FC Dallas meet LA Galaxy at the Toyota Stadium on Saturday afternoon in Game Week 2 of the new Major League Soccer (MLS) season.
Dallas started their season with a fairly disappointing 1-1 draw at home to New England Revolution last weekend in a game they were expected to win, having been given a perfect start with an early goal from Colombian Michael Barrios.
Dallas are something of a bogey team for LA Galaxy, having won when the two have met on six of the last seven occasions.
LA Galaxy started the season with maximum points with a 2-1 win at home to Chicago Fire, with the almost obligatory goal from 37 year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic. At the other end of the age spectrum, Galaxy’s earlier equalizer from Daniel Steres came courtesy of an assist from Efrain Alvarez, the 16-year-old midfielder who was making his LA Galaxy debut from the bench last weekend.
