Lions. Tamed. In a game that had everything, the budding rivalry between Atlanta United and Orlando City has reached critical mass following a 2-1 victory on the road for the 5 Stripes. Without Brad Guzan, ATLUTD was forced to bring in backup Alec Kann to fill in. Despite the shower of yellow cards and flops by the likes of Will Johnson (thanks for the memes) OCSC and Ol’ Dom Dwyer Disney just didn’t have what it took to stave off Barco and the rest of United, even with the mountains of trash thrown onto the field. Atlanta is now back on top of the Eastern Conference and lead the Supporters Shield Race. We go through all of the games events as well as our rundown on the rest of the MLS and look forward to Atlanta’s next game against the New York Red Bulls.
