Talk about the game here!

USA TODAY Sports

It's time for the game! Chivas USA are hosting Toronto FC this evening (7:30 pm PT, MLS Live). The Goats are hungry for a win, but so is Toronto, so we'll see what happens. In any case, this is the only time they'll be facing each other this year, so it's the night for either side to grab points against a weaker opponent by MLS standards. Who will get the result? Will they share the spoils? Will they somehow both lose (I kid, I kid)? We'll find out soon!
