Gyasi Zardes picked a great time to come out of a three-game scoreless drought.
The second-year forward bagged a brace in what was possibly the final Superclasico as we know it, as the LA Galaxy defeated Chivas USA, 3-0, on Sunday evening at the StubHub Center. Zardes’ performance made him our choice for SBI MLS Player of the Week.
Zardes, a Homegrown Player product, scored his first of the game in the 41st minute, taking a pass from Landon Donovan and firing a first-time strike that snuck into the far post. Zardes added his second in the 71st minute off a beautifully intricate goal, finding himself on the end of a 10-pass sequence and slotting into a wide-open net.
Zardes beat out Donovan, new Montreal Impact Designated Player Ignacio Piatti, and Bill Hamid for this week’s honors.
What did you think of Zardes’ performance? Which player stood out to you in MLS Week 25?
