Notable Performers: Galaxy 1-0 RSL

A few players made a case for themselves.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at LA Galaxy Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Pablo Ruiz - Pablo remains a steady player in the midfield with precise, creative play and a constant threat from the top of the box. If there is much to take out of these preseason games, of note is that Ruiz is picking up right where he left off in 2020 and continues to show that he is needed on the field for RSL to be at their best.

Andrew Brody - Brody has lifted a few eyebrows in this trip to Tucson for preseason and against the Galaxy he was willing the offense for much of the first half. He picks up the pace of the game when he is looking to get forward and has the ability to create some good looks for his team. It will be fun to watch the impact he has on the club this season.

Aaron Herrera - Herrera didn’t get a lot of touches coming on as a substitute in the second half, but when he did he put some really great balls into spots that the forwards probably should have been able to do more with to score. He continues to show that is his starting spot as he is clearly the best in that position.

Marcelo Silva - Silva was tenacious as always, but once again found himself in no man’s land on the Galaxy goal. He got too far forward risking too much trying to thwart the play and lost that bet. Silva is good for a few nice tackles a game, but unfortunately he also has the tendency to sneak up too far nearly every game as well.
