The Galaxy’s 2-0 loss in Columbus earlier today (more on that later) has given Chivas USA the opportunity to pull within one point of their intrastadium rivals with two games in hand. But they need to win today to accomplish that.
Preki makes just one enforced change to the team that drew 0-0 with Seattle last time out, Carey Talley coming in for the suspended Marcelo Saragosa, shown a red card against the Sounders.
Chivas USA XI: Thornton, Talley, Bornstein, Cuesta, Jazic, Padilla, Lahoud, Nagamura, Kljestan, Braun, Santos.
Galindo and Lillingston are on the bench.
Preki will undoubtedly hope to finish the game with 11 men; Chivas USA has had players ejected for the last three games in a row.
Juan Pablo Angel leads the attack for the woeful Red Bulls.
The game is on Fox Soccer Channel.
