If you’re looking for a real pick-me-up with the coronavirus shutdown running on for another week, look no further than a terrific Los Angeles Football Club match airing on ESPN2 on Monday night, the El Trafico playoff win over the LA Galaxy last year.
The game was one of the most hyped playoff games in recent years, with LAFC still looking for their first win over the Galaxy in their sixth try, and that one was the charm, with another thrilling encounter between the teams in the Western Conference semifinal single-elimination game leading to a 5-3 win for the black-and-gold, although the Galaxy made them work for it.
Monday’s airing on ESPN2 caps off a four-game slate of classic soccer games on the network, with this game kicking off at 9 pm PT. Interestingly, all four games on ESPN2 on Monday involve the Galaxy, but all four happen to be Galaxy losses. An LAFC fan behind the programming decisions, perhaps?
Anyway, it’s a good one, and we’ll be watching, so feel free to check in and remember the wild swings for 90 minutes with us as the game is re-aired!
