Match Preview: LA Galaxy II vs. Phoenix Rising FC | August 19, 2020

LA Galaxy II return to Dignity Health Sports Park for a contest Wednesday afternoon against Phoenix Rising FC at 2 p.m. PT live on ESPN+. 

In their last contest - played on July 25 - LA Galaxy II claimed their second-consecutive victory as Augustine Williams scored the only goal against Republic FC at Dignity Health Sports Park. The club has not played any additional matches since July due to an abundance of caution following an announcement that covered persons within the LA Galaxy II organization tested positive for COVID-19.

The match on July 25 marked four-consecutive home games in which Los Dos have scored. LA Galaxy II haven't drawn in their previous six matches. LA welcome an in-form Phoenix Rising side to Dignity Health Sports Park on Wednesday after the club has scored 10 goals in their last three contests. 

LA Galaxy II are now 3-1-0 during the 2020 season (1-0-0 at home and 2-1-0 on the road). Head coach Junior Gonzalez now holds a 10-6-4 record throughout his head coaching tenure with LA Galaxy II.
