HIGHLIGHTS | Galaxy 2-0 Impact - Via MLS (1:59)

In this Week 6 match-up at the StubHub Center, LA Galaxy look to rebound from last week's loss as they host to a visiting Montreal Impact club that is still searching for its first victory of the 2017 campaign. (1:59)

Romain Alessandrini scored in the first half for his third goal in two games and Jermaine Jones added a goal as the LA Galaxy beat the 10-man Montreal Impact 2-0 on Friday night.

The Galaxy won their first home game of the season. The Impact have played to three straight draws.

Alessandrini netted his third MLS goal in the 15th minute. Emmanuel Boateng cut back his defender on the left side and found Alessandrini at the top of the 18-yard box for a shot from distance. Goalkeeper Evan Bush was caught leaning the wrong way.

Montreal's best scoring chance came in the 42nd minute when Matteo Mancosu split three defenders on a breakaway, but his open shot was saved by Clement Diop.

Two minutes later, Marco Donadel was shown a questionable red card for the Impact after his left elbow made contact with Jones, who scored his first goal as a member of the Galaxy in the 74th minute after dribbling in from near midfield.
