Match preview

This'll be just Charlotte FC's seventh match but the second of which that'll see them face local cross-state rivals Atalanta United.

As recently as 13 March, these two met at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with the hosts taking the lead through Josef Martínez's penalty.

Adam Armour equalised with a header, scoring Charlotte's first-ever goal, but it wasn't enough as Jake Mulraney snatched the win in the 96th minute.

This time, Atlanta will make the 246 mile journey east so will they beat their new rivals again?

In all, Gonzalo Pineda's side have made a positive start to the season, accumulating ten points from five games, only losing to Colorado.

Last weekend, the Five Stripes snatched three points away to D.C. United, courtesy of Marcelino Moreno's 94th minute header at Audi Field.

They have now scored in stoppage time in each of their last three fixtures, namely an equaliser against CF Montréal and that aforementioned winner against Charlotte.

These goals account for half of their points so far.

The bad news is that 2018 MVP Josef Martínez went off with a knee injury last weekend and it's currently unknown how long he'll be sidelined for.

Charlotte FC meanwhile were outclassed by Philadelphia Union last weekend, going down 2-0 in Pennsylvania.

Goalkeeper Kristijan Kahlina, who'd been generally excellent since arriving from Ludogorets Razgrad, gifting the Union their second.

However, before this, Miguel Ángel Ramírez's side had enjoyed back-to-back wins, beating New England and Cincinnati, both at home.

So now, returning home, will Queen City be celebrating a third straight success at Bank of America Stadium?
