Full Time: LAFC 1, New England 1. It wasn’t to be, as the late equalizer pegged LAFC back once again. Not a great performance, but feels like a missed opportunity.
82nd minute: Goal New England. Brandon Bye smashes in the tying goal with a header from distance. Can either team find a winner here in the final 10 minutes or so?
52nd minute: GOOOOOOOOOOOL LAFC! Ureña scores his first in league play for LAFC, finally. Good job to be in the right spot and take a good one-time finish when the ball works over to him.
Halftime: Scoreless at the break. Not much going on, to be honest, with a couple stinging shots from Ureña the biggest moments for LAFC. Can the home side pick up the pace in the second half?
LAFC going more or less as you’d expect, with Marco Ureña getting the start up top, ahead of Christian Ramirez. Danilo Silva returns as well.
The Revs’ are pretty close to what you’d expect, with Brad Knighton keeping his spot in goal after the last game.
The teams have been in somewhat opposite form this summer, but the Revolution, under new head coach Brad Friedel, started well before fading badly around the World Cup. Their last game, however, was a big boost, as they beat New York City FC at Yankee Stadium last week, so they may truly be up for the challenge.
No suspensions on either side, and the only injury listed for New England is Chris Tierney, a long-term absence with a torn ACL. You can see LAFC’s injury report in the link below.
