LA Galaxy Vs. New York Red Bulls Live, MLS Cup Playoffs 2011: Game Underway In LA

We're underway in the second leg of the Western Conference semifinal, which for some reason features the Eastern conference's New York Red Bulls against the Los Angeles Galaxy. The latter hold a 1-0 aggregate lead, earned in New York, so it'll be a bit of a shock if the Supporters' Shield winners don't manage to advance tonight.

John Harkes tells that the Galaxy "can't play as though they're holding a 1-0 lead" which presumably doesn't mean they should press forward for a goal and get hit on the counterattack, although nobody can really tell with him. Anyway, the Galaxy should play like they're holding a 1-0 lead - hold the ball, probe, try to score but make sure they don't get exposed in the process. Simple, right?

The hosts earn a corner in the first minute. David Beckham swings it in, nothing happens. In the meantime I'm pretty sure Harkes has thrown more words into the microphone then I'll write all match. No, I don't like John Harkes. Fortunately, you don't either... erm, hang on.
