It wasn’t a win but it did take a lot of pressure off the Vancouver Whitecaps. Some more pressure will come off as the team will be returning home to train before hosting a home match on August 21st. Vancouver announced they would start training back in Vancouver and travel to games away and in Salt Lake.
LAFC and Bob Bradley are coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Portland Timbers. After both teams would hit the back of the net before the 17th minute the match looked to be heading towards a draw. A late stoppage-time goal by Felipe Mora in the 3rd added minute gave all 3 points to the Timbers.
