LA Galaxy vs. Seattle Sounders: Lineups and match thread

football formations

Somewhat surprisingly there's no Landon Donovan (L ankle) in the starting lineup or on the bench. Jose Villarreal replaces Donovan up top, where likely Robbie Keane will feel the need to fall behind and create for him. Sean Franklin gets his right back spot back with Leonardo still at center back due to DeLaGarza's injury. Otherwise, this is the same lineup the Galaxy have been rocking for a few weeks now.

LA Galaxy subs: Rowe, Opare, Mastroeni, Stephens, Garcia, Courtois, McBean

SoundersFC XI: Gspurning; Yedlin, Hurtado, Scott, Gonzalez; Rosales (C), Alonso, Rose, Neagle; Johnson, Martins

As came out earlier, Clint Dempsey didn't travel with the Sounders so we see Andy Rose who's made eight appearances for the Sounders this season. Eddie Johnson and Obafemi Martins is a formidable pair up top.

Sounders FC Subs: Hahnemann, Traore, Burch, Evans, Moffat, Estrada, Zakuani

All three questionable players for the Sounders make the bench, so it's possible we could see Steve Zakuani before the night is done.
