The disappointing results on the road continue for Bruce Arena's team, as they've now lost their past six away from StubHub Center.
With a 3-8-1 record on the road this season, the Galaxy are far from being one of MLS' top teams away from home, as they were last season. Earning a total of 10 points on the road so far puts L.A. in the middle of the pack relative to the rest of MLS.
The Galaxy's road defense seems to be the problem. With 23 goals allowed, they are the worst in the league. And a road-goal differential of minus-nine only puts them behind D.C., San Jose and Chivas USA.
L.A. may be able to squeak into the postseason with a horrible road record, but come playoff time, not being able to get results away from home will all but crush any chance of a three-peat for the Galaxy.
Fortunately for the Galaxy, of their 12 remaining regular-season games, only five are on the road. Furthermore, of those five, one is against a slumping FC Dallas and another is against D.C. United. Vancouver, Portland and Seattle make up the rest of L.A.'s opponents on the road, and they all should present a tough challenge for Arena's team.
