The LA Galaxy survived an Open Cup scare against a third division side and will now get to host LAFC in the next Open Cup game. It’s going to be huge!
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Were you embarrassed by the LA Galaxy and their victory over a third division team? Or is it part of the magic of the cup – surviving these early rounds to get to the games that actually matter?
And what happens when a US Open Cup midweek game in May just became the most crucial game of the month for the Galaxy? We’re telling you why a US Open Cup El Trafico will be the biggest game in the country.
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira want to get you ready for FC Dallas this weekend. But in order to do that, they’ll need to tell you about the victory over California United Strikers and about the wacky Open Cup draw that now sees the Galaxy just four games from a trophy.
The guys will start with the almost expectedly flat performance against a third division team and why Greg Vanney had the entire team at a small field in Orange County to witness a 3-2 win.
But when Josh and Eric look at the matchup with FC Dallas, do they see an even game? Or do they see a game that might give Dallas an edge? Will it be the battle of two great defenses? Or is Dallas relying on their offense on top of having a really solid defense?
This could be an ugly game. And if it is ugly, is that because the Galaxy are taking Dallas out of their game?
