LIVE - LA Galaxy vs. San Jose Earthquakes with TMW
94 - GAME OVER!!! San Jose Earthquakes win 2-1 in Los Angeles and it is the second consecutive defeat for the Galaxy. Fans are not happy and half of the stadium is complaining about the loss. Honestly San Jose played a better game and they have really suffered only after Galaxy tied the game. They were lucky to score almost immediately and after that Galaxy were not able to create any clear chances. It looks like sometimes Los Angeles want to go in the net with the ball. Vanney need to something specially with Araujo and Cabral, two of the most talented players but they looked completely outside of the game. San Jose was able to expose Araujo inconsistency when he needs to defend but other than the two goals they have hit twice the crossbar. Galaxy need to bounce back ad they need to do it away from home since the next game they will play in Carson will be in around a month.
90 - Stoppage time and Los Angeles is desperate for a goal.
85 - Galaxy controoling the ball and looking for the tying goal but San Jose is dangerous on the counter attacks.
80 - Last 10 minutes for the Galaxy to avoid the second loss in a row at home in the span of 3 days. Galaxy are attacking now but they are not dangerous.
71 - GOOOAAAAALLLLLL!!! San Jose got a lucky deflection and a cross from the right is deflected in his own goal by Hamalainen. 2-1 Earthquakes

70 - Now it looks a different game and Galaxy is looking for the second goal. Nice shot from outside of the box from Joveljic but right in the arms of the goalie.
65 - GOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! Vazquez from the corner kick scores for the Galaxy. Huge mistake by Marcinkowsky even if the ball was a little deflected in front of him.
60 - Here we go.Dos Santos, Vazquez and Grandsir in; DePuy, Alvarez and Kljestan out.
59 - Galaxy don't like they have the strenght to come back and San Jose is in control of the game. No idea why Vanney has not made any subs yet.
52 - GOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!! Ebobisse put the ball on the back of the net with a nice header after a cross from the attacking right side. Galaxy leave too much spaces and the goal was coming.
49 - incredible chance for Cabral who finds himself in front of the goalie but his shot is weak and wide.
47 - Another crossbar hit by San Jose with a header by Ebobisse who is able to shot again and Bond had to make another great save.Incredible chance!
45 - End of first half. Finally Galaxy noticed the game has started and they got dangerous a couple of times but their defense is always exposed to San Jose's counterattacks and Galaxy were lucky Earthquakes were really not able to connect with the last pass. At the last second Ebobisse twice had the chance to bring up San Jose but Bond made 2 incredible saves. Another time San Jose coming from Galaxy's right side where Araujo is really exposed.
38 - Finally Galaxy woke up. Alvarez with a nice move and from inside of the area is free to shoot but Marcinkovski saves.

33 - Earthquakes close to the goal with a header by Lopez on a corner kick.
23 - Yellow card for Cabral who foul back a San Jose player and he is lucky the card is only yellow.
22 - Abecasis with a beautiful shot from just outside of the area hit the crossbar. Vanney needs to do some adjustments.
20 - San Jose keep coming all the way to the Galaxy area with no trouble at all. Cabral playing as left winger looks out of place for the moment.
15 - Earthquakes is in control of the game and keep being dangerous on Galaxy right side. Gaalxy trying to counter attack but they should go more vertical.
12 - Another difficult start for Araujo who is not able to find his position and he is not dangerous on the attack and he is suffering when needs to defend.
8 - First corner kick for the home team but the header went too high on the crossbar. Game is already really alive.
4 - first shot of the game has been made by San Jose but it was saved by Bond.
1 - After a beutifully executed national anthem the game is on its way.
LA Galaxy is about to take the field in a must win against San Jose Earthquakes. The LA team needs to bounce back from the ugly defeat they have suffered 3 days when they lost 2-1 at home against Colorado Rapids. It looks like every time Galaxy are about to get a hold of themselves and ready to make the next step the fall short. They are gonna play against a dangerous San Jose team who is looking for points to get a playoff spot. San Jose is just one point behind Portland even if they have a game more. It is almost time for the starting line-ups.
