Game Central

Minnesota United will play its first game in the MLS Cup Playoffs on Sunday, hosting the LA Galaxy at Allianz Field. It will be a tall order for the Loons as they face off against the Galaxy, who have won the title a record five times. LA’s leading scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, enters the game on a five-game scoring streak, but he was kept off the board in the last visit to Minnesota and the Loons will want to keep it that way on Sunday. MNUFC has been nearly perfect at home this season, and will need that home-field advantage in this crucial playoff fixture. The multi-threat Loon attack will be vital to breaking down the Galaxy defense, who also ended the regular season on a loss, falling 4-2 on the road against the Houston Dynamo.
