In what has now turned into an annual summer tradition, the LA Galaxy travel to Stanford, California to take on the San Jose Earthquakes in the third and final California Clasico of the MLS regular season.
The bottom line is the Galaxy are not in the best of forms. In the addition of being held scoreless in their last three matches, Bruce Arena's side are winless in their last six games.
It's not just recent form that is troubling, though, the Galaxy have a record of just one win in their last 12 matches against the Earthquakes in Northern California.
And yet, given all the negative context on the leadup to this match, it would not rank as a surprise if the Galaxy picked up something positive from this game. As they say in many parts of the world, a Clasico is a Clasico and you have to know how to play them.
Match date/time: Saturday 10:00 pm EST, 7:00pm local
Venue: Stanford Stadium, Stanford, California
TV: Univision Deportes Network, (Spanish), Univision (Spanish)
