Player ratings as Chicharito overshadows Vela in El Trafico

In the 14th addition of El Tráfico, the LA Galaxy emerged a 2-1 winner against LAFC on Saturday.

Another entertaining clash between these two rivals ignited early on when Chicharito opened the scoring in the 13th minute, finding a ball from Samuel Grandsir at the far post.

Fellow countryman Carlos Vela hit the post and had a goal disallowed for offside soon after, but it was the Galaxy who celebrated again when Sega Coulibaly was met with another beautiful delivery from Grandsir.

LAFC pressed hard after halftime and finally found the net when Cristian Arango fired home the rebound as Jonathan Bond saved another effort from Vela.

But not so for Black and Gold, who were left desperately chasing a lost cause with their undefeated record this season finally fading. Latif Blessing’s late equalizer ruled out after VAR only served to sum up LAFC’s bad luck on the day.
