For Montreal



“We will try to play the same style, trying to start on the front foot, especially at home and try to be the team that dictates the intensity of the game. Hopefully we can do the same this Saturday, regardless of the opponent. I mean, there’s always this discussion about yes, they are tired, maybe, but also they are in rhythm, they have some games, and they have more connections there because they were on the field more time than us. So for me, I’m waiting for the best Montreal. They will try to come back strong and prove in the league that they’re doing well. They’re a very good team. Last year, they beat us in in their house. So I remember that one. So, yeah, we expect the best Montreal possible.” -- Pineda on hosting Montreal, which played in the Champions League on Wednesday.

“If I could tell the future I’d be a president. I wouldn’t be playing soccer. We’ll see what happens. I think we showed last year that with with everyone giving their best effort and with a lot of hard work, that we were able to get into the playoffs. So this year we’ll see., I think if we can all do that, continue to get better and everyone give their best then then we can be competitive. To win it is a different thing. I don’t know because there’s also some some very good teams. But to be competitive, yes.” Josef Martinez on if Atlanta United can win the MLS Cup
