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.
Predicted starting 11
