Welcome to the 90th edition of the “California Classic”
After a painful 3-2 loss in “Tráfico” for the Los Angeles Galaxy against cross-town rivals LAFC, the team coached by Greg Vanney returns home to Dignity Health Sports Park, this time to face another team from the country’s most populated state, the San Jose Earthquakes, in the traditional California Clasico.
The Galaxy would seem to be the overwhelming favorite to take all three points in this home game against one of the weakest teams in MLS, however, the Earthquakes have taken the victory in the last visit to the Galaxy’s home.
This happened last August 20, when San Jose won in Carson, California, Jeremy Ebobisse opened the scoring in the 52nd minute for the visitors, the equalizer came with an improbable Olympic goal in the 65th minute by Víctor Vázquez and in the 71st minute Javier “Chofis” López gave the victory to the Northern California team.
Despite a furious reaction from Dejan Joveljic in the second half, the Los Angeles Galaxy were unable to overcome a terrible first half defensively and were stunned by the San Jose Earthquakes, who dropped out of last place in the Western Conference.
Dejan Joveljic gives the Los Angeles Galaxy little hope of leveling the game with his second goal after a shot from outside the box with his left leg into the upper left corner of the frame by TJ Marcinkowski.
The last great opportunity in favor of the Galaxy was wasted by the Mexican Efrain Alvarez who went hand in hand with goalkeeper TJ Marcinkowski, but he could not score the long-awaited goal.
Greg Vanney can’t believe the decision of the referee who didn’t penalize a push in the box by Nathan Cardoso on Kevin Cabral.
Great long pass from Paul Marie who relied on the speed of striker Jeremy Ebobisse, who was caught by the Galaxy defender before attempting his shot on goal.
For the first time in the second half, the visiting team managed to unsettle the goal of Jonathan Bond, who rejected the ball well and deflected it to concede a corner kick.
Alex Covelo responds to try to dampen the Galaxy’s reaction with three new players on the field of play:
Shea Salinas enters for Benji Kikanovi.
Jan Gregus enters for Eric Remedi.
Cade Cowell enters for Cristian Espinoza.
After a good cross, substitute Kevin Cabral, who set up the first assist for the Galaxy, was only inches away and only had to push the ball into the net, but his shot was so weak that it gave goalkeeper TJ Marcinkowski the chance to save the imminent goal.
In his first dangerous action since he came on for the second half, the talented Brazilian midfielder attempted two shots from mid-range with his left foot, the first going high and the second well saved by TJ Marcinkowski.
Furious reaction of the Los Angeles Galaxy at the beginning of the second half, on a counterattack, Efrain Alvarez was in one-on-one with goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski but he could not send the ball into the net.
On his first play entering the field, Kevin Cabral shows his great speed down the left flank and then sends a precise pass to Dejan Joveljic who puts the ball into the net.
Greg Vanney sends three players to try the comeback:
Chase Gasper replaces Raheem Edwards
Douglas Costa replaces Samuel Grandsir
Kevin Cabral replaces Victor Vazquez
After a forgettable first half, the Los Angeles Galaxy are looking for an unlikely comeback in the second half that is already being played in Carson, California.
In a big upset, the Los Angeles Galaxy defense has put in one of its worst performances of the season and thanks to two big mistakes and a slow reaction on the mark, the San Jose Earthquakes are giving the home team a soccer lesson. .
A great filtered pass from Benjamin Kikanovic left Peruvian defender Marcos López unmarked in the box, who eluded goalkeeper Jonathan Bond to score the third goal for the visitors.
The visitors’ Brazilian defender Nathan Cardoso joined the attack and came close to scoring the third goal but his shot was well deflected.
Violent stomp by the Frenchman of the Galaxy Samuel Grandsir on the foot of Paul Marie that the referee punished with a yellow card.
Corner kick taken by Efrain Alvarez and after a rejection by the San Jose defense, Samuel Grandsir hit him from the air and sent his shot well over the visitors’ frame.
Great offensive combination between the Canadian Raheem Edwards and the Frenchman Samuel Grandsir, who was in front of the San José goal, however, his shot was well stopped by JT Marcinkowski.
On the very next play after the first goal, the Galaxy’s defense innocently fumbled off the start and the Earthquakes capitalized with a fine finish from striker Jeremy Ebobisse.
Cristian Espinoza crossed the penalty kick and took advantage of Julian Araujo’s mistake to give San José the early lead.
Julian Araujo makes a very serious mistake by pushing Benjamin Kikanovic from behind so that the referee marks the penalty kick.
It was not of great danger, but the Mexican-American midfielder, Efrain Alvarez, made the first shot that JT Marcinkowski saved without problems.
After five minutes, neither the Galaxy nor the Earthquakes have been able to take a single shot on goal, Los Angeles controls the ball but has not been able to create any danger.
Already playing in Carson, California are the Los Angeles Galaxy and the San José Earthquakes, the home team were the first to move the ball in the match.
