When Galaxy visit Allianz Field they will be sat in fourth place in the League. Minnesota, currently 8 will face an up-hill battle to handle the visitors.

Minnesota United arrive at this meeting, having secured 31 points so far this season

If Minnesota’s season is to maintain on track, they must put their recent poor form to an end in this game. In their last two outings, they lost 4-0 at Sporting Kansas City and 1-0 at Seattle Sounders.

Some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and two losses for Minnesota seems very relevant. With eighth, they currently sit 31 points in the League having won eight fixtures, drawn seven meetings, and lost eight fixtures.

Minnesota have won six meetings, drawn two fixtures, and lost three games of their 11 League matches at home this season.

Minnesota United will have secured 34 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

LA Galaxy have so far accrued 38 points in this season of the Major League Soccer

Galaxy dropped points against Houston Dynamo, only managing a 1-1 draw, having previously drawn 1-1 to Colorado Rapids, so the team will want to win this game to move their season forward.

Galaxy are quickly becoming the Major League Soccer’s draw specialists, having recorded three in their last three matches. Their position is fourth in the League, and they have 38 points having won 11 matches, drawn five games, and lost eight meetings.

Galaxy’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Minnesota. In the 11 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won four meetings, drawn three games, and lost four matches.

A win in this fixture, would take LA Galaxy’s points from 38 to 41, so far this season.
