LA Galaxy vs FC Dallas (8/26)

LA Galaxy vs FC Dallas

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Home Depot Center

Kick-off: 4:00 p.m

Three crucial points are on the line this Sunday when the LA Galaxy hosts FC Dallas at the Home Depot Center. With LA in fourth place and Dallas in sixth, a win over the Galaxy would put the hoops two points behind the defending MLS Cup Champions.

The LA Galaxy will be stepping foot inside the HDC just a couple of days after defeating Metapan in CONCACAF Champions League action. The Galaxy had a successful first appearance in this edition of the tournament, but it was a 5-2 victory that had some controversial calls that could have affected the Galaxy. Landon Donovan didn’t dress for that game, as a hamstring strain kept him out of action. Head coach Bruce Arena said he was “hopeful” Donovan would be able to play on Sunday.

Dallas and Los Angeles have met twice this season, with the Galaxy taking four out of six points disputed thus far. At home, LA was held to a 1-1 draw in April, and in July the Galaxy went to Frisco and took a 1-0 victory over Dallas. In their last MLS games, the Galaxy played Columbus to a 1-1 draw on the road, while Dallas defeated RSL at Rio Tinto Stadium.
