ATLANTA, GEORGIA –Looks like Gonzalo Pineda is starting to imprint his winning culture to the Atlanta United FC.
On Saturday, the United FC extended their winning streak to three games with a 3-2 win against the visiting D.C. United at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The home team played like a well-oiled machine as they seek every opportunity to score.
Argentinian midfielder Ezequiel Barco was the star for the team in their win by scoring a goal and dishing out one assist.
Barco is having the best season of his Atlanta United career. He’s now scored seven goals and six assists, both a career-best in his fourth season in Atlanta.
Aside from Barco, the other goals were provided by Josef Martinez and George Bello.
Veteran goalkeeper Brad Guzan also played superbly in defense for the team with his timely saves.
Pineda is very happy with the performance of his team and he is confident they can do great things this year.
“A perfect week,” Pineda said.
“Nine points out of nine, scoring 10 goals. I think it was great,” Pineda added.
United FC hopes to make it four straight wins when they visit the dangerous Philadelphia FC on September 23 at the Subaru Park.
