Atlanta United faced Leones Negros in Mexico last night and the game resulted in a sluggish 0-0 draw eventually won by the home team in PK's.

This friendly was supposed to be a warmup for United's first CONCACAF Champions League game next week against Motagua in Honduras, however the performance and result left quite a bit to be desired.

Will Palaszczuk and Hugh Douglas discuss how United looks and why they will be better when the games matter.

"When you know it's a friendly and it's not that serious, you tend to approach it a lot different than you would if the game was on the line," says Hugh. "You might go into in with certain aspects of the game you want to work on and maybe that's the way United approached it as well.

They might have had some tape on the team they played last night, but a lot of the game is feeling out," explains Will. "Trying to get used to playing at altitude and maybe not wanting to show a lot."
