The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Doug Roberson attempts to predict Atlanta United’s starting 11 for tonight’s MLS game at Orlando. The TV broadcast on ESPN will start at 8 p.m.

The injury report for the Five Stripes includes Emerson Hyndman, Mo Adams, Jake Mulraney and Franco Ibarra. Also missing are Brad Guzan, Miles Robinson, George Bello and Ezequiel Barco.

Goalkeeper: Alec Kann.

Right fullback: Brooks Lennon.

Centerback: Anton Walkes.

Centerback Alan Franco.

Left fullback: Ronald Hernandez.

Defensive midfielder: Amar Sejdic.

Midfielder: Matheus Rossetto.

Left midfielder: Machop Chol.

Right midfielder: Erik Lopez.

Attacking midfielder: Marcelino Moreno.

Striker: Josef Martinez.

You’ll notice that I didn’t include Santiago Sosa in the 11. I think he needs a break. His play hasn’t been as sharp as it was earlier in the season. This is his first run of extended minutes as a professional. He looks drained.
