Saturday Soccer: LA Galaxy at Vancouver Whitecaps & more

    • The Galaxy face the recently verbally assaulted Whitecaps in Vancouver (4 p.m. TWC) and could have key players back. Do you remember last year’s game in the Canadian city? Inglewood’s Jose Villarreal does.
    • There’s little doubt Chivas USA need reinforcements. But do they need them in the form of yet another young (20) player on loan from CD Guadalajara?
    • However, Peruvian defender Walter Vílchez, who started Chivas USA’s first two games of the season before suffering a knee injury, has returned to full training and could be available for Sunday’s road game against the Timbers in Portland, according to the club.
    • One who won’t play in the game is Chivas USA midfielder Carlos Alvarez, suspended by MLS for two games and fined an undisclosed amount for violent conduct during last weekend’s game  against Sporting Kansas City for kicking the ball at an opponent’s head. He will miss Sunday’s game in Portland and the May 19 game against Real Salt Lake.
