Atlanta United was drawn into Group E two weeks ago along with Cincinnati, Columbus, and New York Red Bulls. 

Most analysts think this group will come down to the Red Bulls against United with a chance of both teams moving through.

While it would have been ideal for Atlanta United and the New York Red Bulls to meet up on the final matchday, that's not how it was set up when the schedule was released Wednesday.

With the two favorites meeting up in the first match of group play, the result of that game should go a long way to determining who wins Group E.
