Riqui Puig is adding energy, belief, and game-changing plays. Will Douglas Costa follow?
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy put together a dominating performance on the road against a surging Toronto FC side on Wednesday night. And Riqui Puig rescued a point for the Galaxy when all hope seemed lost.
But Puig wasn’t the only bright spot. Douglas Costa surprised everyone when he came onto the field, scored a set-piece goal, and then played defense. Who was that guy?
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Christian Miles talk about the Galaxy’s 2-2 draw with Toronto and how many good performances there were. And what has the guys optimistic about the rest of the season?
Josh and Christian will start by looking back at everything that went right against Toronto and why the Galaxy escaped with a point. What did the addition of Vazquez do to Puig’s ability to play? And why was Gaston Brugman overlooked in this game?
And why should you take it easy on defenders? Although no one is defending Raheem Edwards’ poor challenge in the box that led to the penalty kick.
Plus, there are rumors of Julian Araujo to Barcelona even as Greg Vanney swats them away. Can the guys shed some light on the possibility of a move?
Finally, the guys will scour some stats, look at the final seven games of the regular season, and get you ready for a tough match against a basement team that isn’t playing like it.
