The outcome is nice, but boy those extra goals come in handy when heading south of the border (see Galaxy vs Monterrey, 2013). Good on the Galaxy for keeping the clean sheet, and for the defense falling to the dreaded lob pass over their heads leading to a 1 vs 1 with the goalie.
Stood with the ACB the whole game, the numbers were small compared with TJ's supporters but I felt we made our presence felt throughout the game. Though some of the chants crossed the line in my opinion (especially the one about laying down like a TJ whore) but glad to see the "USA!! USA!! USA!!" chant come out at the end.
TJ fans were friendly for the most part, just a lot of banter back and forth on the way back to the car, nothing really hostile. Only weird part was seeing two ACB members nearly throw down over what I think was a flag waving dispute lol..

LA Galaxy vs Xolos - CCL first leg
That wide open header that Omar missed in the 67th is haunting me

Why does Arena love Leonardo so much?

Our defense in the first half was embarrassing.
Credit for not rolling over in the 2nd, but Tijuana just seemed better at ball control and skill whenever they absolutely needed to. I mean in the last 5-7 minutes, did the Galaxy really have any possession or attacking challenge at all?
That said the rolling over and playing dead, and constant complaining at any touch, was expected but still annoying.
