Josef Martinez trolls Andre Blake ahead of MLS Cup Playoffs match

Let the mind games begin.

Ahead of Atlanta United hosting the Philadelphia Union in the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs on Thursday (8 pm ET | ESPN2 in US; TVAS, TSN in Canada), Josef Martinez left a comment under an Andre Blake Instagram post that was something less than fire emojis.

It's not the first time Josef has interacted with Blake on Instagram, having a playful, interesting back-and-forth in August. They were also teammates this past summer at the 2019 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target

Martinez has six goals in six appearances against Blake and Philly, though hopes to add to his tally in the impending Eastern Conference semifinal match.
