The 5 Stripes are only one win away from defending their MLS Cup title, and Toronto FC is standing in their way. The two teams will meet next Wednesday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

"This will be the toughest playoff game Atlanta United has played in its history," Voice of United, Mike Conti, said. 

"Unlike last year with Red Bulls, Toronto has been here before and they've won it...Toronto's got a group of winners. Atlanta United's got a group of winners. It's going to be interesting. I think it's going to be very, very tough."
