LA Galaxy Vs. Rapids Preview: Galaxy Look To Secure Playoff Spot

The Los Angeles Galaxy will attempt to solidfy their spot in the MLS playoffs Friday when they host the Colorado Rapids.

The Galaxy are currently fourth in the Western Conference with 43 points. They are six points up on fifth place and could make up even more ground with a win on Friday. Los Angeles trails third place Real Salt Lake by just three points and is just four points behind second place Seattle.

The Rapids are currently seventh in the Western Conference with 29 points. They have especially struggled away from home. Colorado is 2-12-0 on the road this season.
