Atlanta United is the most back they’ve been yet | FIVE STRIPE FINAL

This is not a drill

MLS: D.C. United at Atlanta United FC John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Everybody put your seatbelts on and tray tables up because Atlanta United is well and truly taking flight after Saturday’s 3-2 win over D.C. United. And honestly.... it wasn’t as close as the score would suggest! D.C. United manager Hernan Losada even said after the game that the Five Stripes would be one of the main challengers for MLS Cup.

All in all, the win capped the perfect week for Atlanta as Gonzalo Pineda’s team picked up all 9 points, scoring 10 goals across the three games. Sam and Joe discuss all the action on this week’s episode of Five Stripe Final.
