Atlanta United’s inaugural season has been full of ups and downs. At the halfway point, the Five Stripes are sitting at fourth on the table in the East with 30 points. We’ve seen some dreadful road form and we’ve seen some incredible home form, but all in all, it’s been a great first half for an expansion side. One thing specifically comes to mind when you think about Atlanta United’s performance so far – goals. Lot’s of em. United lead the league in the scoring column, with 39 goals in nineteen games. From Josef Martinez beating keepers to “Peaches” from Almiron, fans have been able to witness some classy finishes from the Five Stripes. Below are four goals that we feel were the best from the first half of the season, which was your favorite?
1st choice: Josef Martinez cheeky finish vs Chicago Fire
2nd choice: Carlos Carmona incredible volley vs NYCFC
3rd choice: Almiron’s skillful peach vs Houston
4th choice: Yamil Asad’s history-making franchise first
