The game in 100 words (or less)Chicago is very, very good at home, and handled Atlanta United to run its season record to 7W-0L-1T at Toyota Park. David Accam set up Luis Solignac for a goal and then sent in a ball that was handled, allowing Nemanja Nikolic to score from the spot, his league leading 12th goal of the season. Chicago pulls to within a point of East-leading Toronto, and has won 7 of 12 since some guy name Bastian starting coming to practice.

The goals

29′ — Accam draws half of Georgia to the right side, finds Solignac — Look at David Accam, going full maze runner with the hope of finding Nikolic. Turns out Solignac was an easier option.

70′ — Nikolic makes it a dozen — The ex-Legia Warsaw man’s game is translating fairly well to MLS, don’t you think? The 29-year-old Hungarian national teamer essentially asks Bernd Storck why he wasn’t in the mix for Friday’s World Cup qualifying loss at Andorra (?!?).

Man of the Match: Juninho. 100 percent pass accuracy, and a half-dozen recoveries in his own half.
