Los Angeles Galaxy are in a tough situation towards the end of the 2021 Major League Soccer regular season. The team from Los Angeles lost 2-1 to Real Salt Lake on Wednesday night at the Rio Tinto Stadium and they are winless in their last eight games. The Galaxy dropped from fifth to sixth place after losing on the road.

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernández was able to find the back of the net in the 76th minute to equalize for Gregg Vanney's men, but a late screamer in stoppage time from Anderson Julio gave the home team the three points. The LA Galaxy will have to turn the page fast, because they will host LAFC on Sunday in the second derby of the year.

‘Chicharito’ laments missing so many chances

“When things are good it is very easy to work and give everything. After tonight’s loss we spoke in the locker room and it was a very good and positive message. These moments are when the character comes out from all of us, starting from me because my standards are very high,” said ‘Chicharito’ during the post-match press conference.

“I want to take responsibility for tonight's result because I can’t miss clear chances. So that is on me because I have to be more ruthless and the game would’ve changed completely. So I didn’t have a great game even though I scored one goal,” said Hernández, who has been on target 12 times this campaign.

Impressive run from RSL

On the other hand this was an important win for Real Salt Lake, because they are making an impressive run to seal their spot in the playoffs. RSL have won three of their last four matches, including beating the Seattle Sounders twice and now, the Los Angeles Galaxy. They sit in fifth place in the Western Conference with seven games left in the regular season.
