ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The dream of Atlanta United FC to end its winless streak will continue to take a back seat again.
This scenario developed after United FC suffered another defeat at the Mercedes Benz Stadium last July 24.
Playing in front of 67,507 spectators, United FC suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the visiting Columbus Crew SC.
Coming off a 1-1 draw against the home team FC Cincinnati on July 21 at TQL Stadium, United FC started strong in the match.
United FC star striker Josef Martinez who was inserted in the starting roster took the lead in the aggressive attack of the home team.
But despite the aggressive play of the home team, both teams remain scoreless at the end of the first half.
Despite the aggressive defense of the United FC, the Crew was still able to score in the 65 minutes from striker Jonathan Mensah.
United FC tried to fight back and tie the game but their efforts proved futile until the final buzzer sounded.
United FC (2-5-8, 14 points) hopes to get back to its winning ways on Friday when they travel to face Orlando City SC at Exploria Stadium (8:00 p.m., ESPN, Sports Radio 92-9 The Game, La Mejor).
