CARSON, California (AP) - The Los Angeles Galaxy kicked off the new MLS season with a 2-0 home win over Chicago Fire on Friday, with goals from Jose Villarreal and Robbie Keane.
Villarreal put the hosts ahead in the 65th minute of a dominant performance by the Galaxy just three months after they raised their third MLS Cup trophy in four seasons.
The Galaxy are unbeaten in 17 league games at home since March 8, 2014.
Retired star Landon Donovan joined his former teammates on the field for a brief pregame ceremony honoring MLS’ first five-time champion franchise in front of a sellout crowd. The Galaxy hung a large temporary banner above the video board to honor the 2014 MLS Cup champions.
