Bruce Arena’s Los Angeles Galaxy will look to rebound from a two-game winless streak by delivering an important road scalp on Mauro Biello’s Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo in Montreal, Que. Montreal are coming off a 2-1 loss to Orlando City away, while the Galaxy drew 1-1 with the San Jose Earthquakes at home.

A match preview, from MLSSoccer.com.

  • Ignacio Piatti scored his third goal in the last three games, but the Impact saw their streak of four consecutive draws put to an end, having now not won in their last six games overall, following their 2-1 defeat at Orlando City SC on Saturday evening.
  • The Galaxy extended their overall undefeated streak to nine games and remained undefeated at StubHub Center this season, reaching a 1-1 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday evening.
  • The teams have reached draws each of the last two seasons, a scoreless draw last Sept. 12 at StubHub Center, and a 2-2 draw in 2014, the first match ever between the teams at Stade Saputo.
  • The Galaxy have the only victory in the four meetings all-time between the clubs, a 1-0 triumph in 2013 at StubHub Center. The teams played to a 1-1 draw in their first meeting, May 12, 2012 at Olympic Stadium in Montréal.

“If we tighten up defensively and stop conceding goals and add a few more clean sheets, then I believe that we’ll be nearly there.  I believe this team is capable of not just winning at home but also has the team to go on the road and dominate teams to get maximum points,” Steven Gerrard said recently. “I don’t think this club should be happy with just getting points on the road. For me, it’s the number one club in the country, and we need to prove that by going away to teams and taking maximum points.”

Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. The live blog starts at 3 p.m. PT/6 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.
