LAFC vs Atlanta United Highlights
LAFC lost by a club record 5-0 to Atlanta United in their inaugural season. And Friday night they found themselves down to the visitors in the first 80 seconds of play.
History would not repeat itself.
LAFC’s potent offense finally turned on the gas in the 33rd minute, and they didn’t let off until the game was done and dusted.
Attacking repeatedly from the right side, Dio, Rossi, Vela, and Atuesta each scored in a span of 11 minutes. Atlanta pulled two goals back, but it wasn’t nearly enough to recover in front of a raucous home crowd.
LAFC have now gone 10 points clear in the Supporter’s Shield standings. They’re on pace to smash the record points for an MLS season. And Carlos Vela is the league leading scorer with 22 goals.
LAFC have an eight day layoff before heading to New England to play the Revs.
