Fernandes opened the scoring in the 17th minute, settling Diego Rubios pass with his first touch and finishing a left-footed shot just inside the far post. Sanchez doubled the lead in the 66th minute, converting from the spot after Felipe Gutierrez drew a penalty against Dejan Jakovic.

"I thought in the second half we played better. We changed the shape of the midfield… We weren't doing a good enough job in the first half."

Sporting (11-6-6) won back-to-back road games for just the second time since 2015. LAFC (10-7-6) is winless, while scoring just four goals, in its last five after a five-game unbeaten streak.

We battled to the end.

Back at it Wednesday against @RealSaltLake.
