Updates

90’+3 There’s the full time whistle. The 2019 season comes to an end in Atlanta. The goals just weren’t there tonight.

83’ Wooten now into the game. He came in for Wagner.

80’ Josef connects off a counter attack. McKenzie got beat to the ball in the air and Josef’s shot rattled off the post and went in. Gaddis started the counter with a cross to no one near the top of the box.

78’ Fabian with another shot that misses wide of the far post. So close.

76’ Fabian played into space but his shot goes right at Guzan

70’ Josef in on goal again but Gaddis able to get a piece of it and it goes out for a corner

66’ Fabian into the game for Santos

61’ Nervy moments in the back for the Union but Andre Blake steps up with a pair of saves and a Josef chance in the box goes wide of the post.

52’ Ilsinho into the game for Aaronson.

46’ Second half underway

45’+2 There’s the halftime whistle. The Union down 1-0 at the break. Where have we seen that before?

41’ Santos goes down in the box but there isn’t much there

34’ Bedoya goes in the book for a foul and will miss the next match

17’ Aaronson with a huge chance, but Guzan comes up with a big save to keep it 1-0 Atlanta. Good movement from the Union there and Santos did well combining with Aaronson.

11’ Julian Gressel puts Atlanta in front with a chip over Andre Blake, who came way off his line to try to close him down in the box. Not sure what the defense or Blake was doing there.

1’ We’re underway
