The LA Galaxy have been atrocious at the StubHub Center this season, but on Fan Appreciation Night the team came through for their suffering fans, besting expansion side Minnesota United 3-0 Sunday night in style.
LA have improved during Sigi Schmid’s short time in charge, but the Galaxy were clearly inspired to put on a good performance in their home finale. 11 minutes in, Romain Alessandrini gave LA an early lead on a familiar play, probing down the right side of the box before pulling a quick shot around the keeper and in.
The Galaxy doubled their lead in the 22th minute off a very unfamiliar play: For once VAR came to LA’s defense. A pinpoint Jonathan dos Santos header came off the crossbar and clearly crossed the line but was not ruled a goal, that is until further review.
Romain Alessandrini completed the brace in stoppage time, powering a low finish past Bobby Shuttlesworth to send the fans home happy.
