Robin Fraser’s Chivas USA methodically dismantled Toronto FC to the tune of 3-0 at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California. And a key player in the whole scoring festival for the Goats was former Galaxy scoring ace Juan Pablo Angel.
In the 12th minute, Ante Jazic’s delivery to Juan Pablo Angel gave the Colombian national his eighth goal of the season. In the 77th minute, a through ball from Ben Zemanski found Juan Pablo Angel, who delivered a blistering shot past Toronto goalkeeper Stefan Frei.
Ángel’s brace halted Toronto FC’s two-game winning streak and gives the Colombian five goals in his last three games for a total of six since he joined Chivas USA on August 17th. The victory gives Chivas USA their first win at home since a 3-0 victory on July 23 while Toronto FC finish the season winless in the Pacific Time Zone.
With the victory, Chivas improve to 8.12.11 (35 points) and remain in the race for the last MLS Cup Playoffs spot, currently occupied by the New York Red Bulls. As for Toronto, they will focus their attention to the CONCACAF Champions League as the winners of the Voyageurs Cup, their playoff hopes officially up in smoke.
Chivas USA’s next match will be on Sunday, Oct. 2 when they host the Philadelphia Union, while Toronto host Pumas UNAM in CONCACAF Champions League play on Tuesday, Sept. 27 and host the Red Bulls on Satirday, Oct. 1 at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario.
