ATLANTA, GA- There’s a lot to be settled on Decision Day when Atlanta host newly crowned champions Toronto FC.

After defeating rivals Montreal 1-0 in their last home game of the season, TFC are looking to stop Atlanta from getting a top two spot which would give them a bye to the Conference Semi Finals.

If Atlanta win, they will need Columbus to beat NYCFC in order for the expansion side to finish second.

Atlanta are coming off a 0-0 tie away to the New York Red Bulls, a side they could possibly play next week.

Miguel Almiron is questionable, but if he is even the slightest bit ready to play, he will get some minutes ahead of the playoffs. Gonzalez Pirez is suspended with yellow card accumulation. Greg Garza is out injured.

TFC have no new injury worries or suspensions and will have their full squad available before playoffs.

The last meeting between the sides ended 2-2 at BMO Field at the beginning of the season.

Kickoff is at 4:00pm and will be televised on TSN4.

Projected lineups

Atlanta United: Guzan; Ambrose, Parkhurt, Laurentowicz, Walkes; Carmona, Kratz; Villalba, Almidón, Asad; Martinez.

Toronto FC: Bono; Hagglund, Moor, Mavinga; Hasler, Vazquez, Bradley, Delgado, Morrow; Giovinco, Altidore.
