Plenty of injury news to talk about for the Galaxy, with Dan Kennedy and Giovani dos Santos set to miss out through injury.
Bruce Arena, though, should be boosted by the returns of Jelle Van Damme and Alan Gordon, after both were absent in last week's victory.
In total, the LA Galaxy are unbeaten in their last four games against the Rapids, and on paper, a Galaxy win would make sense. However, small hiccups are not unknown at the start of the season, and as such, Bruce Arena's men will want to avoid an early-season slip-up here.
