The LA Galaxy, despite being a four seed, are still one of the most dangerous teams in the league.
Although LA was 16-12-6 during the regular season, they closed the last ten games 6-1-3 beating the higher-seeded Seattle Sounders and tying the top-seeded San Jose Earthquakes in San Jose.
The Galaxy scored 59 goals this season making them the second most prolific offense in Major League Soccer. However, their defense gave up 47 goals against, the worst of any playoff team in either conference.
The Galaxy were bolstered mid-season by the return of Omar Gonzalez from knee surgery and instantly became better, but now they are likely to be without A.J. DeLaGarza for most, if not all, of the playoffs due to a knee injury.
Landon Donovan returned from a knee bruise he suffered shortly before the USMNT’s October World Cup qualifiers and played 90 minutes against last night against Seattle which is great news for Galaxy fans.
With Robbie Keane, David Beckham, Sean Franklin, Juninho, Todd Dunivant and Mike Magee also ready to go, LA is ready to make as much noise as they did last year when they took home the MLS Cup.
LA will face Sporting KC for the MLS Cup.
