Well it is just a bit before game time and here is the match thread that I will be updating via SB Nation iphone/ipad app during the match via the comments section. You can add you comments online or via the app if you want to voice your thoughts and opinions.
This is almost a must win match for both teams, as Chivas look to stay alive in the playoff hunt and as RSL look to secure one of the top 3 spots in the West and avoid the wildcard playoff system. Here is your starting XI for RSL:
Nick Rimando, Robbie Russell, Jamison Olave, Nat Borchers, Tony Beltran, Arturo Alvarez, Kyle Beckerman, Luis Gil, Will Johnson, Fabian Espindola and Alvaro Saborio.
The bench for RSL will be: Tim Meila, Blake Wagner, Chris Schuler, Jean Alexandre, Collen Warner, Paulo Jr.
For Chivas USA it will be Dan Kennedy, Ante Jazic, Heath Pearce, Michael Umana, David Junior Lopes, Jorge, Flores Blair Gavin, Simon Elliot, Nick LaBrocca, Juan Pablo Angel, and Alejandro Moreno
On their bench are: Zach Thornton, Justin Braun, Ben Zemanski, Laurent Courtois, Marian Trujillo, Chris Cortez, and thankfully Marcos Mondaini
This will be an emotional match with a lot of undertones left over from the May match that saw Javier Morales taken out. So keep track and follow the comments.
