ATL UTD 2 (6-22-5, 23 points) vs. Phoenix Rising FC (11-16-6, 39 points)
In its last match, ATL UTD 2 defeated LA Galaxy II 3-1 in the squad's first road comeback win of the season. There were stellar performances all around the pitch, which included a brace from Tristan Trager and a first professional goal for Jonantan Villal.
Goalkeeper Vicente Reyes constantly kept his team in the match, making his 10th save of the night in stoppage time on a Remi Cabral header from the edge of the six-yard box.
It was the Chilean international's third 10-save performance of the season, a mark that earned him the ATL UTD 2 single-game save record against San Antonio FC on July 17.
The 18-year-old is set to break another club record, as he's only three saves away from breaking Dylan Castanheira's single-season save record of 84 set in 2019.
