After Alberth Elis was sent off on a soft red card in the 7th minute, Atlanta United punished a short-handed Houston Dynamo at Mercedes-Benz Stadium Wednesday with a 5-0 win. Manager Frank de Boer made a tactical switch, moving the team into a 3-5-2 and the team reaped the rewards — despite missing Pity Martinez, who started on the bench. Darlington Nagbe opened his account with Five Stripes to open the scoring, with added goals from Brandon Vazquez, Josef Martinez (x2) and Julian Gressel.
