Atlanta United's new signings shine in 5-2 triumph over Inter Miami

Atlanta United and their summer signings put on a show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in front of over 71,000 spectators, as Inter Miami sorely missed Lionel Messi in the heavy defeat.

Miami started off on the front foot with Atlanta struggling to maintain possession, finding the opening goal after Dixon Arroyo's long-range striker struck the crossbar that was followed up by a stunning display of individual skill from Leonardo Campana.

But after the initial goal, Atlanta United took over. The Five Stripes went on to score three goals in the span of eight minutes before the end of the first half, with Tristan Muyumba finding the back of the net with a headed effort (his first goal for Atlanta) that struck the post and went in, according to VAR.

Forward Giorgos Giakoumakis scored his 14th goal in his first season on (in only 1,380 minutes played), which is joint-most in the league, while full-back Brooks Lennon notched one goal and provided his ninth assist of the season.
