It was 4-0 for the San José Earthquakes, which is still up. For its part, the Los Angeles Galaxy can not get out of the well and sinks in the positions.
San Jose Earthquakes, led by former River coach Matías Almeyda, beat Los Angeles Galaxy 4-0 as a visitor, led by former Boca coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto, in a match valid for date 19 of Major League Soccer in the United States .
San Jose’s goals were converted by the Argentine Andres Rios, another with a past in River as his coach, and Americans Nick Lima, twice, and Tommy Thompson.
It is also the second victory in a row for the team of the Naked Almeyda on the Twin Barros Schelotto, since last October 3 they had crossed and it had been a 2-1 victory for the Earthquakes.
Those led by Almeyda, who had had a terrible start to the season, reversed the situation for their team and are currently qualifying for the playoffs in seventh position in the Zone B table with a total of 23 points in 18 games. In San Jose Earthquakes, in addition to Ríos, forward Cristian Espinoza, emerged in Huracán and with a brief stay in Boca, played.
In Los Angeles Galaxy, meanwhile, were Cristian Pavón and Emiliano Insúa, also with past in Boca as the heads of the coaching staff. And again the Mexican Javier Hernández disappointed, who was left without scoring with the Los Angeles team. Chicharito spent just 54 minutes on the court and was substituted when his team was already losing 0-2.
The former Real Madrid, who has a salary of six million dollars, has only 652 minutes on the court and barely managed four goals. Too little for someone who came to the franchise as a superstar to forget the influence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The defeat of the Galaxy, which takes him away from the MLS Cup playoffs, also endangers the continuity of Barros Schelotto as coach of the Los Angeles team, which he arrived in in the 2019 season.
The team is last with 15 points, the product of four wins, three draws and nine losses, in a more than discreet campaign, although it still has chances of qualifying for the playoffs that will define the MLS champion.
