Tonight the LA Galaxy will be without the services of Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez, as well as the long accepted absences of A.J. DeLaGarza and Robbie Rogers. This plus Robbie Keane's recent international duty puts Jose Villarreal and Jack McBean into the starting forward positions, Michael Stephens starting in the midfield, and Kofi Opare starting next to Leonardo in central defense.
Omar Gonzalez visited with supporters groups before the game as his injury proves more significant than originally thought. Donovan's omission is a bit of a surprise after the way things went down in USMNT camp. Robbie Keane is on the bench but I'd only expect him in an extreme emergency as Keane went the full ninety just yesterday.
LA Galaxy subs: Perk, Meyer, Mastroeni, Courtois, Jimenez, Garcia, Keane
Montreal Impact: Bush; Tissot, Lefèvre, Camara, Ouimette; Pisanu, Warner, Bernardello, Nyassi; Wenger, Di Vaio
Evan Bush has made one appearance for Montreal this season, allowing three goals. The central defenders in front of him are not starters either.
