LAFC dominated Minnesota United on Wednesday night they controlled the pace from the start of the game and never seem to let go. Goals were scored by Eduard Atuesta the 20 year old from Colombia and Mark-Anthony Kaye the 23 year old Canadian both were their first career MLS goals.

Minnesota United's backline struggled all game especially on the left side where Carlos Vela and Latif Blessing attacked heavy especially in the first half. LAFC defense on the other hand played great giving starting goalkeeper Tyler Miller his second clean sheet at home, he has defender Walker Zimmerman to thank who had a incredible goal saving diving header just before the end of the first half.
LAFC deserved to win this game they executed well and made Minnesota United play their game the entire time. After the game I had the opportunity to head to the press conference and interview a few of the players, below is a clip where I ask starting forward Carlos vela "How he and the team felt coming off on a short weeks rest" Vela answers:
