Atlanta United must be wary of what happens after 'new stadium boost'

Atlanta United opened Mercedes-Benz Stadium in dominant fashion, routing FC Dallas in front of more than 45,000 fans.

On Sunday afternoon, Atlanta United officially inaugurated its fantastic new Mercedes-Benz Stadium with an emphatic 3-0 win over FC Dallas. It was a game that also showcased the team’s more celebrated ruthless qualities in building a big lead off the opening goal, rather than its somewhat less celebrated tendency to blow narrow leads through wasteful finishing. Perhaps bear that latter point in mind as the salient detail coming out of this match.
