MLS Week 11 Predictions - Thursday

Wondering what to do to pass the hours before the Cup starts tomorrow? Why not watch a soccer match.

The battle for LA known as the Súper Clásico sees its second version tonight and ESPN2 will broadcast it live.

LA Galaxy vs. Chivas USA
Thursday - 10:00pm ET
Rasio: LA: CASH 1700am, KMXE 830am (Spanish - Galaxy), KTNQ 1020am (Spanish - Chivas)

The Galaxy comes into this match riding a 6 game losing streak and a hard week of shakeups. New coach Frank Yallop will have had about 30-hours to meet his new team. On the other side of the ball, Chivas is on a two game roll and currently sit above LA by 3 points in the Western table.

The Galaxy has had nothing going right for a while now, but first games for coaches have this habit of causing poor teams to over perform. Call it trying to impress the new guy and some other kind of psychological boost, but that is the normal order of things. For the Goats, if they can get an early goal and control the first 20-minutes of the game, they might just be able to counter-act this new coach magic.

Chivas should win this game as they have been able to get both good offensive and defensive performances on the pitch, but can they actually do it against LA? If they do, it will be their first win over the Galaxy.

Me: LA 1-1 Chivas
Wife: LA 2-0 Chivas
