Player Ratings: RSL 0-1 LAFC

New, 1 comment

RSL did not finish their chances and gave up just enough to lose at home.

MLS: Los Angeles FC at Real Salt Lake Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

David Ochoa - 4.5 Statistically speaking, Ochoa did not have one save all night long. He was a bit late to Vela’s free kick that hit the crossbar and went the wrong way on Cifuentes’ goal.

Andrew Brody - 5.5 Brody’s speed came in handy a few times but he did not have the finishing touch to connect the final pass.

Justen Glad - 5.5 Glad made multiple stops to break up plays, but did not have an outstanding performance.

Aaron Herrera - 6 About half of Herrera’s passes into the area were placed well while others got away from him. Defensively, very good.

Pablo Ruiz - 6.5 Pablo looked like much more of a threat against L.A. than he has in the past few games. He also repeatedly tracked back on defense.

Nick Besler - 5 Besler was clean in his passing as per usual but was not making any highlight reels.

Damir Kreilach - 6 RSL asked a lot of Kreilach in this game and it was clear that he was exhaustesd by the end of the game. His shot was just a bit off base.

Albert Rusnak - 6.5 Rusnak created a handful of quality chances for Rusnak and was really unlucky not to get an assist or a goal.

Maikel Chang - 6.5 Chang was a catalyst for good soccer play and lots of positive ball movement. He had a final pass or two that he sent over, but overall was one of RSL’s best players.

Rubio Rubin - 5.5 Fair or not, Rubin should have scored. Anybody who watched the game thought the ball was going in a couple times only to be denied at the last second. His runs were good, but the finished product simply was not to be.

Substitutes

Bobby Wood - 4.5 Wood had plenty of time to make an impact, but did not have any sort of effect on RSL’s chances. He did not win a duel or have any real involvement.

Justen Meram - 3.5 From his first touch, Meram was poor. It seemed like everything that went though him led to a mistake. That’s not the kind of substitution any of us was hoping for.
