LOS ANGELES – The LA Galaxy are on the rise in the MLS Power Rankings presented by ECHO Outdoor Power Equipment after racking up yet another win.
The Galaxy defeated Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2-0 last Friday to earn their fourth win in five matches and complete their best start since the 2010 campaign. Zlatan Ibrahimović and Daniel Steres found the back of the net at BC Place and were named to MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week for their role in the victory.
The complete Power Rankings presented by ECHO Outdoor Power Equipment can be found below:
"Zlatan Ibrahimovic really did play on turf and the Galaxy parlayed his presence into a win over the Whitecaps on the road in Vancouver. That's three consecutive wins for the Galaxy, a run they managed just once in 2018. If Ibrahimovic is committed to playing whenever healthy, regardless of surface, the Galaxy will be in much better shape to improve on that total."
"Guillermo Barros Schelotto was successful in Argentina and South America with Boca Juniors, but he was not known for a particular style. That may be a feature, not a bug, as his Galaxy side looks similar, winning games but not always looking especially good while they do it."
