Atlanta United Radio Network play-by-play announcer Mike Conti joined The Morning Show with John and Hugh to talk about the team’s 5-0 shut-out win over LAFC.

Obviously Atlanta United had a lot of success offensively, but you have to credit their defensive play. Brad Guzan didn’t have to do a lot of work because his United defenders were keeping the goal area clean.

This win should give Atlanta United even more confidence because they were able to shut down LAFC, a team that has been on a scoring tirade to start the season.

Mike mentions the young talent on this team, and you could see it with the goal by Romario Williams. He’s still not sure we’ll see Ezequiel Barco against NYFC with how well the team is playing. He could be made available in that 18th spot but Tata Martino will probably not start him.
