Atlanta United FC 2-0 Real Salt Lake

After a comfortable 2-0 win over Real Salt Lake, Tata Martino said he was very happy with the performance of his team, playing it’s third game in only eight days. He told reporters the day prior that his reaction to the dramatic win against San Jose was muted by the fact that his team didn’t perform to his standards. That wasn’t the case Saturday, as the Five Stripes put in a complete performance against a Western Conference playoff team. George Bello finally forced his way into the team, making his full debut with Atlanta United and his first appearance in front of the home fans—all 72k+ of them—at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
