Live Commentary

  • 79'
    SubstitutionDavid Beckham Michael Stephens
  • 75'
    Penalty Goal Landon Donovan
  • 75'
    GOAL GALAXY! Donovan buries the PK to Rost's right. That might just do it for this tie with the Galaxy up 3-1 on aggregate
  • 74'
    PENALTY TO THE GALAXY! Miller with an incredibly clumsy challenge on Beckham
  • 67'
    Solli unleashes a decent left-footed strike from distance that sails over. Henry screaming for him to pass the ball instead
  • 64'
    SubstitutionDax McCarty J. Agudelo
  • 64'
    Agudelo in for McCarty. Let's see what the 18-year-old can do here in the final half hour
  • 61'
    Yellow Card Thierry Henry
  • 61'
    Henry hacks down Gonzalez and picks up a yellow. He will now miss the conference final if New York advances.
  • 57'
    Chance New York! Rodgers gets on the wrong side of Gonzalez again and is in on Saunders, but hits the side netting of the near post
  • 55'
    Crucial defensive intervention by Donovan! Richards crosses for Rodgers on the far post and he would have finished were it not for Donovan tracking back to get a touch
  • 53'
    So close Donovan! He's given space to shoot in the midfield, but his shot deflects off Ream and goes just wide
  • 51'
    Good challenge by Gonzalez on Rodgers who was played in by Richards
  • 49'
    A good break by LA is killed when Donovan's ball to an overlapping Beckham is loose. You expect better from him there
  • 47'
    McCarty sends in a nice clipped ball to Rodgers, who heads it comfortably for Saunders
  • 46'
    We are underway in the second half!
  • Halftime. A really entertaining affair is tied at one, with the Galaxy leading 2-1 on aggregate. Mike Magee with both Galaxy goals in this two-leg tie.
  • 45' + 2'
    Yellow Card Landon Donovan
  • 45' + 2'
    Donovan booked for challenging Rost in the air as he was catching Beckham's free kick.
  • 42'
    Goal Mike Magee
  • 42'
    GOAL GALAXY! IT'S MIKE MAGEE AGAIN! Beckham whips a corner in and Magee gets in front of Richards to nod home
  • 38'
    Chance Galaxy! Birchall with a low strike from distance can only be parried by Rost, but he sprawls out to deny the onrushing Keane on the rebound. Great save.
  • 37'
    Luke Rodgers is living dangerously here. Already on a yellow, he catches Magee late on a tackle near midfield. He's got to be more careful
  • 35'
    Beckham's back on the field. How much will this injury hamper him?
  • 33'
    Beckham appears to have a bit of a problem and needs some attention at midfield. Looks like Dane Richards caught him in the lower back on an aerial challenge
  • 30'
    Donovan looking long for Keane, but Keel is able to cut it out with a header. New York's defense has been mostly solid so far
  • 24'
    The Galaxy are starting to grab possession and momentum here. They've been on the front foot for the last five minutes
  • 19'
    Two great chances for the Galaxy! Beckham plays in an outstanding cross and Magee plays it across the face of goal, but no teammate can get on the end. Then Keane with some fancy footwork beats Keel and strikes the base of the near post
  • 17'
    Big blow for the Red Bulls, as Tainio has to come off injured. Auvray enters the game, and the drop off will definitely hurt the visitors
  • 16'
    SubstitutionTeemu Tainio Stéphane Auvray
  • 13'
    The Red Bulls are buzzing right now and the Galaxy are missing Juninho in the midfield. Henry is being given a lot of space to pick out passes.
  • 11'
    Dax McCarty wins a ball in the midfield, and sends it forward to Henry. The Frenchman's shot is low from distance and easy for Saunders
  • 9'
    Now Beckham has a lot of open space to run into and he fires a shot just wide. Not far off, that.
  • 6'
    What a start for the visitors. Some shoving at midfield ensues after a real tough tackle by Rodgers on Beckham.
  • 5'
    Yellow Card Luke Rodgers
  • 4'
    Goal Luke Rodgers
  • 4'
    GOAL NEW YORK! It's Luke Rodgers after being played in by Henry. That was too easy. Game on now, 1-1 aggregate
  • 1'
    We are underway!
