Watch: Toronto’s Chris Mavinga strikes Atlanta player in face, gets postgame red

Toronto FC’s Chris Mavinga got a red card Saturday night after the final whistle blew on his team’s 2-2 draw with Atlanta United at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. During a postgame scuffle on the field, Mavinga reached over the official to strike the face of Atlanta player Leandro González Pírez. 

González Pírez fell backward after the blow, and referee Armando Villarreal whipped out a red card. Mavinga will now face suspension for TFC’s next match Aug. 12 at home against New York City FC.
