LA had effectively a must-win game last time out, and they delivered, with a 2-0 win at home over Atlanta United on Sunday. Kevin Cabral scored his first league goal of the season in the opening minutes, before Dejan Joveljić kept his late-scoring magic alive with a last-second capper. As we’ve seen a few times this season, is this the start of something big and good for the Galaxy?
The team they’re facing, FC Dallas, is coming off a win 1-0 on the road over Real Salt Lake, but they’ve only won one in their last five games. They’ve also lost only one in their last five, so things have been kind of middling lately for them. Still, Dallas remain ahead of LA in the standings, albeit only by two points! This is a six-pointer!
The Galaxy are on the verge of falling out of the playoff places, so this game is another big one. In the context of that and the earlier horrible 3-1 home loss to Dallas earlier this season? It’s a huge chance to pick up the points and finally, hopefully at long last, gain traction this season and maybe exorcise a demon in the process.
