Match #3 Gamethread: Chivas USA Vs. LA Galaxy

USA TODAY Sports

Rivalry Week has failed to disappoint. Games have been tight, passions stoked and some good play which was a concern being so early in the season. So we are here to wrap up Rivalry Week with the only two teams that actually a city, The LA Galaxy and Chivas USA. In Alicia's preview the key to the game will be Chivas' ability to hinder a Galaxy attack that shows no signs of last years early stagnation. In our Three Questions segment, Josie Becker with LAG Confidential predicts a 3-nil victory for the reigning champs. Given the recent history of both clubs, it doesn't seem that far out. But we also know El Chelis had some surprises in store for FC Dallas last week. He's been downplaying the history of the clubs but win might be all he needs to throw an extra heaping of propane into the fire.

Starting Lineups:

LAGalaxy looks to be in a 4-4-2. Cudicini (GK); Franklin, Gonzalez, DeLaGarza, Dunivant; Magee, Sarvas, Juninho, Clark; Villarreal, Keane

LAGalaxy bench: Rowe, Leonardo, Meyer, Garcia, Stephens, Jimenez, McBean

CD Chivas USA in an apparent 3-4-3: Kennedy (C); De Luna, Velazquez, Burling; Avila, Mejia, Minda, Soto; Correa, Agudelo, Morales

Chivas bench: Melia; Borja, Bolaños, Casillas, Alvarez, Rivera, Bowen
