While the Rio 2016 Olympics are underway, Bruce Arena’s LA Galaxy are hoping to start a rugged month on August on a positive note against Jesse Marsch’s New York Red Bulls, led by Bradley Wright-Phillips and Sacha Kljestan, on Sunday, Aug. 7. After a listless performance away to the Seattle Sounders, can the Galaxy pull out a more convincing performance against New York? Or will the Red Bulls hold the wood on their cross-country rivals this time?

The match details, from MLSSoccer.com.

  • The Galaxy saw their four-game winning streak put to an end, but still extended their overall undefeated run to seven matches as Sebastien Lletget scored a late equalizer for a 1-1 draw.
  • The Red Bulls extended their undefeated streak to five games with a third draw in that time, Bradley Wright-Phillips netting a late equalizer in a 2-2 draw with the Chicago Fire on Sunday evening at Toyota Park. It was the third goal for Wright-Phillips over the last two matches; he is tied for second in the MLS Golden Boot standings with 12 goals this season, all coming over the last 16 matches.
  • The teams played to a 1-1 draw last April 26 at Red Bull Arena, the only meeting between the clubs. The Red Bulls are undefeated in their last three home meetings with the Galaxy, after the LA defeated New York 1-0 on Aug. 14, 2010, the first meeting ever between the clubs in Harrison.
  • The Galaxy took the last meeting between the teams at StubHub Center, a 4-0 victory Sept. 28, 2014, which was their first victory vs. the Red Bulls since 2010. New York had won four of the five meetings in between, with one draw, including 1-0 wins in the only meeting in 2012 and 2013.
