Gutman gets historic goal as Atlanta United ties Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (AP) Defender Andrew Gutman scored the 20,000th goal in MLS history and it came in the 83rd minute to help Atlanta United earn a 2-2 draw with FC Cincinnati on Saturday.

Thiago Almada gave Atlanta United (7-9-8) a 1-0 lead when he took a pass from Luiz Araujo and scored in the 17th minute.

Brandon Vazquez pulled Cincinnati (8-8-9) even 12 minutes later with his 15th goal of the season. Obinna Nwobodo picked up an assist on the score. Vazquez trails only Austin FC's Sebastian Driussi in the Golden Boot chase.

Brenner Souza da Silva scored in the 41st minute - with an assist from Geoff Cameron - to send Cincinnati into halftime with a 2-1 lead.

Josef Martinez and Almada had assists on Gutman's historic second netter of the season. MLS began play in 1993.

Rocco Rios Novo had six saves for Atlanta. Roman Celentano saved four for Cincinnati.
