Galaxy carry unbeaten streak into match at Philadelphia

The LA Galaxy will attempt to extend their unbeaten streak to seven games when they visit the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night at Talen Energy Stadium.


The LA Galaxy will attempt to extend their unbeaten streak to seven games when they visit the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night at Talen Energy Stadium.

Following a pair of wins against Eastern Conference clubs, the Galaxy (8-7-4, 28 points) moved back into the playoff race in the Western Conference.

Last Saturday, the Galaxy defeated the New England Revolution, 3-2. The Galaxy scored two late second-half goals to pull off an improbable win on the road without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who sat out as a precautionary measure.

"We're starting to learn how to play with each other, that's the important thing," Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid told MLSSoccer.com. "I mean obviously, we missed (Ibrahimovic) today, because our game has been cut to him a little bit and he's obviously had a big impact when you look at his goals. The guys are understanding how to play with him, so we had to adjust a little bit today."

The Galaxy have lost only one time in their history against the Union.

Philadelphia advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Open Cup with a 1-0 victory over Orlando City on Wednesday, but the Union have been struggling in league action. They enter this game against the Galaxy with a subpar 7-9-3 record, good for only 24 points.

Union midfielder Alejandro Bedoya, who scored the lone goal against Orlando City in the Open Cup quarterfinals, has been one of their most consistent players all season.

"You talk about a professional, a leader as a captain, a guy who has embraced a young group of players around him," Union head coach Jim Curtin told MLSSoccer.com. "He does everything that does not show up on the stat sheet. He carries himself the right way, runs like crazy. ... He's an example of how you should play the game."

The Union have never defeated LA at home, with two losses and two draws. They scored a total of four goals in those four games.
