Player Ratings: LAFC 3-2 RSL

Self-inflicted wounds doomed RSL in LA.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Los Angeles FC Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

David Ochoa - 5 Two of the three goals were out of Ochoa’s control. The own goal may have been just as much on him as it was on Toni if he didn’t yell for Toni to leave it. He had a few good saves on the road in his return.

Donny Toia - 6 This was a pretty decent game from Toia in L.A. Uncharacteristically, he got a couple shots off but they ended up above the goal.

Justen Glad - 4.5 Glad was out of position on a few occasions and was part of the defensive miscues

Toni Datkovic - 4 Toni had some good moments but also had a really bad one with the own goal to Ochoa who had already come out to get the ball.

Erik Holt - 5 Holt was forced into some tough decisions when the midfielders came forward without someone tracking them and he did relatively well with it.

Everton Luiz - 4.5 There were a few too many mistakes from Everton in the midfield allowed LAFC to get forward and get good looks.

Nick Besler 3.5 Besler’s communication with Everton was off in L.A. and runners repeatedly got through the midfield.

Damir Kreilach - 6.5 Kreilach likes playing at Banc of California Stadium. He tends to score really nice goals there and he got another one in this match from the top of the box that he put nicely in the top left corner on a first-touch shot.

Albert Rusnak - 6.5 Rusnak played a smart game and picked up his sixth assist of the season finding Julio who made a perfect run.

Maikel Chang - 6 Chang undoubtedly has an impact on offense when he is on the field. We saw it again against LAFC and he found Damir at the top of the box earning an assist.

Anderson Julio - 6.5 Julio was quite possibly RSL’s most dangerous player in L.A. and he was justly rewarded with a goal. He ended the game with three shots and his speed really created space for RSL.


Joni Menendez - 6 Menendez had a good showing off the bench and did his best to put RSL in positions to score.

Justin Meram- 5 Meram came on and had little to no impact in nearly 20 minutes.

Rubio Rubin - 5 Rubin got one shot off but RSL was unable to do much else with his teammates unable to get him the ball.

Pablo Ruiz - N/A
