According to MMA News, this is not the best season for LA Galaxy. The team for which the audience was rooting the most in winning the MLS Cup seems to be struggling to keep up with the performance. So much so that one of the worst teams in the league, Colorado Rapids one the match against LA Galaxy, 1-0.
The worst of it all is that they lost the match in their home state. Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s team tasted their fourth consecutive defeat who is currently placed at number four in the West. Moreover, they did not score a single point in the two previous events as well.
The gameplay was interesting as audiences saw both teams splitting each half into two while planning their strategic, domination movement on the pitch. LA Galaxy performed in the first half after the hosts of the game recommended Tim Howard to hold two tough shots. Keegan Rosenberry did not allow the Galaxies to take the lead and cleared the ball off the goal line at the 23rd minute into the game.
The second half saw a dramatic change on the pitch. This might have the best sequence delivered by Colorado Rapids. The field of the StubHub Centre was filled with guests.
The 3rd name on the MLS goalscoring list, Kei Kamara missed three of the most important opportunities to improve his position on the field. Danger seemed to follow Sierra Leone throughout the game as he could not deliver much.
Luck was on Colorado Rapids’ side. After Galaxy’s goalkeeper missed three chances of blocking them, substitute Andre Shinyashiki scored their winning goal.
He passed the assist to Kamara who was supposed to execute at the chance of opportunity but the ball rolled back to Andre. He was quick to make a move and to everyone’s surprise, scored the game-winner.
This win is significant for the Rapids as they made a comeback from the bad start and took home the first winning title of the season. Tim Howard also posted a shoutout for the team.
Colorado’s next gig is the 25th May game with Columbus Crew.
The Galaxies face the Lions in Orlando just a day earlier. Ibrahimovic will not be playing this match as well and hence, paves the way for yet another tough match full of strategic challenges for the team. Good luck is all we can say right now.
