Atlanta United remain in playoff contention after Miami draw


Atlanta United was still in the game at the half because of stellar play of centerbacks Miles Robinson and Anton Walkes against Gonzalo Higuain.


In previous years he’s played alongside Parky (Michael Parkhurst) and Leo (Leandro Gonzalez Pirez) a good bit.


Glass said he didn’t give Robinson any special instructions for defending Higuain, who has played at River Plate, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Juventus and Napoli, among others.


He cut back his dribble, which sent Nicolas Figal sliding by, and squared the ball to Mulraney, who came on in the 70th minute, for the easy goal.


Atlanta United could take advantage of the break to possibly get Barco back as well help Marcelino Moreno’s adjustment into the team.


Wednesday’s game was George Bello’s 10th consecutive start, the eighth for Jeff Larentowicz and the sixth for Brooks Lennon and Emerson Hyndman.
