Atlanta United 2, Orlando City 1: Man of the match

My choice for Atlanta United’s man of the match from Sunday’s 2-1 win against Orlando City:

GREG GARZA

Fullback

Why? His run into the penalty box forced Orlando City’s Cristian Higuita to pull him down, which resulted in a penalty kick that was converted by Josef Martinez for the game’s first goal.

Garza then added an assist on Ezequiel Barco’s goal that gave Atlanta United a 2-0 lead. It was Garza’s third assist this season.
