Minnesota United earns second consecutive draw at Allianz Field, 0-0 with LA Galaxy


Minnesota United coach Adrian Heath promised change after Friday’s loss at Toronto and before L.A. Galaxy came to Allianz Field on Wednesday with a five-game winning streak.


Change also came in a reconfigured lineup beyond that and in a scoreless draw that earned United a point after it had allowed seven goals in its previous two games.


United played Galaxy to that draw on a night that attracted an announced crowd of 19,779 and started in warm almost-summer sunshine and included a second-half downpour.


He also started veteran midfielder Kevin Molino – a player he brought with him to Minnesota after both were in Orlando together – for the first time since knee surgery early last season.


Heath did the same with young forward Abu Danladi, who provided a second-half pulse off the bench the last time these teams played in Los Angeles last month.


To make room for them, Heath made defender Michael Boxall, midfielder Ethan Finlay and both Ibarras – Miguel and Romario – substitutes.
