SuperClasico Title On the Line

The LA Galaxy go in search of their third consecutive Honda SuperClasico title this evening at The Home Depot Center in their second and final game of the year against Chivas USA. The Galaxy won the first leg 2-0 back on April 1, meaning that a win or draw would give the Galaxy the title and eliminate Chivas USA from postseason contention.

The only way that Chivas USA can win the SuperClasico is to win by more than two goals, something that they have only ever done twice in 19 all-time regular season meetings between the two sides. If Chivas win 2-0, the series and all tiebreakers will be level all the way down to caution points, a stat that Chivas have the advantage in after the first leg thanks to the Galaxy's four cards in the first leg compared to just one for Martin Vasquez's team.

Here is the lineup with four changes from last week, that Bruce Arena will use for today's game, which is shown live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.






Subs: Saunders, Marshall, Lewis, Cazumba, Kirovski, Bowen, Magee

And here is how Chivas USA will line up their squad...






Subs: Guppy, Cuesta, Saragosa, Flores, Padilla, Zizzo, Espinoza
