MLS: Atlanta United FC at Orlando City SC Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

“Everytime we play them, they play like it’s the game of their lives, and we continue to father them.” - Josef Martinez

Atlanta United walked away from its clash with Orlando City with three points for the third time this season after a 2-1 win at Orlando City Stadium. That makes it a clean sweep of the Lions this season, who remain winless against their rivals in six total matches. Atlanta’s goal-scorers were the most appropriate players you could choose from to score on the night. The first came from Leandro Gonzalez Pirez, who, along with his wife, welcomed a new baby girl just day earlier. The second was scored by your Man of the Match.

Man of the Match: Josef Martinez

Martinez sealed his name in the record books with a delightful winning goal in the 74th minute. What is there left to say about the Venezuelan? Even with the weight of all the expectation of him to score—from fans, broadcasters and the opponent alike—Josef Martinez answers the call. What a historic night and performance from Martinez and his teammates.
