Doug Roberson’s predicted 11 for Atlanta United for Saturday’s MLS game at Columbus:
Goalkeeper Brad Guzan
Right fullback Franco Escobar, making his debut this season.
Centerback Miles Robinson, who will work with Leandro Gonzalez Pirez to better try to deal with Gyasi Zardes.
Centerback Leandro Gonzalez Pirez
Left fullback Brek Shea, because George Bello isn’t healthy.
Defensive midfielder Eric Remedi, whose job will be to try to deny service to Zardes by harassing Federico Higuain.
Midfielder Darlington Nagbe, whose job it will be to get the ball from the back three, or Remedi, and get it to Gressel and Barco as quickly as possible.
Midfielder Julian Gressel
Right forward Hector Villalba
Left forward Ezequiel Barco
Striker Josef Martinez
Yes, I think the team will go to a 4-3-3 because of the return of Escobar
