ATLANTA (AP) – Daniel Rios’ first goal of the season just before halftime started Nashville to a 2-0 win over Atlanta United, Nashville’s first road win of the season.

Joe Willis made two saves for his league-leading ninth clean sheet. Willis made a great lead pass in extra time that Randall Leal tracked down and put into an open net, sealing the win in the final minute. Nashville moved into a tie for second place in the Eastern Conference.

Atlanta had its four-match winning streak end.
