ATLANTA UNITED FC TOPPLES MINNESOTA DESPITE PLAYING DOWN A MAN
The United got it done. They are now 3-1-0, possessors of a 3-game winning streak, following being routed opening day by Houston. At the 38th minute in Minnesota, already being up 1-0 on an own goal, Atlanta's Gonzalez Pirez was shown off with a red card leaving Atlanta down a man for more than a half.
That didn't matter. Atlanta's gritty squad emerged victorious anyway.
Next up is the Los Angeles Football Club, and it will be at home in front of a raucous, sell-out crowd at the Benz.
