LA Galaxy vs. Seattle Sounders: Starting XI and match thread

The LA Galaxy will have to defeat the Seattle Sounders without A.J. DeLaGarza, who doesn't make the 18 man match day roster.

A.J. DeLaGarza doesn't pass the fitness test for the LA Galaxy and is left off the match day 18 for the return match of the Western Conference Championship against the Seattle Sounders. Dan Gargan is capable starting in his place, as Bruce Arena was likely always going with Leonardo at the center back position. Stefan Ishizaki remains in place as the wide midfielder on the right.

The Seattle Sounders get back Osvaldo Alonso and Lamar Neagle, but Alonso is in DeLaGarza's camp with a hamstring issue. That tends to be a sticky wicket of an injury, so we'll see how hard he pushes on the field.

Broadcast starts at 6:20 pm on ESPN.
