With LA’s seven match unbeaten streak done and dusted, how will Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s group respond in a mid-week clash Wednesday (4:30 PT, Spectrum SportsNet) vs. a reeling Columbus Crew?
What to watch
Potential squad rotation? Several starters showed fatigue during the Galaxy’s wild 3-2 loss to the Red Bulls, the first of three games in six days.
This match is the perfect opportunity to introduce LA’s newest Tico to the starting lineup and perhaps rotate the fullbacks. The central midfield trio may have a tweak as well, in which case you might see a different formation Wednesday.
A motivated opponent. Caleb Porter’s men have lost five straight matches and are staring down home games with both LA clubs this week. If that wasn’t motivation enough, just days ago the Crew were jobbed out of a perfectly legitimate goal vs. D.C. United thanks to referee incompetence.
They’ll be ready to go.
Speaking of watching...the game is currently not on tomorrow’s broadcast schedule. What gives? Apparently you need to download an app.
