The Los Angeles derby beat Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The former PSG and Manchester United striker had a double on Sunday, which allowed his Los Angeles Galaxy team to hang the draw (3-3) on the ground of Los Angeles FC, leader of the Conference West of the American Football Championship (MLS).
In the first leg on July 20, the Galaxy had won against his rival 3 to 2 thanks to a hat-trick … of Ibra. This time, he found the opening in the second minute on a superb pass from the former Argentinian midfielder Boca Juniors, Christian Pavon, recently loaned to the Galaxy, 4th in the standings.
In a thunderous start to the match, the CFL equalized by the Ghanaian Latif Blessing (12) before the Swedish star gives the advantage to his only three minutes later. Avoiding the offside trap, he went to score in the deserted cage by goalkeeper Tyler Miller. In the wake, Pavon (16) scored in turn to make the break.
Just before half-time, Blessing was also going for the double, pushing the ball into the goal after a deflected shot by Mexican Carlos Vela. The same Vela allowed his team to come back up to eight minutes after the restart by winning a successful Mark Anthony Kaye pass. Less intense than the first act, the continuation of the second period did not give the opportunity to the two teams to separate.
