The LA Galaxy might start getting into a role and playing the soccer we saw last year. FC Dallas is continuously being haunted by injuries.
With all their woes and successes, they will face off at the Home Depot Center in the last match of the day.
The Galaxy are in a two-game winning streak, beating Portland and Colorado. With the defense somewhat figured out after the acquisition of David Junior Lopes, the attention now goes to offensive side.
The biggest question for LA is: Who will step up to score? Robbie Keane has couple, and Edson Buddle only one. All other goals have come from different players, which is both a bad and good thing.
Dallas played a midweek game against Real Salt Lake, so they will be fatigued with the extra travel. Add to that the injuries of David Ferreira, Ricardo Villar, Kevin Hartman and now Carlos Rodriguez—who suffered a dislocated elbow Wednesday night, according to MLS.
Dallas will need to look at its youth to get the job done in Los Angeles.
The Galaxy need to continue its streak and move up the ladder, while Dallas will do the impossible: weather its storm and stay mid-table. Of course a win is always welcomed by the visitors.
