It is time for the game! Chivas USA are back in MLS action tonight, as they take on the Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place (7 pm PT, MLS Live). The Goats are playing their first league game since June 1, and while they played a week ago, they lost to a lower division side, the Carolina RailHawks, in the U.S. Open Cup. New coach Jose Luis Real is finally expected to coach the team tonight as well. Meanwhile, Vancouver are coming off a 4-3 win over New England last Saturday. Will they be tired? Will Chivas be rusty? We'll find out shortly.
If you missed it, be sure to check out the match preview from earlier today.
I'll be providing the usual basic play-by-play and commentary of the match in the comment section below. Feel free to jump in and discuss the game as well!
