Los Angeles Galaxy go down 2-1 to Real Salt Lake at home despite taking the lead through Robbie Keane.

Los Angeles Galaxy have suffered a 2-1 defeat to Real Salt Lake at home in the MLS Western Conference.

Bruce Arena's side went ahead at the Home Depot Center in the 17th minute when Robbie Keane brilliantly volleyed home Juninho's cross-field ball with his left foot.

However, Real restored parity in the 25th minute through Fabian Espindola.

Alvaro Saborio played a ball through the Galaxy defence that the 27-year-old struck home with ease.

Two minutes later Espindola headed in Javier Morales' cross past Josh Saunders.

That eventually proved to be the winner for Real, as neither side could add to the scoreline in the second half.

Both Galaxy and Real have already qualified for the MLS playoffs.
