Ready for Kickoff in Columbus

Everything is ready for tonight’s match as MLS’ only two remaining unbeaten teams’ faceoff. The Galaxy will look to extend their unbeaten streak to 11 to open the season when they take on the Columbus Crew at Columbus Crew Stadium. Kickoff is just around the corner and Bruce Arena brings in two changes from last Thursday's 1-0 win against FC Dallas. Jovan Kirovski and Sean Franklin return to the starting XI while Franklin will earn his first start since April 17 against Real Salt Lake.

For the second time this season, the Galaxy will be without their forward pairing of Edson Buddle and Landon Donovan who are with the U.S. National for their 2-1 victory over Turkey earlier today in Philadelphia. While Buddle did not see any action, Donovan earned two assists in the final match before departing on Sunday for the World Cup in South Africa.

Here is the complete Galaxy lineup...






Subs: Saunders, Leonardo, Alex Cazumba, Lewis, Klein, Jordan, Mathis

And here is how the host Crew lineup...




Subs: Grenebaum, Oughton, Ekpo, Renteria, Herrera, Garey
