LAFC defeated Seattle after an electric first half. An Own Goal by Jesús David Murillo in the 14th minute gave Seattle the early 1-0 on the road. But LAFC soon found their rhythm, coming at the Sounders defense nonstop eventually leading to a Kwadwo Opoku goal in the 35th minute. Then a Carlos Vela goal in the 43rd minute gave LAFC a 2-1 lead into half. The second half was quiet other than international legend Gareth Bale making his debut for LAFC. LAFC will remain atop the standings in the West.
