LA Galaxy advance in MLS playoffs over MN United FC | KFAN 100.3 FM

Minnesota United FC v New York Red Bulls

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Sebastian Lletget and Jonathan dos Santos scored four minutes apart midway through the second half, leading the Los Angeles Galaxy to a 2-1 victory over Minnesota in the first round of the MLS playoffs Sunday night to spoil United's postseason debut.

Jan Gregus gave the Loons life with a goal in the 87th minute, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Galaxy hung on to advance to face top seed Los Angeles FC on Thursday in the Western Conference semifinals and set up another ''El Trafico'' derby between the Southern California rivals.

The Galaxy are 2-0-3 against LAFC, which joined MLS in 2018 and set the league record this season with 72 points by going 21-4-9 in the regular season.

The Loons were the only home team to lose in the first round.
