The LA Galaxy’s midweek clash with FC Dallas for the US Open Cup semifinals turned into a big nightmare. Now, only three days later, the Galaxy will need all of their trademark resilience as they play host to the Colorado Rapids at StubHub Center on Saturday.
The bottom line is the Galaxy need a positive result. Needless to say, their late-game collapse against Dallas is something they will need to forget as quick as possible. In that sense, the Colorado Rapids are the perfect team to do that against.
Of course, the Rapids are having something like their best season in recent years. They’ve lost just once in an outstanding 17 league games, and they are very much in the fight for The Supporters’ Shield. That’s why a win against the Rapids would be a strong statement to the league that the Galaxy are still very much in this.
