Atlanta went up early, with three goals in seven minutes, including a brace from Yamil Asad. The Galaxy did not do themselves any favors when Jermaine Jones was booked soon after for violent conduct in the 39th minute.
Unlike their 7-0 victory over New England, ATL settled into a controlled possession game in the second half, and kept a clean sheet for the eighth time this season.
