Charlotte FC (Match Guide: LLWLW)
Charlotte's opening 2 games were a disaster. They lost 1-0 to New England Revolution and then 3-1 against Saint Louis City. Prior to the league opener, they had 2 pre-season matches against DC United and Vancouver Whitecaps. They beat DC United 3-2 and the game against Vancouver Whitecaps was cancelled halfway into the match.
In the loss against New England Revolution, Charlotte FC looked brilliant as they had 54% possession and 4 shots on target. Unfortunately they suffered a late goal from Henry Kessler in the 89th minute. And against Saint Louis City, Charlotte FC had 61% possession with 3 shots on target. They opened the scoring in the 25th minute through an Enzo Copetti attempt. But their goal was cancelled out by an own-goal by Bill Tuiloma. Eduard Lowen doubled Saint Louis' lead from the spot in the 50th minute. Joao Klauss 0ut the game to bed in the 71st minute to give Charlotte FC a defeat.
Atlanta United (Form Guide: DWWLD)
Despite playing just 2 matches in the new season, Atlanta United are doing very fine already and they will hope this continues for a long time. Atlanta won San Jose Earthquakes 2-1 in the season opener and then drew 1-1 against Toronto. However, Atlanta had a poor pre-season. In 5 games, they had 1 win, 2 draws and 2 losses. It is a miracle they have had a brilliant start to the season.

Federico Bernadeschi was first to score for Toronto in the 52nd minute before Matheus Rossetto equalized in the 60th minute.
And against San Jose Earthquakes, they had 60% possession, 5 shots on target and 8 corner kicks.
