It seems like ages since we last saw the LA Galaxy play at StubHub Center. The five-time MLS Cup champions return home to take on the red-hot Colorado Rapids after a heartbreaking defeat to Toronto FC over the weekend.
There is good news and bad news. The good news is Giovani dos Santos and Steven Gerrard should be available for Bruce Arena after missing Saturday's game through injury. The bad news is injuries keep rearing their ugly head as Robbie Rogers is set to miss the next six weeks following surgery on one of his ankles.
In addition to injuries, the Galaxy will again be without Robbie Keane and Gyasi Zardes who are both out on international duty. Similarly, the Rapids will be missing both Jermaine Jones and Shkelzen Gashi.
If you are keeping tabs, the LA Galaxy are winless in their last five games. In contrast, the Colorado Rapids are the best team in the league and are unbeaten in their last ten matches.
On paper, the Galaxy have a tough task ahead, but all things considered, they will like their chances of getting something positive at home, where they remain unbeaten this season.
