SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – The LA Galaxy’s youth has served them well throughout their CONCACAF Champions League campaign, but it was exposed as they fell 4-0 to Isidro Metapan in their Group 8 finale at Estadio Cuscatlán.
Nicolas Munoz tallied four goals in the first half to seal the victory for the Salvadorian side, who were in control throughout the match. Struggling in the attack from the start, the Galaxy’s best opportunities came from Jose Villarreal who was unlucky not to find the back of the net in the first minute and then saw a header saved by Metapán goalkeeper Fidel Mondragon in the 75th minute.
The defeat sets up a match against Liga MX side Club Tijuana in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals. LA will be seeded sixth for the CCL quarterfinals which resume in March.
