LAFC vs Toronto FC Highlights
This was the fifth winless game in a row, far and away their worst stretch of the season until now. It’s no coincidence that it coincides with Vela’s injury and struggle back into form.
Though maybe that’s unfair to Vela, considering it’s his heroics that keep snatching draws from the jaws of defeat.
Toronto’s Tsubasa Endoh scored in the 19th minute to give them a lead that they would clutch until a terrible defensive error by Chris Mavinga handed LAFC a chance to equalize from the spot.
And you know how Carlos Vela does from the spot.
Vela moves to 29 goals on the season, two away from the record set by Josef Martinez last season.
LAFC play the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday desperate for a full three points once more.
