In Brief

Perry Kitchen and Romain Alessandrini remain out injured. Jonathan dos Santos and Rolf Feltscher questionable. New signing Favio Alvarez expected to be available. Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended

Looking Back

Slipped to a third straight defeat after being outplayed by a clinical New York City FC side who cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win

Defeat snaps perfect record at home where they have managed to keep just one cleansheet from seven games this season

Looking Ahead

No fresh injury concerns with Alessandrini out for long term with a knee injury

Kitchen also remains unavailable with a foot injury

dos Santos and Feltscher are both questionable with a hamstring and toe injury respectively

Ibrahimovic has been handed a two-match ban by the Disciplinary Committee for clashing with Sean Johnson against New York City FC

New signing Alvarez though is expected to make a debut appearance though it is likely to be on the bench

Points of Interest

Unbeaten in their last seven games at home to Colorado Rapids though just three of them have ended in victories

Colorado Rapids

Last updated: Mon 20 May 2019 10:48
In Brief

Colorado slumped to an 8th straight league defeat last time out. But showed some fight to get back into the game but still came away empty handed. Ford is out. Vines is a doubt.

Looking Back

Were battered for much of the first half and found themselves 2-0 down. But showed fight and spirit to pull it back to 2-2 all but ultimately a penalty miss from Kei Kamara cost them a point.

Colorado are still conceding far too many goals and Conor Casey is struggling to find a defence he is happy with. Colorado have now lost 8 games in a row.

Looking Ahead

Colorado remain on the hunt for a morale boosting first win of the season. Kortne Ford remains out injured.

Diego Rubio continues his suspension. Sam Vines is an injury doubt.

Points of Interest

Colorado are looking to continue their good record at Dignity Health Sports Park having collected 4 points from their last 2 visits. Overall, Colorado have won 2 of the previous 5 meetings with LA Galaxy.
