Player ratings as Chicharito overshadows Vela in El Trafico


In the 14th addition of El Trafico, the LA Galaxy emerged 2-1 winners against LAFC on Saturday.

Another entertaining clash between these two rivals was ignited early when Chicharito opened the scoring after just 13 minutes, meeting a Samuel Grandsir ball at the far post.

Compatriot Carlos Vela hit the post and had a goal ruled out for offside shortly after, but it was the Galaxy who celebrated again when Sega Coulibaly met another beautiful Grandsir delivery.

LAFC pushed hard after half-time and finally found the net when Cristian Arango fired home the rebound as Jonathan Bond saved another Vela effort.

But it wasn’t to be for the Black and Gold, who were left desperately chasing a lost cause with their unbeaten record this season finally slipping away. Latif Blessing’s late equalizer ruled out following a VAR only served to sum up LAFC’s poor luck on the day.
