Atlanta United host Real Salt Lake in the upcoming game of the Major League Soccer 2022 season.

The match - a non-conference tie - will be played on Tuesday, July 5 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium with the kick-off scheduled for 5:00 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).

Atlanta United have as many as eight players out with injuries, including former Premier League star Brad Guzan. The sizable number of absentees have played a big role in the team’s disappointing run of results in the ongoing MLS campaign.

Real Salt Lake, on the other hand, will be without the injured trio of Zack Farnsworth (ankle), Damir Kreilach (back), and Bobby Wood (abductor problem). Meanwhile, Bret Halsey and Justen Glad are both doubts for the tie.
