Los Angeles Galaxy vs Philadelphia Union Match Preview
The Philadelphia Union will be looking for their third straight win when they travel to face the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday night.
Philadelphia have won their first two games of the season without conceding a goal, while LA will be hoping to bounce back from being beaten 4-1 at Real Salt Lake last weekend.
Star midfielder Landon Donovan will return for the Galaxy after missing last week’s defeat due to international duty. Defender Gregg Berhalter is sidelined with injury for the Galaxy, while Donovan Ricketts will have a hamstring injury assessed ahead of kickoff.
Galaxy midfielder David Beckham will be going up against Union goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon, the man he scored against on his World Cup debut 13 years ago.
Justin Mapp is questionable with a hamstring injury for the Union, while Carlos Valdes and Danny Califf will shake off minor knocks in time to play.
