LOS ANGELES (AP) Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored two first-half goals before Carlos Vela tied it early in the second half, but the LA Galaxy remained unbeaten against rival Los Angeles FC with a 3-3 draw Sunday night.

Cristian Pavon scored his first MLS goal to put the Galaxy up 3-1 after just 16 minutes, but Latif Blessing scored two first-half goals for LAFC before Vela connected for his MLS-leading 27th goal. Vela was unwillingly taken off shortly after his goal with a possible hamstring injury, but neither team could conjure a winning goal in the fifth edition of the El Trafico derby.

The Galaxy are 2-0-3 against MLS-leading LAFC, including a win and a draw this season. Their supporters' section chanted "You can't beat us!" at the home faithful before and immediately after the game at LAFC's Banc of California Stadium.
