Atlanta United's home opener was a successful one as they took out Cincinnati 2-1.

The 17's were out in full force and the players responded accordingly.

There was some real concern heading into the game with Josef Martinez out where the scoring would come from, and similar to the win in Nashville it came from one expected source and one unexpected one.

Right now they're finding scoring from Hyndman," says John Fricke. "As the season progresses this team can actually be pretty good."

With Josef being out it's giving guys other opportunities to show what they could do," says Hugh Douglas. "It felt like Pity felt a little more comfortable and showed glimpses of being the guy we wanted him to be when he came over here last year."
