Galaxy beat Club Tijuana 1-0 in CL quarters
Question of the Day
CARSON, California (AP) - Brazilian forward Samuel scored in the 11th minute as the Los Angeles Galaxy held off Club Tijuana’s frantic late push for a 1-0 victory Wednesday in the first leg of a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal series.
Samuel found the net after Marcelo Sarvas‘ chip into the Club Tijuana box rebounded to him off Galaxy captain Robbie Keane’s midsection.
The Galaxy need only a draw or a one-goal loss in which they score in Tuesday’s second leg in Tijuana to advance to a semifinal next month against Sporting Kansas City or Mexico City-based Cruz Azul. A 1-0 Tijuana win would force overtime.
“Obviously, another goal would have benefited our team,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said. “It’s still nice going there with an advantage, not giving up a road goal is important, and we’re well aware of the fact that Tuesday will be a difficult game, but we’re ready for it.”
Tijuana came closest to scoring in the 61st minute, when Penedo scrambled to knock away a ball rolling toward his net after he misplayed a cross that bounced off Galaxy backline leader Omar Gonzalez, and in the 68th, when Sarvas deflected Gandolfi’s header at the right post.Eds:
