Earlier this week, the Five Stripes evened the series at one with a 4-2 victory at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, setting the stage for this decisive match.

It is back to square one for Wilfred Nancy’s side, who have not lost successive MLS matches since May, when they were beaten by FC Cincinnati (3-2) and Nashville SC (3-1).

The Crew will be relieved to know that this decisive game takes place at Lower.com Field, where they are unbeaten in their last 13 league matches, including a 2-0 victory over Atlanta in the opening game of this series.

That victory at the beginning of November was the first-ever playoff game at Lower.com Field, where Columbus have been a lot tidier defensively, posting seven clean sheets at home in the 2023 regular campaign.

The Crew were the highest-scoring team in the league during the MLS season (67 goals), scoring in each of their home games, netting multiple times on 14 occasions in the regular campaign and playoffs.

Nancy’s side have never lost a domestic game all season when leading at the half, coming away with a victory in 10 of those 11 contests.

Once again, the Atlanta attack was their saving grace at home on Wednesday, as this team have scored three or more goals eight times at Mercedes-Benz Stadium during the 2023 domestic campaign.

However, Atlanta will enter this contest on a five-game winless run on the road against MLS opponents, while they have not succeeded away from home in the playoffs since 2018 (1-0 over New York City FC).

The Five Stripes have conceded at least one goal domestically in 14 away matches in the regular season and playoffs this year, allowing multiple strikes 11 times.

Gonzalo Pineda’s side have lost each of their playoff games in which they have conceded the opening goal, while only suffering one defeat in the post-season when drawing first blood (2-1 against Toronto in 2019).

Should they emerge victorious on Sunday, it would be the first time they progress beyond the opening round of the playoffs since making it to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2019 before losing to Toronto (2-1).

Columbus Crew vs. Atlanta United Head to head

In the 20 previous meetings between these two teams, Columbus Crew have claimed 11 victories while Atlanta United have wo seven, and they have drawn in two. Atlanta have scored 29 goals and conceded 35 in the process.
