Week 7 of the 2019 MLS regular season featured goals — lots of them — and that was reflected in the Team of the Week presented by Audi.
Only one of 13 games in the game week was a scoreless draw, with 38 goals scored in the remaining 12 games. Among the highlights was the LA Galaxy’s shutout win at home, Atlanta United’s first win of the MLS season, and the Seattle Sounders, Houston Dynamo and LAFC all remaining unbeaten so far this season.
