How to watch LA Galaxy vs. LAFC: Lineups, game thread, live updates

The big game is here!

MLS: Los Angeles FC at Real Salt Lake Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

FT: Galaxy 4, LAFC 3. That was literally unbelievable. You can check out the full recap here.


91st minute: OMG, Zlatan scores again. Galaxy are going to win this.


77th minute: Ay caramba, Zlatan scores a worldie. Unbelievable. LAFC have some time to get their bearings or they’ll lose the game entirely.


73rd minute: Oh boy, Galaxy grab another one when Zlatan Ibrahimovic feeds Emmanuel Boateng, who then feeds Chris Pontius for the score. LAFC getting really, really tight here.


61st minute: In case you thought about turning the game off, Sebastian Lletget scores for the Galaxy to cut the deficit to 3-1. LAFC still in control but they need to tighten up their defense to make sure they don’t blow it.


48th minute: Own goal! Daniel Steres is unfortunate as Marcos Urena’s cross is bundled past Bingham to make it 3-0 LAFC. Good work by Ureña, a half-reward for a great shift so far today.


26th minute: GOAL Vela! It wasn’t quite as beautiful this time, but Vela beat a flailing David Bingham and cast of Galaxy defenders before plunking his shot off the crossbar and over the line. Great work on the goal to make it 2-0.


22nd minute: Tyler Miller gets a fingertip to a cross destined for Ola Kamara at the back post. Good play from the LAFC goalkeeper.


5th minute: Gooooooooooooooooooooolazo! Carlos Vela puts in a beautiful curler from just outside the box. What a goal!


Lineups

Bob Bradley is going with the hot hand(s), making zero changes in his starting XI from the win over Real Salt Lake three weeks ago. Biggest surprise? Dejan Jakovic keeps his place over Walker Zimmerman, who is fit to play.

On the Galaxy side, neither of the dos Santos brothers or Romain Alessandrini are on the 18 today. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is, as expected, on the bench.


Los Angeles Football Club seek to draw first blood in their local rivalry, when they face the LA Galaxy at StubHub Center on Saturday afternoon in the first edition of El Trafico.
