Fresh of their first victory on the East Coast since 2013, the Galaxy will look to carry that momentum into Sunday’s contest against expansion side Minnesota United.
The Galaxy (3-5-2) defeated the New York Red Bulls, 3-1, Sunday, thanks to two goals from Romain Alessandrini and Giovani dos Santos’ penalty kick.
Sunday, the Galaxy is back on the road against Minnesota (3-6-2) at TCF Bank Stadium. Both teams are sitting on 11 points.
Minnesota lost three of their first four games, allowing a whopping 18 goals. Since then, things have stabilized a bit. Still, their propensity for allowing goals should brighten the eyes of the Galaxy attackers. Minnesota has allowed 28 goals so far this season.
“It is a tough venue,” Onalfo said of TCF Bank Stadium. “Turf field. It’s narrow and they haven’t conceded a lot of home, so we’re going to have to have that road mentality, push the game and do whatever we can to mimic what we did last week.”
