LA Galaxy vs Columbus Crew SC: Predicted Starting XI

New, comments

How we think the Galaxy will lineup against the Crew.

MLS: New York City FC at Los Angeles Galaxy Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Hopefully we can end our winless run at Columbus tomorrow night. With that said, this is our predicted starting XI.

Goalkeeper: Rowe

Brian Rowe didn’t get much help from his defense on the two goals the Galaxy gave up last time out. Both goals could have been prevented had the back line stepped up a little more to apply pressure.

Defense: Cole, Romney, Steres, Van Anholt

Well, it looks like the defense will be unchanged for this match. With Jelle Van Damme suspended for the previous two matches before his transfer, this back line already got time to play with each together.

Midfield: Joao Pedro, Garcia

Jermaine Jones suffered an injury against New York City and it looks like he will not be fit enough for this one. That means that Rafael Garcia will most likely get to lineup next to Pedro in this match.

Attacking Midfield: Boateng, J. Dos Santos, Alessandrini

With Giovani dos Santos still out with a hamstring injury he picked up before the match against New York City, his brother will occupy his spot once more.

Forward: Zardes

Maybe he’ll score, maybe he won’t, I don’t know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
