Podcast: Hectic week for Galaxy starts in Minnesota

After a victory over a feisty Dynamo side, can the Galaxy pick up six more points from Minnesota and Real Salt Lake?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It’s a short week for the LA Galaxy as they have to quickly put away their victory over the Houston Dynamo and get ready for a midweek game at Minnesota United.

Your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are busy getting you all the relevant stats for the Galaxy’s two games this week as they also get you through the victory they were able to grind out against a surprisingly good Dynamo.

First, the guys will tell you their big takeaways from the Friday night victory were. That includes the injuries to Romain Alessandrini, and Emmanuel Boateng, and why the Julian Araujo, Diego Polenta, and Jonathan dos Santos were some crucial to the Galaxy’s win.

And are the Galaxy relying on Zlatan Ibrahimovic too much? Josh feels strongly that the Galaxy probably aren’t even tapping into Ibrahimovic’s true potential yet and that the offense will just need to develop around him. Kevin might disagree!

Next, the guys update you on just where the 2019 Galaxy are sitting in comparison to their other starts, and why this team bears a striking resemblance to another season that ended with an MLS Cup.

Finally, the guys are getting you ready for a Minnesota team that is looking to get its first win at home this season while also playing shorthanded thanks to a couple of late-game red cards over the weekend.

Should the Galaxy be looking at all three points versus Minnesota? And with a much more difficult schedule coming up, can the club get maximum points from the two games this week?

We’ve got over 60 minutes of Galaxy-talk just waiting for you, and we’re glad that you joined us on a hectic Galaxy week!
