LAFC Lose Again without Carlos Vela’s Goals

LAFC suffered more disappointment without Carlos Vela in the team, as Minnesota United were able to get a 2-0 victory at the Banc of California stadium. This is the second consecutive game in which LAFC have been unable to win. This places a lot of pressure on the team ahead of the game with Orlando City considering that many of the first-team players will be unavailable due to international action. The breakthrough for Minnesota came after just 25 minutes when Mason Toye was able to score the opener and he was able to double the lead just four minutes later.

The absence of goals from LAFC was quite a surprise considering that this first time that the club has failed to score in a league match since the end of June, when they drew a blank against Colorado Rapids.

Martinez holds the record of 31 goals in a single season set last season. Vela still needs five goals to hit the tally and there are only five matches left in the campaign.
