It took just five minutes for Los Angeles Football Club to set the tone for the brand new “El Trafico“ rivalry, thanks to, who else? Carlos Vela.
After 5 minutes of possession and opening up space in the back line of the Galaxy defense, LAFC took advantage of yet another chance: Diego Rossi fed the ball to Carlos Vela, who sliced an INCREDIBLE STRIKE into the corner of the Galaxy net, for LAFC’s first-ever goal against their city rivals.
Not only is it a simply beautiful goal, but it sets the stage for the entire LAFC-LA Galaxy rivalry. LAFC wanted to come out and make a statement, and the fact that it took five minutes to go up in their biggest Derby match is a HUGE moment for the club.
And then he got another one!
Keep it up, Carlos! #VeLA
