The Colombian Christian Arango and the Ecuadorian Diego Palacios they scored three minutes apart in the second half for Los Angeles F.C. pull out a 2-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls on Sunday.
LAFC, the MLS leader, improved to 10-3-3 with his fourth shutout of the season and capped a crucial weekend of activity. Co-chairman and CEO John Thorrington confirmed after Sunday’s match that the club have signed the Welsh striker Gareth Bale and has reached a contract extension with the Mexican Carlos candle.
Bale, 32, is expected to move to the United States in the next two weeks after spending most of the last nine years with Real Madrid.
Kylian Mbappe, another world soccer figure, sees the Los Angeles team closely as well. The world champion with France in Russia 2018 was watching the game from the stands, being the focus of attention beyond what was happening on the pitch.
New York (7-5-5) started 5-2-1 on the road but has lost three straight on the road without scoring.
Arango scored in the 67th minute, less than three minutes after entering the game. The midfielder stayed in playing position when he received a pass from Vela. Red Bulls defender Dylan Nealis was caught out of position, allowing Arango a clear chance on goal when he fired a forehand shot from the center of the area.
Arango has five goals this season and has scored in three straight MLS games.
Palacios got his first goal with LAFC in the 70th minute. Uruguay’s Brian Rodríguez started the attack, but two Red Bulls defenders intercepted him in the area before finding an unmarked Palacios, who had plenty of time to finish with a left foot against Red Bulls goalkeeper Brazilian Carlos Coronel. .
