Summary of Score:

9′ Saba Lobjanidze – ATL 1, ORL 0 (Giorgos Giakoumakis)
Nearly ten minutes in, the hosts took the lead when forward Giorgos Giakoumakis found Saba Lobjanidze in between the Orlando line with a through pass. After taking a touch, Lobjanidze calmly shot the ball past the goalkeeper and far post as he moved it towards the endline Pedro Galiste.

70′ Giorgos Giakoumakis – ATL 2, ORL 0 (Brooks Lennon, Saba Lobjanidze)
In the second half, Atlanta extended their lead once more as Giorgos Giakoumakis converted from provider to scorer after Brooks Lennon and Saba Lobjanidze worked together down Atlanta’s right side to penetrate the Lions’ defense. At the top of the 18, Giakoumakis picked up the ball and unleashed a shot that clanged in after bouncing against the bar’s underside.

Head Coach Oscar Pareja:

“Obviously we’re frustrated at not getting the result, but the team that was on the pitch today has a big effort on the game and a commitment to try to do it the best possible way we planned it during the week. But I’m very proud of them. Obviously, the frustration at this point is probably bigger, but we are professionals, and we have to move on. There is a bunch of things that we saw today that left us with the taste that we can bounce back.”
