LAFC to improve defensively!

Despite not having Carlos Vela for this MLS is Back Tournament, Bob Bradley's team looked impressive in offense during their debut against Houston Dynamo.

However, they'll need to work on their defensive play as they conceded three goals without much struggle during that first match.

Can LAFC get their second-ever victory over LA Galaxy?

12:56 PM2 months ago

LA Galaxy in need of a win!

The Galaxy opened the MLS is Back Tournament against the Portland Timbers with a disappointing 2-1 loss.

'Chicharito' did not have the best match despite scoring the team's only goal. He missed a penalty kick and had two more very clear chances that could've given his side the win.

Tonight, Barros Schelotto's side will attempt to be more decisive upfront to get a much-needed victory over their city rivals.

The entirety of the MLS is Back Tournament will be played at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Orlando, Florida behind closed doors.
