Final Whistle Recap and Thoughts
- The first half was simply not good enough. Atlanta United didn’t move the ball well at all, defensively the got penned in their own half for long durations, and didn’t have a clear idea of how to attack.
- The second half was better, but ultimately Josef Martinez was unable to get onto balls in the box where we’ve seen him score before.
- Thiago Almada basically drives this team by himself. When he’s on the field, Atlanta can mount threatening attacks.
