Atlanta United gets a big win over Saint Louis FC moving forward to the U.S Open Cup semifinals for the first time.

Atlanta United analyst, Jason Longshore, was wondering when Atlanta United would change up their look. Frank De Boer went with Emerson Hydman, Eric Remedi, and Darlington Nagbe.

Emerson Hydman makes his return debut and Jason gives him praise for performance tonight, “(He) not just a number 10, but can play every central midfield role that you need in this team… Emmerson is comfortable creating. Very involved in the attack, very involved first through defense- take the ball away, and pick out Pity Martinez quickly,” says Jason.

There has been a heavy rival with Atlanta United and the New York Red Bulls but many fans are looking forward to the semifinal rivalry with Orlando City FC.
