The LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls are all set to kick it off. David Junior Lopes has dropped out of the 18, so Tommy Meyer returns. Otherwise, this is a fairly typical Galaxy lineup. The Red Bulls had significantly changed tonight, going with a 4-5-1 to try and be more ball controlled focused with Thierry Henry out. Should be an exciting match, so if you're sitting at home or on your phone at the game, be sure to join me in the comments.
