Atlanta United Radio Network play-by-play voice Mike Conti joined Dukes and Bell Wednesday. 

Carl asked Conti if they would be in a different formation tonight.

“I don’t think there will be a change in the formation," said the soccer commentator. "The 4-3-2-1 is just easier to play in right now according to [manager] Tata [Martino], it gives you more flexibility.”

 When talking about what FC Dallas does well...

“They’ve played eight games against teams above the playoff line and have only won two of them," said Conti. "This will be their toughest challenge of the year, the thing they do well though is they defend extremely well.”

 Mike told the guys why Mikey Ambrose has been so good filling in.

“I think he’s been very intelligent," said Conti. "He always finds himself in the right spot, his linking play with [Miguel] Almiron has been good, his soccer IQ is very high for someone as young as him.”
