LAFC Edge Atlanta in Thriller

The Black and Gold needed a win to get the bad taste out of their mouths after an overall unsavory outing against the LA Galaxy. They would find no easy opponent in Atlanta, however.

El Tráfico Becomes the Zlatan Show

The first derby match of the year between crosstown rivals LAFC and the LA Galaxy was played last Friday on July 19, 2019.

The Galaxy on the other hand, while still in second place on the season, are not playing the best soccer.

It seems the boys in Black and Gold have found a rhythm early on in the season.  This past Sunday, March 10, LAFC hosted the Portland Timbers at Banc of California Stadium. Portland, while not as strong as they were a few years ago, are still considered a formidable opponent in Major League Soccer, with their frontman Diego Valeri as the Timbers main attacking outlet and threat. But, it was LAFC’s creative talisman Carlos Vela that stole the show in this occasion with an impressive outing, racking up three assists and one goal, having a hand in all four goals
