The visiting team took an early lead when Samuel Adeniran received a pass from Jared Stroud in the 4th minute and scored his seventh goal of the season. João Klauss scored the visitors’ second goal and the sixth time this season, thanks to an assist from Aziel Jackson in the 28th minute.

The Galaxy played half an hour with one more player after Samuel Aderinan was sent off in the 60th.
With the result, the Galaxy remain second last in the West with eight games left in the campaign, although they are only four points behind FC Dallas, the last playoff spot. The St. Louis is first in the conference with 48 points, seven ahead of second place Seattle.
Greg Vanney’s side are unbeaten in four games and now visit LAFC at BMO Stadium on Saturday.
“The goals we have, we have to improve there. Now we are in the last part and every point is important. So the point is, I hate to hammer it home, but a point is a good point, if you’re down 2-0, it’s a good point,” Vanney said. “I know everybody in that locker room knew there was an opportunity for three points tonight, and we didn’t have a chance. So we regrouped again, and next week we go to everything.
With his two goals against the LA Galaxy, the St. Louis scored 55 goals, leading the league in that department. The Western leader will now visit Houston on Saturday.
