All the Galaxy needed to do was keep RSL off the scoreboard and they would have advanced thanks to their 1-0 win. They just couldn't cope with RSL's aggressive play.

L.A. is fortunate this game wasn't a complete blowout. It benefited from a controversial foul that waved off a Javier Morales goal in the 85th minute, and several RSL shots went off of the post and crossbar. This game should have been 3-0, and it could well have been 5-0 if some of those shots had been just a little more accurate.

Grade: C-

Gotta disagree with the assessment of Beckerman. Usually I like him, but last night he had too many sloppy give-aways.
Great game RSL. I always enjoy it when you beat LA. Good luck with Portland. I hope Saborio is fit to play.
