Torrent trusts in his NYCFC team but expects balanced match up with Atlanta United
Here we are. New York City FC is ready to play against Atlanta United in the conference semifinals of the MLS playoffs.
These games will be far from easy, but Dome Torrent is confident: “It will be a completely different game than the one played against Philadelphia Union because it is not a knockout game. It will be very important not to make mistakes, to score goals and not to concede goals.”
However, Atlanta is certainly not an easy opponent: “Yes, they are at the top of the ranking for 22 weeks. They are a great team, they have good qualities. But I feel confident. We are in a good moment and I think it will be a very balanced match. It’s a semi-final, every team will try to pull out the maximum, that’s why I say it will be a balanced match.”
It will be very important play the first match at Yankee Stadium: “Yes, our supporters will be important to push us forward. We will have to make the most of the first game at Yankee Stadium because then it will not be easy in Atlanta. We are stronger in front of our fans, it is not a secret and we must continue to display it”.
