CARSON, Calif. – The LA Galaxy were on the rise in the MLS Power Rankings after going undefeated in two matches last week.
The Galaxy earned a 3-3 draw against D.C. United on July 4 and then defeated Columbus Crew SC on Saturday.
The complete MLS Power Rankings presented by ECHO Outdoor Power Equipment are below:
"With a draw and a win this week, the Galaxy quietly built itself some actual momentum. It's five unbeaten for the Galaxy now, with Saturday's 4-0 win over Columbus the kind of result that might indicate real progress for Sigi Schmid's team."
"LA left the door open for D.C. United midweek, who duly obliged, but they may have finally exorcised their defensive demons against a game Crew SC outfit. There's a lot of soccer to be played, but the Galaxy will truly only go as far as their defense takes them."
