Final Time | LA Galaxy 0-1 Colorado Rapids, MLS

Dignity Sports & Health Park opened its doors for the game of LA Galaxy against Colorado Rapids, a match where the home side was looking to get back onto the winning path after the losing streak they had fallen into.

But it all ended up as just a hope, as Galaxy was defeated again, and this time by the worst team in the league. This earned Colorado its first win of the season, thanks to Shinyashiki's goal in the 1-0 victory.

Zlatan's absence was clear, as the offensive attack of the LA side was nowhere to be seen, a worrying fact as the Swedish striker has still one more game to complete his suspension. Colorado did the impossible thanks to Howard, who stopped every Galaxy attempt to keep his net unbreached.
