Match preview

LA Galaxy kick off below the play-off line, but there’s still time for the five-times MLS Cup winners to salvage this season.

It has been a very tough week for LA who needed a 99th minute penalty from Riqui Puig to salvage a draw away to Nashville last weekend.

That’s after Javier Hernández failed to convert from 12 yards, the second time Chicharito had seen a penalty saved in a week.

Then, on Wednesday night, Greg Vanney’s team suffered a very damaging result, battered 3-0 by Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place.

So, having actually failed to win any of their last four, the Galaxy are one place below the play-off spots, three points adrift Real Salt Lake.

The Galaxy still have to play RSL in Carson, with their other remaining fixtures both on the road, namely a Cali Clásico and a trip to Houston.

Colorado Rapids meanwhile are only one point below their hosts but, having played a game more, face an even steeper uphill battle.

Robin Fraser’s team could hardly be in better recent form though having won both matches this week, 3-1 against Vancouver and then 2-1 over San Jose.

Diego Rubio scoring in both matches at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

However, on the road, the Rapids have won just once all season, this a crazy 5-4 victory over RBNY in early-August.

So, LA Galaxy will be confident of claiming the victory they so desperately need at Dignity Health Sports Park.
