Just the one.

MLS: Atlanta United at Columbus Crew SC Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta United defender Franco Escobar has been suspended for one match and fined an undisclosed amount for his transgressions against Columbus in the team’s season finale. Major League Soccer announced the sentence on Saturday.

Assuming Franco remains with the club, he’ll serve the suspension during the first MLS match of 2021.

Our condolences to those around the league expecting him to be banned for life.
