NASHVILLE – Nashville SC has arrived in Major League Soccer, and after a back-and-forth first half, Nashville trails Atlanta United 2-1 in front of a raucous, packed crowd at Nissan Stadium.
Atlanta got on the board first with a lightning-quick counterattack and a goal from Ezequiel Barco in 9' minute. Nashville responded with a goal off of a set piece by defender Walker Zimmerman to even things up. Atlanta grabbed one more goal after a set piece sequence saw Emerson Hyndman rocket a ball into the back of the net to take the lead.
