MLS Classics: El Trafico's first playoff bout shows full throttle LAFC, LA Galaxy

El Trafico games tend to turn the intensity up a level or two, but the first meeting between LAFC and the LA Galaxy in the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs took things to an entirely different level.

Now, their 2019 Western Conference Semifinal tilt is the scene for the latest part of our MLS Classics series.

The final outcome was an eight-goal thriller at Banc of California Stadium, one where Adama Diomande and Carlos Vela both bagged braces for the home side. And, yes, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made sure to announce his presence as well.
