LA Galaxy lost to Columbus Crew SC during the midweek session, and now their sights are set on getting back to winning ways when they host New York City.
LA Galaxy received a fresh blow in their quest for the lead in the Western Conference after suffering their second straight defeat, this time away to Columbus Crew on Wednesday.

Despite the midweek loss, the team led by the Argentine coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto remain second in their Conference, but Houston Dynamo and Seattle Sounders are closing the gap on the LA team.
New York City FC had a slow start to the MLS season, failing to win any of their first six games. However, they have actually only lost once (albeit heavily, going down 4-0 to Toronto FC) and have now put together a run of three victories in their last four matches.
Domenec Torrent is an old acquaintance of the Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Spaniard was Pep Guardiola's assistant during the Galaxy star's single campaign at LaLiga giants Barcelona, in 2009-10.
