Who else but Riqui Puig to reverse a complicated context? The Spanish midfielder 'stood out' this past Sunday, September 10, in the confrontation between the LA Galaxy and St. Louis City SC.
After going down 0-2 on the scoreboard, the Galacticos found a way to wake up and show a much better level in the second half, compared to what was seen in the first 45 minutes of the game.
It all started with a penalty converted by the LA Galaxy captain in the 53rd minute. As a result of this, the mood of the local team would change completely, and this would be reflected on the field.
LA Galaxy's first goal (1-2):
Well, things would not stop getting better, since in the 82nd minute Billy Sharp would cleverly take advantage of his entry to equalize the score. The Galacticos went from less to more. However, this would not be enough to seal the victory.
The match ended with a score of 2-2. With only 8 games remaining, nervousness surrounding the LA Galaxy situation is beginning to grow. Of course, the team demonstrated an efficient capacity to react in complicated contexts. An essential characteristic of experienced teams. The possibility of seeing the Galacticos in the playoffs, although small, is still latent.
