"I mean it's good spirit, good energy," he said. "We fight for each other and we know what we want."

Next up for the Galaxy: A meeting with local rivals LAFC, to whom they have yet to taste defeat, in the Western Conference Semifinals.

"The history speaks for itself but it's a fresh start, it's a fresh game, never been played in the playoffs so it'll be special for our fans and for us," Lletget said.
