The LA Galaxy got an ugly win over Orlando City and they should try for that against Sporting KC on Wednesday. Will Zlatan Ibrahimovic provide the advantage?
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy got their first win in four games when they beat Orlando City on Friday night. But their work isn’t done as they prepare for the last two games before the international break and as they look to jump over the Seattle Sounders who sit just in front of them.
On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter are breaking down their big takeaways from the Galaxy’s “ugly victory” and getting you ready for the short turnaround.
First, Josh and Kevin will dive into what happened against Orlando. Was it a poorly played game? Or was it the roadmap for how you steal points on the road? And should the Galaxy expect to win more games on the road?
The guys will also discuss the success of Jonathan dos Santos in this game and tell you why his injury might influence the Mexican National Team’s use of him in the upcoming Gold Cup.
Dos Santos is the Galaxy’s best player, even when he’s not playing at 100-percent.
But David Bingham also had a good game for the Galaxy, and the guys will highlight his most significant contribution — the penalty save — and why the netminder has been so important to the Galaxy this season.
Next, the guys will cover Galaxy news, injuries, and what some of its alumni are doing. Will Bruce Arena be on the bench at Dignity Health Sports Park? And where is Giovani dos Santos?
Finally, Josh and Kevin will discuss the Galaxy’s approach to the Sporting KC game on Wednesday night. They’ll tell you that the Galaxy don’t win in Kansas but why this game could be different.
Could the traveling team have the advantage over the home team in a midweek game?
It’s a packed show full of Galaxy stats and information.
