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.
