Loon Classics: MNUFC at LAFC | 09.01.2019

Grab a Summit and enjoy a game on us. While the 2020 season is temporarily postponed, Minnesota United is providing free streams of past Loon Classics. Next up is a sophomore season game to remember for Mason Toye away from home in the harsh confines of Banc of California Stadium.

LAFC was been unstoppable in 2019 and were looking to clinch the top playoff spot in the Western Conference in Week 26 against the Loons, while Minnesota United were hoping to bounce back from a loss at Atlanta United in the U.S. Open Cup final. LAFC rallied from an early two-goal deficit the previous Sunday at the Banc against the LA Galaxy, ultimately drawing 3-3. Latif Blessing struck for a brace and Carlos Vela netted the equalizer before coming off in the second half with a leg injury. The Loons, even after a second-half rally, couldn't overcome a disastrous opening 16 minutes, falling to Atlanta in the Open Cup final at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in a midweek game. Robin Lod scored his first goal in black and blue two minutes into the second half, but it wasn't enough in the night. This was the first meeting between these clubs in 2019 with the Loons unbeaten against LAFC heading into the game.

Due to MLS restrictions, the stream is only available for viewers within the Minneapolis-Saint Paul broadcast markets.
