LA Galaxy vs. Colorado Rapids: Lineups, Match Thread, and More

USA TODAY Sports

The LA Galaxy are going with two homegrown players up top against the Colorado Rapids. With Robbie Keane out of town the two youngsters are getting a chance to shine.

The LA Galaxy are without Omar Gonzalez and Robbie Keane for this match against the Colorado Rapids, and have responded by replacing Gonzalez with Leonardo and Keane with Jack McBean. We'll see for the first time in competitive action how the two youngsters can play together, and certainly Mike Magee will have a role in facilitating distribution up top.

This is a plug and play change from the lineup the Galaxy started against Chivas USA, but even with Colin Clark starting again this lineup could play more like the after halftime lineup from the Chivas match. Leonardo's entry last week got things going, and Jack McBean was a spark plug up top.

The two of them will be facing a Colorado defense without it's starting keeper Matt Pickens who is out for four to six weeks.

LA Galaxy Subs: Rowe, Meyer, Cochrane, Garcia, Stephens, Jimenez, Rugg

In Robbie Keane's absence, Todd Dunivant is wearing the captain's armband. No word if that means he's been named vice-captain for the year.

Colorado Rapids: Irwin; Wynee, Moor, Calderon, Mullan; Mastroeni, Powers, Thomas; Harris, Brown, Harbottle

Colorado Rapids Subs: Akpan, Cascio, LaBrocca, O'Neill, Ceus, Mwanga, Klute
