After a 2-week international break, Atlanta United is back under way on Saturday at home against the Columbus Crew.

While it's pretty likely that United will make the MLS Playoffs, in fact they could clinch this weekend, Columbus is on the wrong side of the playoff bubble and they would be eliminated with a loss.

For that reason Atlanta United Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra expects Columbus to throw everything they have at United.

"This is their last chance. If they lose to us they're eliminated from the playoffs so they're going to have that extra fight. That's going to play as a challenge to us. It's a big game for both sides."
