After a 2-0 win at home last weekend, the Colorado Rapids are heading to the west coast to take on the LA Galaxy. The Rapids are just three points behind Western Conference leaders FC Dallas (though we have two games in hand), and L.A. is four points behind the Rapids in the standings (and tied with Real Salt Lake for third), so both teams are going to be working hard to win this game.
The Rapids are 1-0-1 against the Galaxy this season, and even though we could still be missing Jermaine Jones, Galaxy superstar Robbie Keane is questionable for the game today after smashing his face in a collision last week against the New York Red Bulls. The other top goal scorer for LA Galaxy, Giovani dos Santos, sat out two games and then subbed into the last game with a chest injury, is expected to start. LA Galaxy is on an eight game unbeaten streak, and haven’t lost a game since June 18.
