Atlanta avoid 50-second red card before routing LAFC 5-0


VAR played a big part in Atlanta United’s 5-0 rout of Los Angeles FC, as Tim McCann was spared a straight red card after just 50 seconds of the match for a crunching tackle with review seeing it brought down to a yellow. The hosts built on that turn of luck and went 2-0 up, before VAR was used to award Miguel Almiron his penalty in the 88th minute, as Atlanta proceeded to add three more goals to their tally in the next 10 minutes.
