LAFC vs Vancouver Whitecaps FC – May 11, 2024

The Black and Gold extended their undefeated home streak of seven games with a 3-0 victory in the LAFC vs Vancouver Whitecaps FC matchup on Saturday at BMO Stadium. LAFC is currently 5W-0L-2D at home this 2024 MLS season.

LAFC drew first blood in the 18th minute of the match when Denis Bouanga dribbled past a defender and found Cristian Olivera on a low cross in the penalty area open for an easy tap in as Whitecaps goalkeeper Yohei Takaoka was mispositioned. In what may have occurred as déjà vu, the 2023 MLS Golden Boot Winner found Olivera once again in the 36th minute with a low cross to help the Uruguayan secure his brace.

Oliver now has scored six goals across 13 games in all competitions this season. Over the last three games, the forward has scored five goals. Bouanga tied an LAFC record of three assists in a game, matching Mark-Anthony Kaye and Diego Rossi as the only players to do so.

Bouanga was credited his third assist on a cross to teammate Mateusz Bogusz who launched a right-footed shot past Takaoka who took an attempted dive to make any sort of contact on the ball but to no avail. The goal was Bogusz’s fourth of the season.

On the defensive end, LAFC goalkeeper Hugo Lloris recorded four saves and his third shutout of the season and his first clean sheet since March 23 in the 5-0 victory against Nashville.

LAFC will face off against St. Louis CITY SC on short rest next Wednesday, May 15 at CITYPARK.
