LOS ANGELES — Ismael Tajouri-Shradi broke a tie in the 90th minute and New York City FC came from behind in the second half for a 2-1 victory over Los Angeles FC on Saturday.

Jesús Medina scored his fifth goal of the season in the 70th minute for NYCFC (3-2-2), and Tajouri-Shradi got the winner from a corner kick even after his club went down to 10 men three minutes earlier on a red card for Nicolas Acevedo.

Corey Baird scored early in the second half of a discouraging loss for struggling LAFC, which has just one win from its last six matches.

NYCFC returns after an international break against New England on June 19.
