Sporting Kansas City vs LA Galaxy Match Preview

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns from a two-match suspension for LA Galaxy aiming to further improve his record of nine goals in 10 MLS appearances this season.

But the iconic Swede, who scored the opener from the penalty spot in the corresponding fixture last term, may not be able to save his team from another defeat.

As well as his trademark goals, this season has been defined for 37-year-old Ibrahimovic by hot-headed clashes with opponents on the pitch – firstly ex-Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha, who claimed the Galaxy striker threatened to “do” him, and then New York City goalkeeper Sean Johnson for which he received the two-match ban.

While Ibrahimovic was sidelined, Galaxy’s run of consecutive defeats was extended to four, although they stopped the rot at the weekend when they won 1-0 away to Orlando City.

However, the Galaxy, who are nevertheless still third in the Western Conference, have a poor record in Kansas City, where Sporting gained their first win in eight games at the weekend when they beat Seattle Sounders with a hat-trick from Scotland forward Johnny Russell.

Sporting’s strong suit is scoring goals at home, with only MLS Cup favourites Los Angeles FC bettering them on that statistic this term, and they are backed to find the net more often than the Galaxy here.
