Atlanta United will continue its Champions League season at Philadelphia at 8 p.m. Tuesday. The game will be broadcast by FS1.

The Five Stripes carry a 3-0 deficit into the game.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Doug Roberson predicts the starting 11 that manager Gabriel Heinze will select.

It must be offensive-minded because it needs to make up those goals. It’s an immense challenge because Ezequiel Barco and Jurgen Damm aren’t available after leaving Saturday’s 2-1 loss to New England with muscle issues.
