If you’re still reeling from the last minute, last gasp drama of last night’s regional World Cup qualifying games (you’re welcome, Mexico), take a deep breath as we return to the comparatively calm waters of MLS tonight when the Galaxy take on the flailing Montreal Impact at StubHub Center.
The visitors are losers of three straight home games and are winless in five, yet the banged up Galaxy (will Juninho return?), edging toward a playoff spot, are unlikely to feel much of a sense of superiority against a team they have met just once (and never in Carson).
Montreal received a boost Tuesday with word their designated player will stick around for another season, but it’s this one that still hangs in the balance for both teams.
The Galaxy can’t afford to look past Montreal at this stage of the season especially with a much-improved San Jose lurking in Sunday’s home finale.
