LA Galaxy Atlanta United match preview: What to watch, predicted starting 11 and TV schedule

New, comment

Can Sigi Schmid’s side get a result vs. the Five Stripes?

MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy at Atlanta United FC John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

After a gritty road victory over the Chicago Fire, the Galaxy face a much sterner test at the StubHub Center Saturday night vs. an Atlanta United team unbeaten in five straight. (7:30 PT, Spectrum SportsNet)

What to watch

The midfield battle. Deploying the 4-4-2 with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ola Kamara up top worked at Toyota Park, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Sigi Schmid used the formation again vs. the Five Stripes. Can a four man midfield withstand Miguel Almiron and the dynamic ATL attack?

Is this the game Gio finally returns to the fold? Reports suggest dos Santos could play a role this weekend, but Galaxy fans have been burned before by premature declarations, so who knows.
