The Voice of Atlanta United, Mike Conti, joined John and Hugh on The Morning Show to recap the 5 Stripes dominate 4-0 win over their rival, Orlando City. Conti said that Orlando City is “really struggling right now” and that these two teams are a “mismatch” right now. Conti said if anything Orlando deserves more credit by playing hard and not quitting on Saturday compared to the game between these two teams a few weeks back.

Conti went on to talk about the match-up between ATL and FC Dallas. On Dallas: 9-2-5. Conti Dallas defends “really, really well” and will remind people of the way Portland plays. Conti said, “ATL UTD has to burn Dallas in transition.” He went on to say this match won’t be easy and that it will be in the mid-upper 90’s in the match vs. Dallas.

Conti also said that Gressel played very defensively in the win on Saturday. Conti also said he like the decisiveness that Miguel Almiron showed on Saturday.
