LA Galaxy in the driver seat in as Cartagines play Isidro Metapan to a scoreless draw

The LA Galaxy’s CONCACAF Champions League dreams are alive and well.

LA received the best possible result in Tuesday’s match between Isidro Metapán and C.S. Cartaginés as the two teams battled to a scoreless draw at the Estadio Nacional in San Jose, Costa Rica. Cartaginés controlled play for wide stretches in their “home match” but could not convert their opportunities to put them ahead of the organized Salvadorian club.  No opportunity was more costly than Pablo Jimenez’s second half penalty kick miss that was skied well over the bar.   

Currently, Cartaginés leads Group 8 with four points, but have played two more games than the Galaxy. LA is second with three and Isidro Metapán has just a single point.
