New York City FC were looking to regain their winning ways and were able to do so with a 2-1 result over LAFC on Saturday.

The boys in blue were able to see goals from Jesus Media and Ismael Tajouri-Shradi. Making his first start with the team was Malte Amundsen.

It was an exciting match between two quality clubs, as both teams were able to generate chances early in the match.

LAFC were the first to get chances to score, as a series of corners tested New York City FC. It was only the play of NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson that was able to keep the team scoreless.

Both teams were able to go into the half scoreless and continued their quality play to start the Second Half.

It was LAFC that was able to find the back of the cage first as Corey Baird, who struck a long-range goal to make things 1-0.

Head Coach Ronny Deila made some subs to change the momentum of the match, which in fact did help the team as Tajouri-Shradi, Anton Tinnerholm and Talles Magno all had positive minutes for the squad.

It was around the 70th minute when Medina was able to tie up the Match.  Tajouri-Shradi found the game-winner at the 90th minute, which allowed for the team to earn the huge victory on Saturday.

New York City FC will be back in New York on Saturday, June 19 with a meeting with the New England Revolution. The team will have a bit of a change of scenery on that day as they will be playing at Red Bull Arena, with the match scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
