CARSON, California (AP) — Laurent Courtois scored an early goal to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-0 victory over Isidro Metapan in group play in the CONCACAF Champions League on Wednesday.

The Galaxy posted their second victory in the competition to pull ahead of Costa Rica's Cartagines atop Group 8. Los Angeles can advance to next year's quarterfinals with a draw or victory next week at Cartagines.

El Salvador's Metapan, which will host Los Angeles on Oct. 24, was eliminated from contention.
