COLUMBUS — Columbus Crew SC hosts Atlanta United FC tonight, Wednesday, June 13, in the first of two regular-season meetings between the clubs in 2018. The match kicks-off at 7:30 p.m. ET and is set to be televised regionally on CW Columbus, Spectrum Sports and BCSN2 featuring Neil Sika, Dwight Burgess and Alex Stec on the call. Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. ET. Post-match coverage is set to follow exclusively on Spectrum Sports in Ohio. The club’s official website, ColumbusCrewSC.com, is set to stream the English-language radio broadcast online as well as host the Spanish-language audio broadcast with Juan Valladares behind the microphone.

 

On Saturday, Crew SC claimed a point in a draw with the New York Red Bulls. Forward Gyasi Zardes opened the scoring with a goal in the 26th minute — his 10th goal of the season. Defender Harrison Afful crossed the ball from the endline to Zardes, who headed it past Red Bull’s goalkeeper Luis Robles. The Red Bulls equalized early in the second half but neither side could find the winner in the 1-1 draw.

Atlanta United is coming off of a similar 1-1 draw, having tied with New York City FC on Saturday afternoon. Atlanta’s Josef Martinez extended his Golden Boot lead with a goal in the 48th minute, giving Atlanta the lead. NYCFC equalized late in the game to salvage a point at home.

The last time Crew SC met with Atlanta United, the Black & Gold eliminated Atlanta from the 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs in a Knockout Round at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The two clubs remained scoreless after 120 minutes of play, with goalkeeper Zack Steffen making eight saves to force the match to a penalty kick shootout. Steffen made another two saves during the shootout, sending the Black & Gold to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Wednesday’s match will be Crew SC’s fourth contest in just 12 days. Columbus is currently unbeaten in nine games, dating back to a draw with the New England Revolution on April 21.
