Laurent Ciman's stoppage time free-kick leads LAFC to 1-0 win over Seattle Sounders in historic home opener

LAFC 1-0 Seattle Sounders – A historic day for Los Angeles FC ended in Hollywood style as Laurent Ciman struck a 93rd-minute winner to lead the hosts to a 1-0 win over Seattle Sounders.

LAFC fans have waited a long time to watch their team play at home and they made the occasion a special one. Their support was rewarded with almost the final kick of the game, with the hosts moving back into 2nd place in the West, just two points behind Sporting Kansas City.

Seattle will be incredibly frustrated to have lost 1-0 to the expansion side for the second time this season. They did create chances, with Steven Beitashour’s goal line clearance in the first-half proving to be a pivotal moment. The defeat leaves Seattle rock bottom of the West with just four points from six games.
