ATLANTA UNITED THRASH THE LOS ANGELES FOOTBALL CLUB
4-1-0. 12 points. After getting dismantled opening day, the United have now run off 4 wins in a row, after yesterday's route at the Benz of Los Angeles FC. Atlanta sits at #2 in the table in the Eastern Conference, with a matchup against the leaders NYC FC next Sunday at home in Atlanta.
The raucous home crowds have given a boost to the squad, who put on a show for the home faithful, after scoring early and never looking back.
The team is playing with the confidence uncharacteristic of a second-year franchise. They now are expecting to win and expecting great things from themselves, which bodes well for a city and its fan accustomed to falling short of the ultimate prize.
The Cup is the goal. Last year's playoffs ended in heartbreaking fashion, but a foundation was built in 2017. In 2018, based on their hot start, the sky is the limit for Atlanta. Keep it up, 5 Stripes.
