Atlanta United form and stats

Seven points from three Major League Soccer home games is a great start for Atlanta United, who are hoping to build on that form here at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Robinson served one assist, hit two key passes and won 6 of 7 duels.

1-1 away at Seattle Sounders before that.
