LA Galaxy vs. Philadelphia Union

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

The boys in blue head to the "Left Coast" to face a side that also has not had quite the season they hoped for so far. The only difference is; Its the LA Galaxy.

The Philadelphia Union -after coming off a good old fashioned butt whooping at the hands of the New England Revolution, will now head west to play the LA Galaxy on Sunday night (8PM ET TV- UDN, CSN-PHI, TWCSN-LA) This match will not be for the faint of heart. Although the Galaxy are 3-3-3 and sit in sixth place in the Western Conference with 12 points, the Union on the other hand sit in ninth place in the East with 11 points. So when i say this match will not be for the faint of heart, don't expect a blowout from either side. This could wind up as a Sunday night snoozer.

Looking at the numbers of these two juggernauts starting with goals scored, the Union do have the edge here 15-10. But -and this is a big but, the Union have allowed a whopping 20 goals to the Galaxy's 8. Clearly this will be a huge test for the Union back line. Never mind about Zach MacMath here, this will be about that back line. As far as the rest of the stats, things look pretty even from here. So if the Union are to win or even come away with that coveted "road point," the defense will definitely need to step it up.

No, No, Chaco.

With Maidana out for this one due to a Red Card suspension against NE, John Hackworth will most likely have to do a little tweaking in the midfield. Hmmm, i wonder who.

Lets get Patriotic.

The last time the Union won in LA was on Independence Day back in 2012 2-1. As we observe memorial day this weekend, let's hope the Union can repeat that feat with another win.

The Union have a tough road ahead of them for sure. After LA, they will head home for a few, only to hop back on the plane to face Chivas USA in the same stadium, and then fly back home to face a tough Vancouver side.

Let's see if they have it in them.

As we enjoy the matches this Memorial Day weekend and the gathering with families and friends, be sure to take a moment of you time to remember the Men and Women who paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our Country. Let their bravery and acts of Valor never be forgotten.
