How to Watch Real Salt Lake vs. LA Galaxy: Lineups, odds, game thread

Can the G’s bounce back in midweek clash?

MLS: Real Salt Lake at LA Galaxy Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Lineups:

Chicharito and Jonathan dos Santos are starting for the Galaxy!

RSL are fielding a strong XI for them.


The LA Galaxy will look to rebound from their first loss in the local return to play of the 2020 MLS season when they hit the road to take on Real Salt Lake Wednesday evening.

LA dropped a 2-0 decision to the Colorado Rapids at home on Saturday. It was a performance that was more concerning than the result, frankly, with a late red card sinking Galaxy hopes of a turnaround and a listless performance all around. Are they getting tired with two subpar performances, or is this just a blip?

They’ll be facing an RSL team that has been all over the place in this segment of the season, posting a dominant win over LAFC but losing badly to their local rival, the Rapids. Also, their owner is a racist who in recent weeks has been forced to sell the team — but don’t hold that against the players, they confronted him to help make a change.

So what will happen in this one? I honestly have no idea. Maybe that’ll be good for the Galaxy, maybe it won’t. Maybe it’ll be a snoozefest, but hopefully not. Let’s tune in together to find out, shall we?

Odds:

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Wednesday afternoon, LA are (+180) while RSL are (+123). The odds of a draw are also (+290), so the bookmakers think this is a close call with the home side getting a slight advantage.

How to Watch:

Wednesday’s match between LA and RSL will be televised locally on Spectrum SportsNet and in the rest of the country on ESPN+. The broadcast is scheduled to start at 6:30 pm PT with kickoff to follow.
