Final Whistle Quick Thoughts
- No matter the result, it was a very good performance by Atlanta United in one of the toughest away venues in MLS. It’s a performance that will net positive results more often than not if replicated throughout the season.
- The first half was heartbreaking with how well the Five Stripes started the match. If they had convert any of the great chances they created early on we’re looking at a completely different match.
- Franco Ibarra’s red card obviously changed the way things were going but he was putting in another fantastic performance and was a bit unfortunate to see red on a tough challenge.
- Caleb Wiley’s second consecutive strong showing at left back has to be encouraging for all to see. His defensive awareness has vastly improved since last season.
