After taking a comfortable 3-0 lead into BMO Stadium in Los Angeles, the MLS Champs are moving on despite falling 2-1 to Alajuelense.


Celso Oliveira was on location and captured some of the action for Território MLS:

LAFC almost became the third MLS team to exit the Concachampions after FC Austin and Orlando were booted out of the bracket after last round’s losses.

In Los Angeles, the first goal from the Costa Ricans came early, after a VAR revision that awarded an early PK to the visitors.

Roughly an hour later, following a missed routine save from McCarthy, the ball ended up in the back of his net after an extra touch-in from Aaron Suarez to make it 2–0 minutes into the second half.

The game seemed to be moving towards a dramatic finish before Captain Carlos Vela settled it for LAFC to make it 4-2 on aggregate.

The champions move on and now face Vancouver. At the same time, Alajuelense gains fierce competitor status and not much else, as the valiant effort on a cold night in Los Angeles was impressive but simply not enough to revert a very bad 3-0 result at home.
