It’s the Sasha and Sacha show at Home Depot Center where Chivas USA is leading the Wizards 2-0.
Sacha Kljestan has an assist, while Sasha Victorine has an assist and added the soaring second goal on his first start for Chivas USA that comes against his old club.
Ante Razov created the first in the 26th minutes, sending a telling pass that pierced a flat Wizards defense allowing Victorine to get behind it on the left wing and cutting a ball back that was met by Alecko Eskandarian from about seven yards out. It was his second goal in two games.
The second came in second half stoppage time, Kljestan passing to Atiba Harris, who made a deft touch to set up Victorine’s handsome effort from 19 yards out.
But Chivas USA’s injury woes continue, Razov coming out with a likely calf problem after just half an hour. Justin Braun replaced him.
The lone striker left on the bench, Maykel Galindo, who is struggling to recover from sports hernia surgery, is warming up. Incidentally, Roberto Nurse, largely ineffective since signing from a Mexican team, isn’t even on the bench.
Chivas USA finished the half with eight shots to the Wizards’ two, who haven’t managed to hit the target.
