Seattle Sounders vs. Atlanta United: Player ratings

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

There was a lot to consider when re-watching the Seattle Sounders' disappointing 0-0 draw with Atlanta United on Friday night. On one hand, Atlanta was the highest-scoring team in the league, and Seattle's backline had only one of its usual starters but still earned a clean sheet. On the other hand, while the Sounders created quality chances, they failed to put much of real substance on frame or take advantage of their superior play throughout most of the game.
