Colorado at Atlanta: How to watch on TV, preview and more

Saturday, 5 p.m., Altitude, 950 AM, 87.7 FM

Spotlight on Miguel Almiron: Typically used in the No. 10 position, Almiron leads Atlanta in scoring with eight goals and is second in assists (five). Very fast with great vision, he is a high-priced “designated player” who previously played professionally in his native Paraguay and Argentina. Only 23 years old, he made 26 appearances for Paraguay’s under-17 and under-20 teams and has made 10 appearances with the senior national team since 2015.

United: A first-year expansion franchise, Atlanta leads the league in scoring with 32 goals in 16 games. … United (6-7-3) has scored first in 13 games and has won its last three at home, where it stands 4-2-0 and has sold out every game. … It has the league’s best shot-conversion rate (17.8 percent). … Like Colorado, United will be playing on two days rest, having lost 2-1 at DC United on Wednesday. Jeff Larentowicz, who played in the Rapids’ midfield with Colorado coach Pablo Mastroeni when the Rapids won the 2010 MLS Cup, is a regular in Atlanta’s midfield.

Rapids: Key midfielder Mohammed Saeid and striker Kevin Doyle were injured in Wednesday’s 3-1 home loss to Los Angeles. It looked initially as if Saeid’s knee injury could be a bad one (“It doesn’t look good,” Mastroeni said then) but on Friday a Rapids spokesman said it is “not serious.” He is out for this game, though. Doyle, who suffered a hand injury, made the trip and will be available. … Colorado has put more shots on goal in the last three games (18) than it did in the previous seven (16). … This game is the first of four in 11 days. From Atlanta the Rapids go straight to Dallas, where they will play FC Dallas on Tuesday in a U.S. Open Cup game. Then they come home for games against Houston (July 1) and Seattle (July 4). After the Fourth of July fireworks game they will be off until July 18.
