Atlanta United will be shorthanded against Toronto FC on Wednesday night. Josef Martinez (ligament injury), Ezequiel Barco (knee) and Tito Villalba (knee) have been ruled out.

The Five Stripes shut out Toronto the last time these two teams met on May 8 in a 2-0 win at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. TFC hasn't won a match since. 

With both teams missing starters, however, Voice of Atlanta United, Mike Conti, says it'll be a tougher game than most think.

"Atlanta United is gonna have a tricky match now on the road tomorrow in a park where they have never won; the scene of their worst defeat of the year last year where they had a chance to win the Supporters' Shield," Conti said.

Franco Escobar is also out for Wednesday night's match because he's on yellow card accumulation.
