LAFC Draws Philadelphia Union 1-1 on Saturday Night
The Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) and the Philadelphia Union split the points on Saturday night following a 1-1 contest at Talen Energy Stadium. The Black & Gold continue to remain in first place in the Supporters' Shield standings with a 19-4-7 (64 points) record.
The Union struck first through forward Kacper Przybylko, putting the home side up 1-0 after just three minutes of play. Forward Carlos Vela answered back with the equalizer, notching his 28th goal of the season, the second-most goals in a single season in MLS history (Josef Martinez, 31). Vela made his first start tonight after missing the last two matches due to a hamstring injury he sustained during the August 25th draw against the Galaxy.
LAFC (19-4-7) will return home to host Toronto FC on Saturday, September 21st at Banc of California Stadium. The match is slated for 7:30 p.m. PT on YouTube TV, Univision KVMD, ESPN 710 AM, KFWB 980.
The Club has four games remaining in the 2019 regular season, including three contests at Banc of California Stadium.
