Match Preview: LA Galaxy II vs. OKC Energy FC | Sept. 28, 2019

LA Galaxy II’s (10-9-10, 40 points) are at home for the fourth time in the last month to take on OKC Energy FC (9-10-11, 38 points) at 7 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 28 at Dignity Health Sports Park Track & Field Stadium. With five matches remaining, LA Galaxy II head into the weekend as a playoff team, sitting 9th place in the USL Western Conference.

Los Dos have started strong in many of their recent matches, scoring the opening goal in four of their last five matches. Helping Galaxy II’s offense this weekend is the potential return of newcomer forward Mohamed Kamara who rejoins the squad after a minor injury.

Junior Gonzalez has led Los Dos back above the playoff line with a 5-3-2 record since taking over in July. Gonzalez would be the first to lead LA Galaxy II back into the playoffs since Curt Onalfo did in 2016.

OKC Energy FC make their way to Los Angeles without a win in their last four matches. OKC are turning desperate for results sitting one point out of the playoffs.
