The LA Galaxy have to play one of their toughest games of the season after their worst performance. Will the team show up for this one?

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy are getting ready for the biggest game of the 2019 regular season when they play host to Los Angeles Football Club on Friday.

For the home team, their recent Cali-Clasico loss is the worst way to be taking on the best team in MLS at the moment. And while Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists that all the pressure on LAFC, it’s clear that the Galaxy need one of their best showings of the season. And they’ll need to push against their most recent form.

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira, are getting you ready for the game by getting you through all the Galaxy news you need to hear before Friday!

They’ll start by reminding you about the All-Star Game and how that’s going to affect the travel scheduled of the only healthy DP’s the Galaxy have.

Next, the guys will dive into the injury list and tell you who won’t be available for selection, before getting into the latest Cristian Pavon and Galaxy rumors. Is the Argentine coming to LA? Or did the Galaxy finally get tired of waiting for Boca Juniors to come around on the original offer?

Then, the guys will give you the details on our El Trafico Ticket Contest (see the top of the page of rules), before Eric gives one of the most energetic game intro’s we’ve ever had. “We will not go quietly into the night…”

It’s a packed show that is just waiting for you. Can the Galaxy get the win against a top contender in the Western Conference and keep their cross-town rival winless against them?
