The Galaxy’s game against Philadelphia Union ends in a scoreless draw
Despite chance after chance and majorly dominating possession, the LA Galaxy were not able to to put the ball in the net once against Philadelphia Union last night. The game ended 0-0.
It was a rather uneventful match, with the Galaxy missing all 13 shots they attempted, and Philadelphia missing their 8 attempts.
Although Galaxy coach Curt Onalfo was disappointed with his team’s lack of ability to score, he still felt they did a good job of making opportunities and dominating the middle of the field. “I thought we thoroughly outplayed the opponent. We possessed the ball well, moved the ball well, created plenty of goal scoring chances.“ Onalfo said on lagalaxy.com.
This week’s game actually brought a change to Onalfo’s typical line up. He added in an extra midfielder because, “it was just something that we felt like we had to do and I thought it worked in the sense that we didn’t concede anything and we created enough chances where something’s got to go in,” Onalfo continued, however, he did admit that the they “lacked some quality.”
The Galaxy recently have been falling short of expectations, so changing up the lineup and adding some extra support in the middle is not entirely unexpected. Although they still were not able to get a win, last night’s performance was a major improvement off the Galaxy’s 3-0 loss last week.
Next Saturday, the LA Galaxy will take on Chicago Fire at 7:30 at home.
