Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Juan Ramon Loubriel Stadium
Kick-off: 5:00 p.m
On Wednesday the LA Galaxy resume CONCACAF Champions League play when they travel to Puerto Rico to face the Islanders. With just two games remaining in the group stage, a win for both the Galaxy and the Islanders is crucial. With a win, the Galaxy would stay on top of Group 5, six points ahead of Isidro Metapan who will be one game behind. For the Islanders, a win is a must if they want to stay alive in the tournament. After two games the Islanders are at the bottom of the group, with no points so far. The Galaxy and Puerto Rico met just a couple of weeks ago, in a game where a young Galaxy squad put on a dominant performance. Tommy Meyer, Jose Villarreal, Michael Stephens, and Jack McBean all scored their first goals in this edition of the Champions League.
Here are the current standings for Group 5:
TEAM | POINTS | GAMES PLAYED | GOAL DIFFERENCE
LA Galaxy | 6 | 2 | +7
I. METAPAN | 3 | 2 | -1
PR Islanders | 0 | 2 | -6
Only the group leader advances to the knock-out stages.
THIS IS LA!
