Final Whistle Reaction
Instead of what was supposed to be a relatively routine win, Atlanta United fans got a dose of deja vu — dropping points in the waning moments after failing to capitalize on a dominant performance.
Atlanta United created 2.59 expected goals, but only got on the scoresheet once in the match. It would prove not to be enough to win, and it shakes up the playoff picture. As of this writing, Atlanta is tied on points with DC United and Orlando City for the 5,6 and 7 spots in the Eastern Conference.
Luiz Araujo scored Atlanta’s only goal in the 15th minute, but credit should go to the whole squad for the press that created this.
