Los Angeles Galaxy have only played two MLS matches this season, which makes the LA Derby their third. Chivas USA have been faring quite well so far, so I think the SuperClasico will be the match of the month. Here are five key players for the Galaxy in this upcoming showdown.
As always, Robbie Keane continues to be an amazing captain and striker. LA Galaxy have only scored one goal this season, and it came from Keane. He will need to take shots and get the ball past Chivas USA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy to get points for the club.
Chivas USA have acquired some strong strikers and midfielders, so, the LA Galaxy will need to depend on their defenders. Luckily, A.J. DeLaGarza is a great defender for the club. I think DeLaGarza is often very underrated, and this match will give him a chance to shine.
Landon Donovan has moved to a midfielder role this season, and I think it suits the club. He's ready to score goals against Chivas as he tries to surpass Jeff Cunningham's MLS goal-scoring record.
Omar Gonzalez may have played a full 90 minutes for the USMNT in the friendly against Mexico, but I think he's still ready to play hard. He loves the bragging rights that come with beating Chivas USA. As a top defender, he'll need to keep an eye on Mauro Rosales and Erick Torres, who will come in ready to score goals.
Jaime Penedo continues to impress me with his sheer skill. He missed the Champions League match because of visa issues, but he'll be back at it ready to block any shots from Chivas USA attackers. Penedo is always there to pick up the slack, and as long as his defenders do their job, I don't see why he couldn't come out of the match with a clean sheet.
