LA Galaxy vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Saturday, June 23, 2012
Home Depot Center
Kick-off: 7:30 p.m
The LA Galaxy seemed to benefit from the break, and it seems like the team has started to turn things around. On Sunday the Galaxy ended their seven-game winless streak, and on Wednesday night LA defeated RSL for the first time at Rio Tinto Stadium. Landon Donovan’s brace led the Galaxy to a 3-2 win over the Western Conference leaders. After giving up two goals in the first half LA was able to score three unanswered (Donovan , Magee) and hold on for their second consecutive victory this week. Their busy week comes to an end on Saturday night when the Galaxy host the Vancouver Whitecaps at the Home Depot Center.
The Vancouver Whitecaps are currently third place in the Western Conference. Led by Le Toux and Hassli, Vancouver is a much more dangerous team than last year’s version, which ended last place in the conference with 28 points. Unbeaten in their last four games, the Whitecaps will be looking for their first victory at the HDC. Robbie Keane is expected to be available for Saturday’s game, as LA will try to string together their longest winning streak of the season. The Galaxy will look to finish the week with nine points out of nine available, all against Western Conference opponents.
