Galaxy (4-3-9) at Chivas USA (8-4-3)

David Beckham returned to Southern California Friday, but after making an appearance in El Segundo today with former Real Madrid teammate Zinedine Zidane will watch from the AEG suite.

That means the Galaxy make just one change to the unit that beat New England 1-0 last time out with Landon Donovan returning from national team duty to take his usual spot in midfield at the exprense of Eddie Lewis.

Galaxy XI: Josh Saunders, A.J. DeLagarza, Gregg Berhalter, Omar Gonzalez, Todd Dunivant, Jovan Kirovski, Mike Magee, Stefani Miglioranzi, Donovan, Edson Buddle, Alecko Eskandarian.

Chivas USA switch things around a little more as Preki attempts to get their season back on track after just one win in their last six MLS games.

Former Galaxy man Sasha Victorine replaces Mariano Trujillo (who is coming back from injury and may not be good to go a full 90 minutes) at right back, while Sacha Kljestan returns in midfield. His presence dislodges Atiba Harris from midfield, who moves into attack in place of Eduardo Lillingston, who is on the bench.

Chivas USA lineup: Zach Thornton, Victorine, Jonathan Bornstein, Ante Jazic, Carey Talley, Kljestan, Jesse Marsch, Paulo Nagamura, Bojan Stepanovic, Maykel Galindo, Atiba Harris.

The game is on Fox Soccer Channel.
