Atlanta United has taken a 1-0 2-0 3-0 4-0 lead at home versus the LA Galaxy, in the first half. Our attack tonight has been clinical from all fronts, while the Galaxy’s defense has been outpaced.

The first goal was finished by Josef Martinez, after a fantastic assist from Yamil Asad. It came after a couple of attempts weren’t able to get past the keeper.

Yamil decided to join the score sheet, finding United’s 2nd goal in the 16th minute. He was able to place a shot on goal after 2 nice saves from Jon Kempin, stopping potential goals from Miguel Almiron and another from Martinez.

Although Kempin stopped a Josef brace, Asad found the back of the net again to notch one of his own. The assist came from Tito Villalba, who was played a great ball into the box by Almiron.

Since the 3rd goal didn’t put him on the score sheet, Almiron decided to grab a goal of his own in the 43rd minute. The goal came with the Galaxy at 10 men following a red card to Jermaine Jones in the 39th. By the way, Asad grabbed another assist in the process.

To be quite honest, this team scores like no other team I’ve ever seen. It’s amazing to watch us with possession in the final third. Unselfish play and quality finishes have given us a huge lead early. Check out the goals below.
