Shorthanded Galaxy falls 2-0 to FC Dallas

FRISCO, Texas — Playing without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romain Alessandrini, the Galaxy lacked the firepower to hang with host FC Dallas in a 2-0 loss Saturday.
The Galaxy (1-1-0) traveled without their two star Designated Players, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is nursing an Achilles injury and Alessandrini has an injured right hamstring.
Reto Ziegler opened the scoring in the 53rd minute, beating goalkeeper David Bingham with a penalty kick into the left corner. The Galaxy’s Diego Polenta conceded the penalty for a high kick in the area.
FC Dallas (1-0-1) doubled the lead in the 61st minute when Paxton Pomykal dribbled near the goal line and sent it back to Bryan Acosta, who smashed a home volley from inside the penalty arc.
