When the Los Angeles Galaxy play Charlotte FC on Saturday as they will be looking to move off the bottom of the Major League Soccer Western Conference.
The visitors are now midtable in the Eastern Conference after having just been eliminated from the US Open Cup midweek.
LA Galaxy have had a difficult start to the season, having won only two of their first 13 games, leaving them bottom of the league. They will take heart, though, from the fact that each of those triumphs came at home, a trend they hope to continue on Sunday.
The LA Galaxy did win in midweek when they met Los Angeles FC in the US Open Cup, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Tyler Boyd and Riqui Puig.
Greg Vanney's men have lost their last two league games and failed to score a goal in each of them, an area in which they must improve. They have only scored 10 goals in the MLS thus far, and this is an issue that they will need to rectify if they are to begin moving up the division.
The visitors will be looking for a quick comeback after being knocked out of the US Open Cup in their most recent match.
Charlotte FC was defeated by Birmingham Legion FC, playing with 10 men for the duration of the second half after Adilson Malanda was sent off.
This stretched their losing streak to two games after being defeated in their most recent MLS encounter as well, putting even more pressure on this weekend to restore trust.
Charlotte FC's away record has been inconsistent, with two wins, a draw, and three losses, but they will be hopeful of picking up three points on Saturday.
