The has only two wins in their last 12 matches and if they keep on this path, it will be very unlikely to see them on the Playoffs. They are on the last playoff spot, but with the same points that Chicago Fire and only one more than Inter Miami. Although, the return of two stars makes the fans dream about a win against Toronto.

After a five-match injury absence the forward Erik Cubo Torres will return. The logical option is to bench Adam Jahn but Stephen Glass might choose to put them together on the pitch and instead bench Jon Gallagher or Manuel Castro. Maybe the coach even decides to take out both of them.

There is a reason to think that all the forwards are going to be replaced. For this match, we are expected to see the new Designated Player Marcelino Moreno, the Argentinian came from Lanus and is set to become one of the MLS stars. He is a really versatile player that can play as a winger or as a midfielder.

Besides, there is another star that will return and is Jurgen Damm. The Mexican winger play some minutes in the draw against Inter Miami and now is ready to be a starter. If Atlanta are going to make the postseason, Moreno, Damm and Torres will likely have to be the reason why.
