Bingham in action with LA Galaxy during the match against Orlando City

Final Time | Orlando City 0-1 LA Galaxy, MLS

LA Galaxy went in to the match with one aim: to break their current losing streak but without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and with Nani leading Orlando City's attack the task at hand didn't look easy at all.

Orlando were looking to make it two wins in a row, but Jona dos Santos had a great night and opened the scoring with an outstanding strike from outside the area.

Galaxy therefore managed to break its losing streak while the Lions, despite having a great game, failed to find the back of LA's net and suffered their seventh loss of the season.
