LA Galaxy’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 24 points this season

Greg Vanney’s men were held to a disappointing draw against Portland Timbers in their last fixture, he will be keen to improve on that in this game.

Also, with one draws in one game, Manager Greg Vanney has plenty to ponder, going into the next game, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With 24 points, they currently sit sixth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

When Galaxy host Minnesota, they will do so on the back of four wins, one draw, and three defeat on their own ground.

LA Galaxy will have 27 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Minnesota United arrive at this fixture, having secured 18 points so far this season

With two wins in a row under his belt, Adrian Heath takes his Minnesota team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so eight losses in 12 games would not make this a successful season for Minnesota. They currently stand twelfth in the League, with 18 points for a total of 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

It must be a worrying prospect for Minnesota to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two victories, one dart, and five losse to the home team.

A victory for Minnesota United would put them on 21 points.
