ATL UTD 2 begins a stretch of three consecutive road games Sunday night at Bethlehem Steel FC. Atlanta and Bethlehem met twice last season with each team picking up a win in its home stadium. Last weekend Atlanta fell 2-0 to Nashville SC after allowing a pair of goals in the first half which put the match out of reach.
Bethlehem is coming off a 3-3 draw against Loudoun United at Audi Field on May 3. Michee Ngalina scored two goals just a minute a part in the first half, but Kyle Murphy responded with a brace of his own to tie the match. Faris Moumbagna scored a penalty kick in the second half to put Bethlehem up, but Loudoun's Orlando Sinclair equalized in stoppage time to split the points. Steel FC and Atlanta are both winless in their last three matches heading into Sunday's game. ATL UTD 2 is 1-1-1 on the road this season.
