The 2017 MLS season has got off to a flyer, with 99 goals scored in the first 35 games of the new season – an average of 2.83 per game. Atlanta United have taken to the league without any real struggle, while fellow expansion side Minnesota United have been conceding goals for fun. They have shipped 18 in just four matches, accounting for 18% of the league’s goals in March.
