MLS: Atlanta United in search of consistency


Always in the hunt for the Major League Soccer (MLS) playoffs, Atlanta United suffered a second straight loss on Sunday at Providence Park.

This time it was the Portland Timbers who defeated the Georgia team, winning 2-1.

The Atlanta club has never won two games in a row from the start of the season. In the duel of the day, he certainly did not help his cause by awarding two 'penalties'.

Santiago Moreno scored the first in the 38th minute, then Dairon Asprilla prevented the visitors from believe it by easily threading the needle in the 82nd minute.

Atlanta United star Josef Martinez added his two cents in the 88th minute by redirecting a header from corner, but it was too little, too late.

The losers are five points behind FC Cincinnati and the last place giving access to the post-season tournament in the East.
