Full time: LAFC 2, LA Galaxy 2. They got a point, but this is an infuriating collapse. LAFC simply must do better. Check out our full recap here.
86th minute: Goal Galaxy. Ola Kamara with quick thinking off Andre Horta’s poor back pass. What is going on?
83rd minute: Save, Tyler Miller! He stops a point-blank shot from Ola Kamara when the Galaxy were bearing down on goal and looked like they were destined for an equalizer. Will this be the play of the game?
82nd minute: Galaxy goal. Romain Alessandrini slots home a shot from a cross by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Here we go...
76th minute: Andre Horta is off the bench and into a game for the first time for LAFC. Welcome to the newest Designated Player.
Halftime: LAFC lead 2-0, the game breaking down into a foulfest after the first two goals. Can the black-and-gold hold on this time? We’ve got 45 minutes to find out.
21st minute: GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Lee Nguyen scores his first goal for the black-and-gold off a free kick from Kaye’s injury. Not great to see the injury but Nguyen made the Galaxy pay for the foul. LAFC are up 2-0.
20th minute: Mark-Anthony Kaye gets his leg taken out from him by Perry Kitchen and rolls his ankle right out of his boot. He’s crying as he’s carried off the field, and Eduard Atuesta replaces him.
7th minute: GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL LAFC! Carlos Vela heads in the goal through traffic off Adama Diomande’s cross. The home side has the lead!
The teams are both in pretty good form, although LAFC are coming off one of their worst losses, a 5-1 shellacking against Minnesota United. The Galaxy, meanwhile, have the second-longest unbeaten streak in league play right now, so they’re feeling pretty good.
Of note, we don’t know if this will enter into LAFC’s plans, but Luis Lopez is activated after his loan to Orange County SC and could be in the 18 (maybe even the 11?) for this game.
If that’s the case, it will be the first time the Honduran will be on the matchday squad for LAFC.
