Unhappy with how the teams’ first meeting ended, members of Charlotte FC look for a more favorable conclusion in a Sunday afternoon rematch against visiting Atlanta United.
“Our mindset is that this is a revenge game,” defender Jaylin Lindsey said. “It was something to learn from. We learned a lot from that Atlanta game.”
Host Atlanta won 2-1 with a goal in the 96th minute in the March 13 game.
Atlanta (3-1-1, 10 points) has specialized in late-game goals, posting three of them so far this season.
“We never stop,” said midfielder Jake Mulraney, who scored the decisive goal against Charlotte. “That shows our character and it also shows our quality and our fitness as well to keep going.”
Atlanta United recorded their first shutout of the season by winning 1-0 last weekend at D.C. United.
Charlotte (2-4-0, 6 points), a first-year team, endured the second shutout in franchise history with last week’s 2-0 setback to the Philadelphia Union.
Despite the strong start to the season, injuries are becoming a topic with Atlanta.
The United lost striker Josef Martinez to knee surgery, midfielder Osvaldo Alonso to a torn ACL and midfielder Matheus Rossetto to a hamstring ailment that could keep him out for up to a month.
Martinez sought additional medical advice and missed practice time before undergoing arthroscopic surgery this week, with the team announcing Friday that he’ll miss six to eight weeks. He leads Atlanta in goals (two) and shots (eight).

Still in the early goings of the 2022 Major League Soccer season, one team looks to continue their impressive start to the season, while the league’s newest franchise continues to find their footing, as Atlanta United heads a little north to meet with Charlotte FC on Sunday.
After their disappointing first round exit in last year’s playoffs, Atlanta has started 2022 exactly how they would like. Outside of being clean-sheeted by the Colorado Rapids in their second match of the season, Atlanta has won thrice, including a big win over Sporting Kansas City in the opening weekend. They come into Saturday having gone unbeaten in their last three matches after a 1-0 win over D.C. United last Saturday.
