The LA Galaxy trot out a lineup to face the Seattle Sounders that is without the injured Leonardo, while the Sounders are using a lineup that is without the injured Osvaldo Alonso. In Leonardo's place in Tommy Meyer, with A.J. DeLaGarza remaining wide right.

Otherwise, Bruce Arena was able to keep the same shape he had in that big home victory over Real Salt Lake. Stefan Ishizaki remains in the starting XI, where he'll play in front of DeLaGarza. Both wings for LA should be quick in this match, while Seattle went with both Marco Pappa and Brad Evans so they're likely expecting a quick match as well.

The MLS Conference Finals opener between New York and New England was fast paced and exciting, let's see if LA and Seattle can match that intensity.
