The latest edition of Los Angeles Trafico hit this Sunday night, with LAFC having only one thing in mind: to finally beat LA Galaxy finally, but once again, Bob Bradley's side left the game with just one point, although they're still unbeaten at home.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with the first move of the game, as the Swedish Lion nabbed a dressing room goal to give his side the early lead.

LAFC though was not far behind with the clock showing just 12 minutes gone when Blessing tied the game, but it was not enough to stop Galaxy's assault as Ibrahimovic gave his side the lead again and in less than a breath, Cristian Pavon increased that lead by scoring his first MLS goal less than a minute later.

Latif Blessing gave LAFC hope when at the beginning of the second half he cut Galaxy's advantage with his second goal of the night. And Captain Carlitos Vela earned his team the draw by scoring a few minutes later to level up the match while adding yet another goal to his personal account.

Carlos Vela's injury

The LAFC captain left the game after 61 minutes, with the striker complaining about a problem in his right leg and despite Carlos' desire to stay in the game, Bob Bradley opted to take out the Mexican and get him checked.

Scoring fight

Carlos Vela, despite leaving the game after 60 minutes, took his record to 27 goals, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is tied with Josef Martinez with 22 goals, after scoring a double.
