Real Salt Lake vs. Los Angeles Galaxy: Rating the Galaxy Players


Bruce Arena’s Los Angeles Galaxy are set to offload a number of players on these player ratings, one would imagine. The Galaxy were hung, drawn, quartered and gibbeted by Jason Kreis’s Real Salt Lake, 2-0, at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. The result gives RSL a 2-1 victory over LA in the 2013 MLS Western Conference Final.

Here are the final player ratings for the Los Angeles Galaxy against Real Salt Lake on Thursday night.

Jaime Penedo 3

Only a punch, according to the Opta Chalkboard. Not good enough. But he wasn’t the goat of this game.

A.J. DeLaGarza 4

Five recoveries, a defender block and an interception. Also had a 66 percent cross success rate and a 50 percent cross success rate.

Kofi Opare 1

Goat of the Match. Stick to playing on the USL PRO team, you’re just not cut out for the big time just yet.

Todd Dunivant 4

Seven clearances, nine recoveries and a 74 percent pass success rate. Does get penalized for three unsuccessful crosses.

Sean Franklin 3.5

Four recoveries, two clearances, two unsuccessful crosses and a 63 percent pass success rate.

Omar Gonzalez 5

14 clearances and seven recoveries but a 60 percent pass success rate on 40 touches. Man of the match in spite of the losing effort.

Robbie Rogers 1

You heard the Angel City Brigade. Get lost. Now.

Marcelo Sarvas 4

Eight recoveries, five headers and an 88 percent pass success rate on 48 touches.

Juninho 4

14 recoveries, theee interceptions, 12 headers and an 83 percent pass success rate on 64 touches. Just didn’t have it in him.

Gyasi Zardes 3

Despite 12 recoveries, Zardes had a 62 percent pass success rate and a 28 percent cross success rate. This can only be a learning experience for the rookie.

Landon Donovan 2

You need a vacation, Landon. I hear Cambodia looks nice this time of year…

Robbie Keane 3
