LAFC and LA Galaxy tied again in the final derby of the regular season. This time the score was 1-1 in a match in which both teams had many chances to win and encouraged by the desire of the black and gold teams to win. The duel was held in a great atmosphere with 25,174 fans at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson.
before the meeting, Landon was honored with a statue outside the Galaxy Stadium and also entered the Arena of Honor, Reserved for Galaxy Squad Legends.
The score is not good for both, especially for LAFC who is ranked ninth in the Western Conference, while Galaxy remains sixth with 39 points. The top seven from each conference qualify for the playoffs.
“I think we had some chances in the first half. I wanted the players to catch the ball faster,” said Greg Fannie. “I think we were pushing the game a lot, but in the second I don’t think we were very clean with the ball.”
“I think we left two goals on the table in the first half,” Fanny said with regret. “The guys are tired, we played two games away and one here.”
LAFC took the lead in the 11th minute when Senegalese Mamadou Valle jumped between three Galaxy defenders and fired at the left post of Jonathan Bond, who couldn’t do much.
And the Frenchman, Samuel Grandier, met the measures after he fired a pass from the Spaniard Victor Vazquez, after communicating with Julian Araujo and Javier Hernandez.
The next LAFC meet, with six regular season games remaining, will be at home to San Jose on October 16. The galaxy will host Portland on the 16th as well.
“We have six finals left, the team was ‘choosing to play,'” said Vazquez, who like Fanny said.
