Tigres disposed of the Suwon Bluewings on the strength of three first half goals, two from Jose Fonseca and one from Walter Gaitan in the opening game.
Now it’s on to the main event.
There are two changes to the Galaxy’s starting line-up from the Tigres game earlier in the week: Peter Vagenas is on the bench, while Chris Klein isn’t on the roster at all. In come Cobi Jones and striker Alan Gordon.
And yes, David Beckham is on the bench, but he did not participate in the pre-match warm-up.
Chelsea starts John Terry, Tal Ben Haim, Richard Carvalho and Paulo Ferreira in defense.
New signing Florent Malouda as well as Frank Lampard and Michael Essien comprise the midfield.
Up top: Shaun Wright-Phillips, Salomon Kalou and Didier Drogba.
