Galaxy and LAFC go for MLS attendance record with 2023 El Tráfico at the Rose Bowl

Back in March, Charlotte FC set the MLS attendance record when 74,479 showed up at Bank of America Stadium for the club's inaugural home match against LA Galaxy. Now the visitors are looking to bring the record back home with a 2023 El Tráfico of LA Galaxy vs LAFC at the Rose Bowl (capacity: 88,565).

Oh, and it's the season opener.

Chicharito scores a brace in response to a clown-inspired tifo in the Cali Clasico

You don't provoke Javier "Chicharito" Hernández. It is the lesson that a few San Jose Earthquakes fans learned Saturday night after deploying a tifo vs. LA Galaxy that ended up inspiring the striker to score a brace against them. 

The supporter wanted to create a hostile environment for the LA Galaxy in a new edition of the Cali Clasico, unraveling a giant banner mocking them – and LAFC – with the message: "The LA Circus – Same clowns, different costumes."

Gareth Bale says he's on ‘good path’ to World Cup despite never going 90 minutes for LAFC

Wales captain Gareth Bale said he is on a "good path" towards full fitness ahead of the World Cup in Qatar, despite not completing a full game since joining Los Angeles FC in June.

Are Chicharito's days in LA Galaxy numbered? A Uruguayan superstar could replace him

Despite his terrible numbers from the penalty spot, nobody in LA Galaxy can complain about what Javier Hernández has brought to the team. Although the club has been far – very far – from competing for a title, Chicharito has shown his goalscoring skills, amassing 33 goals in 61 MLS games. 

Not bad, right?

USMNT Goalkeeper Power Rankings: Matt Turner's Arsenal Debut And Sean Johnson's Struggles

In a little over two months, the USMNT begins its World Cup campaign in Qatar. Much is still to be decided for the final roster — especially at the goalkeeper position.

Chicharito Hace Contorsión De Bailarín Y Anota Un Hermoso Gol De Tacón

LA Galaxy continúa soñando con un boleto a los playoffs de la conferencia oeste de la MLS, luego de vencer 4-1 a Colorado Rapids, en una noche decorada con un par de golazos. Uno de ellos, por supuesto, tuvo el sello de Javier Hernández.

Gol de tacón de Chicharito

El equipo angelino comenzó como una tromba y antes de los 30 minutos vencía por 2-0 con anotaciones de Gastón Brugman y Raheem Edwards. Este último se lució con una conquista de tintes maradonianos, quebrando cinturas y cruzándola al ángulo ante la pasividad de la defensa rival. 

Carlos Vela Sube La Temperatura De La MLS Con Un Sexy Zurdazo Desde La Media Luna

Carlos Vela hizo subir la temperatura continental la noche de este martes con un golazo sensualote y que selló el 1-1 de LAFC en su visita a Minnesota United. 

Las cosas no comenzaron bien para el club angelino, ya que al cierre del primer tiempo Minnesota United era el equipo que dominaba en el marcador, gracias a un cabezazo de Brent Kallman.

While The New Signings Struggle, Carlos Vela Saves LAFC With 22-Yard Screamer

Trailing 1-0 to a header from Minnesota United's Brent "Leave It All Out There" Kallman on Tuesday night in St. Paul, LAFC saw all its regular season ambition — the Supporters' Shield and a clear path to hosting MLS Cup — slipping away as they stared at a fifth defeat in six matches. 

Gareth Bale had offered very little over 62 minutes before getting the hook, while Denis Bouanga was sacrificed at the same time with Steve Cherundolo hoping that Cristian Tello could offer something different.
