Welcome to your match thread for a Saturday afternoon match-up between Orlando City (1-1-1, 4 point points) and the LA Galaxy (2-1-0, 6 points). This is the only scheduled meeting between the two clubs from opposite conferences this season.
Here’s what you need to know ahead of the match.
The Lions are 2-3-0 against LA in MLS play, but the teams haven’t met since 2019 due to the pandemic-altered schedules of the last two seasons. Orlando is 0-2-0 against the Galaxy on the road and have yet to win in the state of California in MLS play over six prior trips to the Golden State to face LA, LAFC, and San Jose (0-4-2).
