Sunday at StubHub Center, as Galaxy host Seattle in the Major League Soccer.
Leaders Seattle are currently two places higher than their rivals Galaxy, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and third positions respectively.
It’s 15 points so far for LA Galaxy this season, going into this game
Galaxy will be buoyant, following a 1-0 home win against San Jose in their last fixture.
Galaxy keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last seven meetings is astonishing this season. Their position is third in the League, and they have 15 points having won five games and lost two meetings.
Galaxy have won four fixtures of their four League matches at home this season.
A victory for LA Galaxy would put them on 18 points.
Maintaining their position as League leaders will be Seattle Sounders’ primary goal going into this meeting
Seattle dropped points against Austin, only managing a 0-0 draw, having previously drawn 1-1 to Atlanta United, so the team will want to win this game to move their season forward.
A draw statistic of two in two meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Brian Schmetzer’s men wishes for ultimately. They are the team to beat, with 18 points and sitting at the top of the table having won five games and drawn three matches.
Seattle have won two fixtures and drawn one game of their three League matches away from home this season.
A win for Seattle Sounders will take the League leaders to 21 points, further consolidating their position and keeping the pressure on everyone else.
