LA Galaxy need to end a three-game winless run this week when they face Montreal in MLS.

Galaxy are in danger of slipping out of the Western Conference play-off places after losing to Minnesota United and drawing with Portland Timbers.

Montreal are going strong in the Eastern Conference on the other hand, as they sit third in the table and just three points behind leaders New York Red Bulls.

The hosts will be without Jorge Villafana, Douglas Costa and Sacha Kljestan due to injury, while the away team are missing Tomas Giraldo, Djorde Mihailovic and Bjorn Johnsen for this match.
