Columbus Crew-Chivas USA at Home Dept Center

Looks like they’ve resodded part of the field after Cal State Dominguez Hills graduation ceremonies tore it up in places.

Chivas USA (3-4-2) fields an unchanged starting lineup for the first time this season:
goalkeeper Brad Guzan; defenders Cary Talley, Bobby Burling, Jim Curtin and Francisco Mendoza; midfielders Sacha Kljestan, Jesse Marsch, Paulo Nagamura; forwards Justin Braun, Jorge Flores and Atiba Harris.

Flores and Harris are expected to play wide, almost as wingers, with Kljestan tucking in behind the strikers.

Defenders Claudio Suarez and Shavar Thomas are on the bench, as is striker Ante Razov.

Maykel Galindo misses his third successive game through injury, one of eight starters on a still extensive injury list.

Crew Coach Sigi Schmid also names an unchanged lineup that includes Rolling Hills Estates’ Robbie Rogers in midfield (five MLS goals), former Galaxy duo Alejandro Moreno and Ezra Hendrickson and Argentine veteran Guillermo Barros Schelotto. The Crew are 6-2-1.

The game is on FSN.

The game is on FSN and in Spanish on Channel 54, as part of Chivas USA’s new 10-game local Spanish-language TV package.
