STREAMING: MLS LIVE on ESPN+ (US), on DAZN (Canada)

Atlanta United are looking to bounce back from a disappointing 1-1 draw against FC Cincinnati, which spoiled the party of a home opener, against a Philadelphia Union side also seeking their first win of the 2019 MLS season. 

Josef Martinez got the party started early with his first goal of the season, but Roland Lamah leveled late for FC Cincy as the MLS Cup champs were forced to share the points with the expansion side. The Union lost 2-0 at Sporting Kansas City in Week 2 with Marco Fabian first having his penalty kick saved and then being sent off on a straight red card for violent conduct.
