The New England Revolution fell 2-1 to Atlanta United FC on Saturday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

“I thought it played out exactly as we thought. The first 15 minutes they always come out really fast and we wanted to try to stay compact. I don’t think our back four, in the first five minutes, got the depth quite right and didn’t drop off. At the time that they scored the goal, things were getting a little bit more comfortable for us. It’s the story of the season, to be honest with you,” said Revolution head coach Brad Friedel after the game.

The Revolution fall to 8-12-11 on the season.

However, the Revolution were not able to get another goal in stoppage time.
