Walkes, Makoun, Fuchs, Lindsey, Afful, Mora, Santos
Midfielders Ruiz, Alcivar, Bronico, Bender, Hegardt, Franco, Jones
Forwards Mello, Oritz, Swiderski, Gaines, Reyna

A record MLS regular season crowd for their debut home game wasn't enough to steer Miguel Angel Ramirez and company to a first win - and it won't get any easier for them on the road in Georgia.

They'll take pride from pushing LA Galaxy almost all the way, however, and changes will likely be minimal for the third game of their debut season.

Predicted Charlotte starting XI: Kahlina; Corujo, Makoun, Fuchs; Lindsey, Franco, Bronico, Ortiz, Mora; Swiderski, Reyna.
