ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The quest of Atlanta United FC to end its eight-match winless streak remains a dream.
This scenario developed after Atlanta United FC only came up with a 1-1 draw against the home team FC Cincinnati on July 21 at TQL Stadium.
The visiting United FC and its interim head coach Rob Valentino started strong in the game but their efforts did not yield any goal.
The two teams ended the first half scoreless.
Trying to ignite his team, Valentino inserted star striker Josef Martinez in the second half as a substitute.
Martinez who last played for the team on May 29, tried to uplift his teammates by playing aggressively.
Despite the presence of Martinez, United FC still could not penetrate the tough defense of the home team.
On the 61′ minute, Luciano Acosta scored a goal for Cincinnati FC.
Sensing the danger of losing, United FC equalizes the score at 1-1 after a goal by Ronald Hernandez.
At that juncture, the two-team played toe to toe until the final buzzer sounded.
United FC (2-4-8, 14 points) hopes to re-ignite its winning ways when they host the Columbus Crew SC at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 24 (3:30 p.m., ABC, Sports Radio 92-9 The Game, La Mejor).
