El Tráfico 2021 Preview

The LA Galaxy and LAFC will play in front of a Southern California crowd for the first time in over a year when the two face-off in the season’s first El Tráfico match on Saturday.

The Galaxy come into the match, winners of two of their first three games. They picked up wins in their first two matches against Inter Miami CF and the New York Red Bulls, before falling on the road last Sunday to the Seattle Sounders, 3-0.

Mexico star player Javier “Chicharito” Hernández will be playing in his first El Tráfico match on Saturday. The all-time leading scorer in Mexican national team history was dominant in the season’s first two games, becoming only the second player in MLS history to score five goals in their team’s opening two matches.

The Galaxy are led by their new coach Greg Vanney, who will be making his El Tráfico debut this weekend.

LAFC (1-0-2) will be looking to remain undefeated, following a win and two draws in their first three matches.

In their previous game last Saturday, LAFC played to a 1-1 tie with Houston, which was highlighted by the return of reigning Golden Boot winner Diego Rossi.

LAFC has been without the 2019 MLS MVP Carlos Vela, who is questionable for Saturday’s match. If he plays, it’d be the first time he’d match up with his Mexican national team co-star Chicharito as an opponent for their club teams.

Midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye knows that the absence of Vela leaves a huge hole for LAFC, but he says that it also presents an opportunity for players to step up.

“Yeah, it’s unfortunate, because Carlos is, I would say, still the best player in the league,” said Kaye. “And it’s unfortunate when we have that guy, and you see him every day in the locker room, and he can’t suit up beside you. But we have guys here who’ve been working really hard to get better, you know, just gives guys more opportunities to showcase themselves.”

LAFC leads the El Tráfico series, the rivalry between the two Los Angeles MLS soccer teams, 4-3-3. The two squads split last season’s matches, with the LA Galaxy winning 3-0 on September 6, 2020 and Los Angeles FC taking a 2-0 decision on October 25, 2020. The Galaxy finished a disappointing 6-12-4 in 2020, while LAFC finished 9-8-5 and were eliminated by the Seattle Sounders in the first round of the MLS Playoffs.
