We know you like watching great goals because we like watching great goals. Do you know what’s better than that?

Watching great goals in this grand rivalry ahead of the California Clasico Saturday night.

The bad news? Four goals on this list have been scored by those dreaded San Jose Earthquakes.

Top 5 Goals in Clasico History (according the MLSSoccer):

5. Rodrigo Faria’s series winner in of the best playoff series in Major League Soccer history (this was filmed on a potato).

4. In the 2001 MLS Cup Final, Dwayne De Rosario notched the golden goal in Columbus. That is certainly one we’d like to forget.

3. Finally a Galaxy goal! Of course, it’s David Beckham’s free kick in the crazy 4-3 regular season match in 2012 in Palo Alto.

2. In 2013, Alan Gordon (remember when we used to dislike him?) did Gordon things against us and scored the second stoppage time goal to come from behind.

1. And then once more, it’s Rosario who scored this sensational free kick goal in 2005.
