Minnesota United will hope to end a three-game losing streak in MLS this week when they take on LA Galaxy.

The visitors are 12th in the Western Conference table and just three points clear of the bottom spot heading into the clash against Greg Vanney's team.

The home side are not in great form themselves, however, as they have won just one of their last five matches in MLS.

LA Galaxy vs Minnesota United preview

Jorge Villafana and Sacha Kljestan are still missing for the home side with knee and hip injuries, respectively, while Douglas Costa is still unavailable because of a leg problem.

However, Sega Coulibaly and Chase Gasper could make the squad depending on late fitness tests.

The California club are hoping to stop their recent decline by picking up a much-needed win, having collected just five points from as many MLS matches heading into this match.

The visiting team have slightly more severe fitness concerns ahead of the clash in Los Angeles, with Hassani Dotson, Patrick Weah, Romain Metanire and Niko Hansen all out.

Plus, they have lost their last four matches in all competitions, including three straight defeats in MLS for Adrian Heath's team.
