MLS June 8-9
LOS ANGELES GALAXY v CHIVAS USA
The Los Angeles Galaxy return home suffering through the most uncharacteristic of seasons - their club-record scoreless streak (just shy of the MLS record) was ended last weekend, but their club-record losing run is now six games after a 2-1 loss to Houston Dynamo. The recent run cost Steve Sampson his job this week after less than two years in charge. In addition, the Galaxy have yet to win a home game this season - their lone win at The Home Depot Center came earlier this year against Chivas USA, in the first meeting between the clubs, a Chivas home game. This time the "visitors", Chivas come into the game riding the first winning streak in club history, their 3-1 win against Colorado on Saturday following a victory against Chicago Fire the weekend before - with both matches played at home.

ALL-TIME (5 meetings): Galaxy 5 wins (0 shootout), 10 goals ... Chivas USA 0 wins (0 shootout), 2 goals ... 0 draws
GALAXY HOME GAME: (2 meetings): Galaxy 2 wins (0 shootout), 5 goals ... Chivas USA 0 wins (0 shootout), 1 goal ... 0 draws
L.A. Galaxy with a terrible situation with injuried, banned and absentees for the matches of World Cup 2006. Poor soccer played and without important results in latest match. Not sure Chivas wins this match, but i'm sure not lose it.
