Minnesota United 1-3 LA Galaxy: Zlatan Ibrahimovic on target as visitors keep play-off hopes alive
- Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke the deadlock with a close range header in the first half
- Ola Kamara doubled Galaxy’s lead with a tap in minutes after half-time
- Romain Alessandrini made it three with a stunning volley moments later
- Angelo Rodriguez pulled one back for the home side with a header
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored in his fifth straight game and added an assist as the Los Angeles Galaxy kept their play-off hopes alive with a 3-1 win over Minnesota on Sunday.
Ibrahimovic got his 22nd goal of the season with a header off a cross from Rolf Feltscher in the 30th minute and joined Roy Lassiter (1996) as the only other Major League Soccer player with two five-game goal-scoring streaks in the same season.
With Real Salt Lake losing in Portland in their final game, the Galaxy can make the play-offs with a home win over Houston next weekend.

Ola Kamara made it 2-0 in the 50th minute, tapping into an open goal after being teed up by Ashley Cole, before Ibrahimovic set up Romain Alessandrini to make it three a minute later.
It was the 12th goal for Kamara and Alessandrini got his 11th when he volleyed a perfect ball from Ibrahimovic.
Angelo Rodriguez scored his fourth for Minnesota (11-19-3), which played before a club-record 52,242 fans in its last game TCF Bank Stadium, in the 53rd minute. The Loons move into a new stadium next season.
