Follow the preview and play by play of Atlanta United vs. Herediano, Round 16 the second leg of the Concacaf Champions League Final Round.
Fulltime | Atlanta United 4-0 Herediano, Round of 16: Concachampions
Josef Martínez scored the fastest goal in the history of Atlanta United with just 47 seconds into the game. After that goal the MLS team got all the momentum they needed to turn around the result they got in Costa Rica last week.
Atlanta with Pity Martínez and Josef Martínez in charge, who left the game with two goals in his back, proved to be a team that won't be easy to beat. The second goal of the night came from Julian Gressel and the fourth thanks to González Pirez.
Herediano faced a top rival in their home, and even though they tried to match the intensity from the Americans, the team from Costa Rica wasn't able to find the spaces nor the momentum to find their way to the back of the net.
