Jeff Benedict is joined by Jarrett Smith of SoccerDownHere as they discuss what they took away from Atlanta United's win against the Columbus Crew.

"Atlanta took advantage of the opportunities given to them against Columbus which hasn't always happened," said Smith.

They also touched on getting Miguel Almiron going, Josef Martinez setting the record and supplying a monster assist to Almiron, and how dangerous Atlanta United will be if Almiron goes full speed the way he did on Sunday.

"If Miguel Almiron plays like that, I don't know who beats them right now," said Smith.

They closed up chatting about how the rest of the schedule sets up for the squad, the return of Ezequiel Barco, what it would mean for Atlanta United to not only beat Orlando, but also for Martinez to set the scoring record in that game and going on record with his prediction for the game on Friday against Orlando. 

"I think United will win 3-1," said Smith. "Josef will get one and set the record, and Miguel will get one as well."
