New York City FC vs Atlanta United: Preview, team news, broadcast listings - November 4

November 4, 2018 By Michelle Bonsu
Catch New York City FC vs Atlanta United at 19:30 EST on Fox Sports 1. LiveSoccerTV's match preview provides team news and match facts for the first leg of the MLS Cup semi's clash between Atlanta United and NYC FC on November 4th.

How they got here: New York City vs Atlanta United

New York City FC are into the Eastern Conference semi-finals for the third straight year thanks to a 3-1 comprehensive win over Philadelphia Union on Wednesday, and again get to play at Yankee Stadium as they take on Atlanta United on Sunday evening. That made it back-to-back wins for NYC FC against Union, interestingly by the exact same score-line, and they again will be hoping that they can use their home-pitch advantage to full effect as they face Atlanta United in what could be their trickiest match to date.

Atlanta United, meanwhile, had a very strong campaign, but a heavy 4-1 loss on Decision Day to Toronto FC spoiled their chance to finish top of the table in the Eastern Conference. Nonetheless, finishing as runners-up made sure that they did not have to navigate their way through a tricky play-off, and instead could sit back and await who their next opponent would be in the semi-finals. They will, however, be hoping to rebound from that very disappointing end to the season and will be facing an opponent who have been very solid in their showings at Yankee Stadium all season.
