It is game time! Chivas USA "host" the LA Galaxy this afternoon to conclude the game week and open up the 2014 Clasico Angelino (12 pm PT, UniMas/Time Warner Sportsnet). Both teams are coming off draws in their previous league match, though the Galaxy are coming off a bye week, their second of the season. Which team can emerge in this grudge match? We'll find out very soon.
If you missed them, be sure to read the scouting report, Three Questions, and match preview for this game.
I'll be providing commentary and basic play-by-play in the comment section below. Join me in the discussion!
