Gonzalo Pineda picked Defense 3 without Ozzie Alonso and Josef Martinez against Charlotte FC Sunday, but that didn’t work out because the team failed to disrupt the hosts for much of the match. Combine that with a gift from Brad Guzan. You defend a corner kick in the first half and you get a big loss.
Honestly, it wasn’t all bad. Thiago Almada continued to show his impressive quality and Atlanta eventually settled in better shape. Team xG produced more than Charlotte that day and deserved a goal, but the team has some tactical issues to resolve before they host FC Cincinnati on Saturday.
