Kamal Miller comes up big to beat Five Stripes

Atlanta United extended their winless run to four MLS matches with a 2-1 defeat away at CF Montreal on Saturday.

The hosts raced out of the blocks, taking the lead after just four minutes as Kamal Miller headed home at the back post from a beautiful Djordje Mihailovic delivery.

But from there, Atlanta United got a foothold and took the game to Montreal. Goalkeeper Sebastian Breza had to be alert to deny long-range efforts from Marcelino Moreno and Thiago Almada, while the Montreal defense worked hard to keep the Five Stripes at bay.

Atlanta finally made the breakthrough in the 51st minute when Moreno picked up the ball on the far side, skilfully beat Joaquin Torres, and fired a cheeky finish in off the near post.
