Given the predicament Chivas USA finds itself at this stage of the season and what happened the last time these two mismatched teams met, if you were the Goats FO how would you sell this game to fans?

How about this (an actual line from the club game notes): “Chivas come into the game needing every point they can take if they are to stay alive in the playoff chase.”

Um, yeah.

Our sister newspaper The San Jose Mercury News has a more realistic game preview.
