Morelia Scores 2 Late Goals To Beat Galaxy 2-1
MORELIA, Mexico (AP) – Miguel Sabah and Adrian Aldrete scored Tuesday night to rally Morelia to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy in Group A of the CONCACAF Champions League.
Sabah scored in injury time after Aldrete equalized in the 83rd.
Morelia had 70 percent of the possession in the first half, but former Tottenham player Robbie Keane gave the Galaxy the lead in the 52nd minute.
Morelia now shares the Group A lead with the Galaxy on six points from three matches.
Galaxy’s Omar Gonzalez had the best chance in the first half on a 31st-minute header that went off the crossbar.
Landon Donovan helped set up Keane before Aldrete took advantage of a goalkeeping error to tie it. Aldrete’s long shot slipped through the hands of Galaxy keeper Josh Saunders.
Sabah then sealed the win with a header inside the near post.
