The LA Galaxy easily beat Chivas de Guadalajara by two goals to nil at SoFi Stadiumin a match in which the Los Angeles team played without disheveled and knew how to take advantage of a team that still does not raise its head and that saw its shortcomings exposed once again this time in the so-called Leagues Cup.
The stadium was dressed with more than half of the red and white fans, making Chivas practically local. It should be noted that Javier Chicharito Hernández was on the field of play from the beginning in a discreet game in which he played at half speed like the entire LA Galaxy, which was enough for them to win against a team that was really gray.
The goals of the LA Galaxy against Chivas
Chivas did not start off with a bad first half, however, ineffective ball rotations and players running behind the ball was the constant of the teamnothing different from what has been shown so far in the local championship.
at minute 27 Dejan Jovelji attacked the ball well after a corner kick taken by Efraín Álvarez, and in this way he opened the scoring with a first-class shot inside the opponent’s area.
And so the first half passed, with some Chivas who after the goal did not see their reaction and who were surprised after seeing themselves down on the scoreboard. Given this reality, the LA Galaxy looked comfortable on the field of play and did not lose their hair and did not need to fully deploy their game to maintain the result.
The second half and the LA Galaxy’s second goal
Starting the second half the team of LLos Ángeles made six changes, among which Javier Chicharito Hernández stood out, who after 12 years returned to share the pitch with Chivasthe team that saw him born.
The intensity was lower, but the Galaxy seemed very relaxed before a Chivas inoperative and without reaction capacity. And it was like that At 63 the young Mexican Jonathan Pérez took a left with pure power that was going to leave the Flock goalkeeper without options. So with this goal the game had what was going to be the final score.
The second half passed and the Chivas were not going to hurttheir football was not effective and they were little closer to receiving the third than ending up deducting a goal.
Next Friday the Chivas will return to action the Mexican championship against Mazatlán with the task of improving their game and starting to climb positions after the series of unfortunate encounters they have had during the beginning of the season. Meanwhile, Chicharito’s LA Galaxy will face Sporting Kansas City on Saturday in another day corresponding to the MLS.
