Podcast: Klinsmann saves the Galaxy in Minnesota, and Galaxy need a win against Colorado

The LA Galaxy got a standout performance over the weekend and grabbed three road points from it. Can they keep that momentum against Colorado on Tuesday?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy are riding high after Jonathan Klinsmann stepped into the net and promptly stuffed Minnesota United for a clean sheet and three points. But why should the Galaxy be hyper-focused on Colorado on Tuesday night?

Hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the Galaxy’s 1-0 win over Minnesota and why Greg Vanney deserves a gold star for being willing to give away a road game while still getting three points.

Rotation is an essential part of the Galaxy’s strategy through the rest of this congested schedule. So a win on the road with a rotated lineup should make fans very excited for what is coming. 

And while Klinsmann was the big takeaway from the game — and is undoubtedly making some fans think that the number two keeper might get the start again — there are plenty of solid performances in that road win that need to be discussed. 

Kevin Cabra, Dejan Joveljić, Niko Hamalainen, and plenty of others deserve some acknowledgment over a hard-fought game that lets the Galaxy really attack their Tuesday night match with the Rapids. 

Plus, Josh and Kevin will update you on all the injuries the Galaxy are suffering and why getting Sebastian Lletget back after a tragic family loss is another big deal for the Galaxy’s growth as a team. 

Finally, the guys are getting you ready for Colorado on Tuesday and discussing why the Galaxy and the Rapids are very similar. And that makes some sense when you compare the two coaches that were once teammates on the Galaxy. 

We’ve got a packed show with plenty of updates as you get ready for a weird Tuesday night game against the Rapids.
