The LA Galaxy host FC Dallas in a battle of two clubs separated by a single point on the Major League Soccer Western Conference table.

The LA Galaxy look to hold on to their top-seven place in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference in what is effectively a six-point game Wednesday against visiting FC Dallas, a team that poured in five goals on Saturday in a win over the West’s third-place team, Minnesota United, as Soccerway reported. The hosts return to their home turf for their first league match since July 19, after dropping three straight on the road, and currently sit just one point ahead of seventh-place Dallas. For the Galaxy, questions also surround Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was denied a series of what appears to be obvious penalty calls in a loss to DC United. How “Ibra” will attempt to gain a position in the box against Dallas could play a major role in deciding the winner of the match that will live stream from Carson, California.

Argentine forward Cristian Pavón made his debut for the Galaxy in the game against DC United, and while an unusually generous Ibrahimovic called the new signing “the best man on the field” in the match, as Pro Soccer USA reported, questions still remain as to how Pavón and Ibra will coordinate their attack for LA.

One thing about the Galaxy is certain, however, as The Dallas Morning News noted. They need a win to stop their slide and hold on to a playoff position.
