In quick fashion, Leandro Gonzalez Pirez strikes first for Atlanta United versus FC Dallas in the 14th minute. The goal came off of a nice ball into the box from Almiron, which was headed towards the defender by Villalba. This is Leandro’s first goal this season, but most importantly, it’s also the first in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Nice way to open up the stadium and hopefully it’s the first of many. Definitely a well deserved goal for LGP. Check it out below:
