Sigi Schmid is putting his faith in Jon Kempin, starting him for the second successive match. Brian Rowe does not make the bench.
In defense, Bradley Diallo takes over Ashley Cole’s spot at left back with the veteran suspended after picking up an early red card last Wednesday.
Jonathan and Gio dos Santos start together for the first time as members of the LA Galaxy; Joao Pedro lines up next to him.
With Cole’s suspension, Giovani dos Santos is the captain for this match after Romain Alessandrini misses out for family reasons. Ema Boateng switches to the left side and Bradford Jameison IV slots in on the right side of the pitch.
Finally, Gyasi Zardes starts up top once again for the Galaxy. Lets hope he actually gets some decent service in the final third today.
