LAFC Takes Down The Earthquakes
LAFC gets a crucial victory against the San Jose Earthquake by a score of 3-1. Danny Musovski scored the first goal of the match very early scoring in the 3rd minute. After a great recovery by Jose Cifuentes in the midfield he dribbled into the area. A diagonal pass to Chicho Arango backheeled the ball allowing Musovski and slotted the ball into the back of the net. A great collective goal that can hopefully bring LAFC together for a playoff push. LAFC added a second goal in the 28th minute via penalty. Once again Chicho Arango was flawless from the penalty spot. LAFC would go into the half up 2-0. A sustainable lead but also a very risky one. LAFC would concede a goal to the Earthquakes in the 66th minute. Carlos Fierro would score after a corner kick swung by all the defenders. It wouldn’t be until the 88th minute where LAFC could breathe comfortably after Chico scored the game sealing goal, giving them the 3-1 victory.
Should LAFC Push for Playoffs or Reset for Next Season
LAFC currently sits in 9th place with 37 points and is 4 points behind the final playoff spot which is being held by Minnesota. With their main star in Vela still being injured and no sign of him coming back anytime soon, LAFC fans should ask themselves should we focus on getting into the playoffs or focus for next season. While obviously it would be a tremendous failure if LAFC didn’t make the playoffs they were without their main star in Carlos Vela. They could also be left without him next season as he is yet to sign a new contract. While many players have stepped up like Musovski and Kim Moon-hwan and Jose Cifuentes and Mamadou Fall. LAFC have a strong core of young talent ready to emerge and take over the MLS. If you’re asking me, I would much rather reset and be ready for the next season because with Vela’s uncertainty there will be a point when LAFC will not be able to rely on him. It is tough times for Bob Bradley and knowing his thoughts he will want to push for the playoffs. LAFC goes to Texas to take on Fc Dallas tonight Wednesday October, 20th in hopes of making their playoffs push.
