Training Trinidad & Tobago-style: The Galaxy are hard at work preparing for their pivotal CONCACAF Champions League game tonight in the Caribbean where the temperature is in the low 90s (Photo by Robert Mora for the LA Galaxy).
The Galaxy looked sluggish to say the least against Montreal last weekend and the team is trying to get off a two-game winless streak when it faces Real Salt Lake tonight at 6:30 p.m. The game is televised on Time Warner Cable Sports and Time Warner Cable Deportes with radio on 980 AM and1330 AM. Here are links to get you ready for the game:
The LA Galaxy struggled to get any offense going at home, a place they’ve dominated in the past few months, in a 0-0 draw with Montreal on Saturday. Here’s a recap of the match with leftover quotes, notes and links.
The Galaxy are urging fans to get to Saturday’s MLS game early with limited tickets remaining and a capacity crowd expected.
From the Galaxy press release:
Due to expected heavy traffic and congested streets for the competition, all fans that do not arrive by 6:30 p.m. PT risk missing the start of the match. With a capacity crowd expected Saturday for the evening fixture, fans are also encouraged to carpool to StubHub Center for the match.
While spaces are available, fans are able to tailgate in select StubHub Center lots before the match, starting at 9:00 a.m. PT through Gates A and D. All other parking gates will open at 4:30 p.m. PT.
And while most fans will be there to see dos Santos, let’s not overlook a certain Chelsea veteran who was named MLS Player of the Week after his three-goal outburst in his MLS debut for the Montreal Impact.
