Los Angeles Galaxy, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 2-3 Open Cup triumph over California United Strikers.

Team News: Los Angeles Galaxy
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Los Angeles Galaxy gaffer Greg Vanney to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Adam Saldaña (Ankle Injury) will miss out.
It’s our opinion that The Galactics look set to make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Jonathan Bond, Julian Araujo, Sega Coulibaly, Derrick Williams, Raheem Edwards, Rayan Raveloson, Marco Delgado, Kévin Cabral, Efrain Álvarez, Douglas Costa and Javier Hernandez.
Team News: FC Dallas
Owing to a fully healthy group available to select from, the FC Dallas boss Nico Estévez doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever before this clash.
From our viewpoint, Toros will likely utilise a 4-3-3 lineup, settling for Maarten Paes, Ema Twumasi, Matt Hedges, Edwin Munjoma, Marco Farfan, Paxton Pomykal, Facundo Quignon, Tsiki Ntsabeleng, Paul Arriola, Jesús Ferreira and Alan Velasco.
In our opinion, FC Dallas will have their work cut out to get anything against this Los Angeles Galaxy outfit who we reckon should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 win for Los Angeles Galaxy at full-time.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
