The Galaxy conceded first but found a welcome sight — a Chicharito goal — in a 1-1 draw against the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday. Chicharito’s goal was well-taken and the striker was fired up and looks locked in after his return from injury. Long may it continue, although the skid the team is on is starting to really hit “concerning” territory.
Minnesota themselves are only on a two-game losing streak, but their last game, a 4-0 spanking at the hands of Sporting Kansas City, has been regarded as the worst loss in the team’s history. Remember, this team got crushed, in a home snowstorm, by Atlanta once upon a time, so that kind of puts the sour feelings about this latest performance in perspective. We’ll see if the Loons are really on a skid now or if they’ll right the ship against a wobbly LA side.
Jonathan Bond and Derrick Williams are both listed questionable for this one for LA. For Minnesota, Juan Agudelo, Hassani Dotson, Jan Gregus, Niko Hansen and Justin McMaster are all listed out, Emanuel Reynoso is questionable for this match.
So, can the Galaxy get back on track with a good road win, or will their skid continue? This should be a good one!
According to our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Thursday evening, LA are (+265), Minnesota are (-105) and a draw is at (+290). That means the Galaxy are pretty big underdogs on the road, a couple time zones away. We’ll see.
