After losing five straight games, Columbus Crew SC are hoping for a midweek turnaround against an LA Galaxy side that had its seven-match unbeaten streak snapped by the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. 

Crew SC (4-6-1) are coming off a second loss to D.C. United in their last three games, dropping a 3-1 decision at Audi Field Saturday night. The Black-and-Red led 2-0 at the break on goals by Luciano Acosta and Wayne Rooney. Paul Arriola made it 3-0 just after the hour mark before Columbus pulled a goal back on a Bill Hamid own goal in the 75th minute. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a goal and an assist to help the Galaxy (7-2-1) erase an early deficit and take a 2-1 lead into the half, but the Red Bulls rallied for a 3-2 win at Red Bull Arena Saturday afternoon. It was LA's first loss since a 2-0 defeat at FC Dallas on March 9.
