Preview: D.C. United host LA Galaxy in Sunday night showdown
The Union got off to a fast start and D.C. United couldn’t capitalize on any scoring chances in the loss. Frederic Brillant scored his first goal of the season in the 54th minute of the second half.
Two of the most storied franchises in the MLS go head-to-head at Audi Field on Sunday night with D.C. United hosting the Los Angeles Galaxy. Both clubs come in with similar records with D.C. United 9-7-9 with 36 points while the Galaxy are 12-10-1 with 37 points. Suffering a 5-1 defeat one week ago to the Philadelphia Union, the Black and Red are determined to bounce back in front of a sellout crowd in front of a national TV audience.
It’s been a newsworthy week since, with the club acquiring midfielders Felipe Martins from the Vancouver Whitecaps and Emmanuel Boateng from the Galaxy prior to the transfer deadline. Additionally, D.C. United picked up Ola Kamara from Chinese soccer club Schenzhen FC.
Earlier in the week, Rooney announced that he will be leaving D.C. United at the end of the season to become a player and assistant coach for English club Derby County. Tonight he’ll face his former Manchester United teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. on FS1.
