Not that we haven’t gotten used to this already, but the Galaxy will probably have to put out a makeshift lineup on the road vs. Real Salt Lake.
Kevin Baxter is reporting from training that neither Giovani dos Santos nor Gyasi Zardes are practicing with the squad today, making it unlikely the attacking duo will travel with the team this weekend.
Gio dos Santos, Gyasi Zardes not training with #LAGalaxy today. Likely won't make trip to Colorado— Kevin Baxter (@kbaxter11) March 16, 2017
Oops. Make that RSL Zardes and Gio won't be going to Utah with #LAGalaxy. Sorry bout that— Kevin Baxter (@kbaxter11) March 16, 2017
It’s not the worst news in the world. Our mantra from the beginning of the season has been one of patience: This 2017 Galaxy team needs time: For players to recover from injury, for chemistry to develop, for an offensive identity to take shape.
There’s no real pressing need to rush their most potent attacking weapons back from injury, even if it has a negative short-term impact on results.
In the meantime, the LA Galaxy have a tough matchup ahead of them this Saturday. (Mar 18th, 6:30 pm, Spectrum Sportsnet)
