Atlanta United is approaching the final stretch of the regular season with just six matches left.

As they head in to the post-season with hopes of repeating as MLS Cup Champions, they have these last few games to round into top form.

Atlanta United Analyst Jason Longshore discusses which part of United's game he feels needs to be top-notch for a deep playoff run.

"Last year you went heavier on defense in the post-season and it paid off," says Longhsore. "You have talent up top and in a tight game you expect to have the one moment you need."

"With this type of attack there's less concern and if they're going to win MLS Cup, the defense needs to continue playing the way that they have."
