LAFC get Rossi and Rodriguez back, Cifuentes slots into midfield, and BWP and Vela start on the bench.
The Galaxy don’t have Chicharito in their squad at all, but Jonathan dos Santos is back.
Los Angeles Football Club will look to get a big result over their biggest rival, as they host the LA Galaxy for the teams’ fourth meeting of the season on Sunday, in a brunch-time marquee showcase on national TV.
LAFC are coming off a 1-1 draw on the road against the Portland Timbers last weekend, a game that looked like a loss that was rescued by 16-year-old Christian Torres’ stoppage-time equalizer. LAFC weathered the international absences pretty well, going 1-1-1 and now, they can regroup and look to finish the regular season strong.
They will encounter a Galaxy side that are feeling a little better themselves, after a late winner against the Vancouver Whitecaps at home last week snapped a six-game losing streak. The Galaxy had been in a tailspin before that, and they will wonder if their troubles are behind them, or if the last game was a blip.
Bear in mind, too, the rivalry here and that the Galaxy won the last two meetings. There have been a couple draws along the way, but teams tend to crush each other one way or the other in El Trafico. Hell yeah, I said it, now let’s see LAFC go out there and get a big win!
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Saturday afternoon, LAFC are (-182) while the Galaxy are (+390). The odds of a draw are (+370). The bookmakers have LAFC huge favorites, which I would say is a surprise, but you know what, it’s 2020. Who knows what’s in store for us here.
