Columbus Crew 0 LA Galaxy 1

Donovan starts on the bench, Robbie Keane and Beckham are left out of this one as The Galaxy travel to Ohio. The first half lacked the excitement that might otherwise have been present had at least one or two of the big names had put in an appearance, ending with no goals scored. Donovan joined the fray after an hour replacing Birchall - it was his rasping shot coming back of the keeper that gave Chad Barrett the chance to bury the ball for the only goal of the match in the third minute of stoppage time.
This result serves to consolidate The Galaxy's position at the top of the Western Conference 10 points clear of Real Salt Lake.
Josh Saunders had plenty to deal with, and all-in-all, LA were fortunate to get the points without their star players. LA must now ready themselves for the next CONCACAF match on Wednesday, they have faltered after a good start in the Champions League.
