Atlanta United has settled right into their new home offensively with 17 goals over their four games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. But their defensive performance has gone under the radar, with Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Galaxy the team's third clean sheet in the stadium so far. That was the Five Stripes' eighth clean sheet of the season, meaning another $2,000 will be donated to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation for autism research. In partnership with Children’s, the club has now raised a total of $16,000 this season and will hope to add to that total as they continue the journey through their inaugural season.
