Cameron Dunbar enters the XI for LA, otherwise it looks like the same group we saw over the weekend.

New game, same road venue for the LA Galaxy on Wednesday, when they’ll take on Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium, LA’s second game in a row in Utah.
The Galaxy lost 2-1 to the Vancouver Whitecaps at the RioT over the weekend, slowly collapsing down the stretch after taking an early 1-0 lead. Some fans were upset by the Galaxy’s performance, and while I wouldn’t tell anyone how to feel and it certainly wasn’t a great night for the team, I think a shorthanded team playing on the road can have off nights sometimes and that’s what I think happened here. Can they turn the page and get a better result this time around?
They’re taking on an RSL team that’s been all over the place this year, most recently losing 2-1 to LAFC last weekend in LA. RSL didn’t play great in that game, but they nearly earned a draw, and they didn’t play terribly, either. Befitting a pretty young team, they are inconsistent, but I think that makes them dangerous — I can see them winning games 4-0, losing games 4-0 and everything in between.
Sebastian Lletget, Jonathan dos Santos, Efrain Alvarez, Oniel Fisher and Giancarlo Gonzalez remain on international duty and are out for this game, and Chicharito also remains out injured. Both Sega Coulibaly and Rayan Raveloson are listed questionable. Meanwhile, Jeizon Ramirez, Andrew Brody and Zack Farnsworth are listed out for RSL.
According to our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Wednesday afternoon, LA are (+280), RSL are (+100) and a draw is at (+265). So the Galaxy are narrow underdogs on the road this time around
How to Watch:
