MLS: LA Galaxy vs. Houston Dynamo (Western Conference Final)
The Houston Dynamo and the Los Angeles Galaxy will battle it out tonight (11 pm ET) at the Home Depot Center in a one-game match, with the winners going on to Major League Soccer‘s Championship Cup Final next week.
This will be a very interesting match because the Galaxy and Dynamo have been the top two teams in the Western Conference all season and boast of records that are almost equal.
Los Angeles has a strong and well balanced squad featuring big names like Landon Donovan and David Beckham, while Houston features the trio of Brian Ching, Stuart Holden and Ricardo Clark, teammates on the U.S. national team.
Ching, who was sent off after an argument with the former England captain in last month’s draw, has said that he is looking forward to a repeat of their dispute.
“We had a feisty match-up and I’m expecting the same. We’ve to limit Becks’ time on the ball. It’ll be a battle,” The Sun quoted Ching, as saying.
Regardless of the result, this will be the last MLS match played at the Home Depot Center this year and these two teams are certainly going out with a bang.
UPDATE: Beckham helped his Galaxy side move a step closer the MLS title with a 2-0 victory over Houston. Watch the game highlights below:
