Atlanta United fell to Columbus Crew SC 2-1 in its 2020 MLS Regular Season finale at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, Ohio on Sunday.


Marcelino Moreno scored his second goal of the season, but Atlanta’s second-half comeback fell short despite out-shooting Columbus 13-9.

“The overwhelming feeling right now is disappointment. We didn’t achieve our goal, so that is disappointing. In terms of the fight the players showed, especially tonight, you can’t ask for more fight and spirit out of the group.” said Stephen Glass. “We can look for more quality at times, but I told the guys in there that we didn’t not make the playoffs based on the performance tonight. There have been some few performances that were not at the level required and that’s what has ultimately cost us a playoff spot. Not the performance tonight.”

Atlanta finishes the 2020 MLS Regular Season with a record of 6-13-4 (22 points). It will have at least one more match this year against Club America in the 2020 Concacaf Champions League, scheduled to resume play Dec. 15-22.
