It's a critical game as Atlanta Untied as they travel to take on N.Y. Red Bulls on Sunday. Both teams are vying for the Supporters' Shield with United currently sitting at No. 1, and Red Bulls at No. 2. 

Atlanta United has already clinched a playoff spot, and a first round bye. With four games left of the regular season, there's still one more goal before the postseason: Winning the Supporters' Shield and home-field thoughout.

Club Vice President and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra joined John and Hugh on Friday to talk about the all-important match up.

"This is what you live for in the sport. The players want to play in these games. The fans love it; it's great for the media. It's kind of for all the marbles. If we go up there and we're able to take care of business, get three-points, that all but wraps up the league for us." 

Plus get ready United supporters, you can expect at least six capacity crowd games next season:
