Atlanta United vs. Sounders Live Stream: Game Time, TV Guide, Lineups

It’s probably a stretch to say that the Seattle Sounders and Atlanta United have a real rivalry. Since Atlanta entered the league in 2017, the two teams have only met four times in actual competition. However, it would also be a bit disingenuous to say that there doesn’t seem to be at least the makings of a rivalry.

On the one hand, it seems that the teams are more likely to measure themselves against each other, at least off the field. Atlanta came into the league and immediately surpassed the Sounders in attendance and then won their first MLS Cup in just their sophomore year. Then, after a couple of bad years, Atlanta hired the Sounders’ top assistant coach to lead their team, following the signing of Sounders legend Osvaldo Alonso.

However, neither Gonzalo Pineda nor Alonso were able to turn things around this year. Alonso is among a fairly long list of injuries Atlanta has sustained at key players and the team sits, perhaps predictably, in 12th place in the East, five points off playoff position.

The Sounders, meanwhile, aren’t exactly setting the world on fire either. But they’ve at least moved into playoff position and are still only three points away from No. 4 in the West. However, they are on a three-game losing streak and have won just two of their last seven games overall.

  • Three of the four meetings between the Sounders and Atlanta ended in a draw, although they only played once at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Sounders have the only win of the series, a 2-1 win in 2019.
  • Atlanta has won just 3 of 17 games after a 3-1-1 start to 2022.
  • Pineda has been 14-14-10 since joining Atlanta roughly midway through the 2021 season.
