It came in a 2-1 loss to New England, the Galaxy losing at home to former boss Bruce Arena and Co.
The loss has the Galaxy nine points back of local rivals LAFC in the race for the Supporters’ Shield, and opens the door for second-place chasing Seattle and Houston. Both the Sounders and Dynamo have matches in hand.
Alvaro Morata continues to make the most of limited playing time at Real Madrid, burying a hat trick as Real Madrid stayed productive ahead of this weekend’s big Madrid Derby.
