Los Angeles Galaxy and Seattle Sounders will both look to bounce back from defeats in their respective previous MLS games, when they meet each other at the Dignity Health Sports Park on Sunday night.

After four consecutive victories, LA Galaxy's form has tailed off again, and they are now without a win in their last three games. The Galaxy lost 2-0 to Real Salt Lake in their last game, and are now one spot off the bottom of the Western Conference standings.

Seattle Sounders, in contrast, sit atop the Western Conference standings, but need a quick change in fortunes after losing 1-0 to Portland Timbers in their last match.


Los Angeles Galaxy vs Seattle Sounders Head-to-Head

LA Galaxy have the advantage over Seattle Sounders in the head-to-head stakes, with the Los Angeles side having won 15 times against Seattle, while only losing 11. The two sides have played out ten draws against each other.

There have been no fewer than three goals scored in each of the last four meetings, including a seven-goal thriller won by the Sounders 4-3 last September. Cristian Roldan scored a brace, including the 89th-minute winner.
