LA Galaxy 1-0 Real Salt Lake – as it happened
So LA get the result their positivity just about deserved, though they may be made to rue some of their wastefulness in front of goal when the second leg comes round. Robbie Keane had a couple of chances at least that he’d have buried on anther day, and despite Sean Franklin’s emphatic shot giving LA the lead, the longer the game went on, the more RSL looked like taking something from the first 90 minutes.
They didn’t in the end though Salt Lake looked a lot better when not playing with two deep midfielders and letting Beckerman clean up in front of defense on his own as he more usually does in their normal diamond formation. The introduction of Velasquez took the game back to LA, and they looked less than confident at times when not being permitted to work their way through and around the RSL defense (where Chris Schuler was immense). Food for thought for Kreis in the second leg, even as he has to think about the continued threat of Keane and Donovan.
As with every other semi-final, this one remains finely poised for the second leg. We’ll have coverage of all of them and thanks for joining us so far. For now, good night.
Final score: LA 1-0 RSL
Final thoughts in a moment
90 mins 2
A final canada goose coat 1000 bulbs reviews set piece chance possibly for RSL (three minutes added on by the way). A fairly central free kick 45 yards out. It’s lofted into the box and Dunivant and DeLagarza bundle it clear.
Beckerman picks it up, curls it to the back post and Gil turns the ball goal wards, but Sandoval can’t get a decisive touch and that’ll be a goal kick. That was the last chance you have to feel.
90 mins 1
Juninho off and in a surprise move DeLa Garza, who looked to be out for the season, comes on for the last few minutes.
