Lineups:

Looks like a 4-4-2, with Oniel Fisher getting the nod at left back. Otherwise it’s pretty much who you would expect.

Minnesota rolls with their best-available XI, looks like, as you’d expect.


Decision Day is here, and the LA Galaxy have to help decide the final playoff spots in the Western Conference, as they host Minnesota United on Sunday afternoon.

The Galaxy control their postseason destiny, with a win clinching their playoff spot. But the Loons are sitting just a point ahead of LA, and their playoff spot isn’t yet clinched, either, so they have stakes in this game as well. It’s sure to be a pre-playoff game, in a sense.

Still, while LA can guarantee a postseason ticket with a win, they could still reach the playoffs with a draw or loss if other results go their way. That’s a dangerous game, however, so it’s probably best not to hope for the best.

Jorge Villafaña remains on the questionable list for LA, with Séga Coulibaly joining him. Ozzie Alonso (yellow cards) is suspended for Minnesota, and Justin McMaster is listed as out.

So will the Galaxy get the job done and book their ticket? 90 minutes of work with the season on the line. Let’s do this.

Odds:

According to our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Thursday evening, LA are (+105), Minnesota are (+250) and a draw is at (+275). The Galaxy are slight favorites but it’s close to a push, which makes sense in this context.

How to Watch:

Sunday’s match between LA and Minnesota United will be televised nationally on FS1, which you can watch on Fubo TV. The TV broadcast is scheduled to start at 3 pm PT with kickoff to follow at 3:25 pm.
