Can anybody on Bruce Arena’s LA Galaxy first team stop the bleeding in Major League Soccer play? It is a burning question heading into Wednesday night’s match between the Galaxy and the best team in the MLS Western Conference, Pablo Mastroeni’s Colorado Rapids.

“It’s real frustrating,” said goalkeeper Brian Rowe after an Ashley Cole gaffe resulted in a 1-0 loss away to Toronto FC. “I thought we had a good first half, we took it to them, I thought we had the bulk of possession and opportunities.  In the second half it looked like we just died off a little bit so it’s just one of those ones where we’ll go back and be a little frustrated traveling this far and not being able to get that point.

“I think when we get back that is something that we’ll look at, try to break down the film and see what pieces we are missing.  But I think overall we’re going in the right direction, we defend pretty well.  We’ll look at it when we get back.”

“We’ve had too many games we’re we’ve let down on one play, two plays, and its cost us,” said defender A.J. DeLaGarza. “Whether that is a tie or a win, we’ve lost a lot of points and we’ve got to correct those moments from all 11 on the field.  We shut down (Sebastian) Giovinco, and obviously he is the best player in this league so if you can do that you did your job.  Again, we let down in other areas. We haven’t won a game in quite some time so that is going to be a good test for this group on Wednesday against the best team in the league.”

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PT/10:30 p.m. ET. The live blog starts at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.  Keep it right here on The Stoppage Time, powered by Azteca Soccer, for more world football news. Stay connected on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
