Last Saturday, September 16, the LA Galaxy visited LAFC at the BMO Stadium for a new edition of "El Trafico". The Galacticos, desperately in need of a victory, lost 4-2 in a match with significant defensive errors.
The authors of the goals for LAFC were Denis Bouanga (23', 75'), Ryan Hollingshead (33'), and Timothy Tillman (84'), while on the visitors' side, the scorers were Billy Sharp (25' ) and Maya Yoshida (59').
LAFC's second goal (2-1):
Yes, the goal is largely the product of the astute finishing of Hollingshead. But still, from my point of view, it also comes after zero coverage in midfield, and very poor coverage in defense, courtesy of Chris Mavinga.
After this painful defeat, the team led by Greg Vanney must seek to add 3 points at a time in their next games, if they want to keep alive the hope of qualifying for the playoffs.
The LA Galaxy's next match in the MLS regular season will be against Minnesota United, at home, next Wednesday, September 20.
