[18th-Apr-15] Match Preview: Los Angeles Galaxy – Sporting Kansas City
LA are without keeper Brian Perk, who is out for the season with a broken ankle while midfielders Kenney Walker, Jose Villarreal, forward Robbie Keane, and defender Leonardo are all questionable for the match. Kansas City defensive pair of Chance Myers and Ike Opara are out until the summer, while midfielder Graham Zusi, James Rodgers, and defender Seth Sinovic are questionable for the fixture.

Background

LA are coming off of beating their main Western Conference rivals in Seattle just last weekend and sit one spot out of the playoffs. SKC having move to the West are not finding life too difficult so far, notching 2 wins and 3 draws in their 6 games. SKC can launch themselves as major Western Conference contenders with a win on Saturday.

Head-To-Head

LA come into the game off an almost record setting performance from main goalkeeper Jamie Penedo, who made 10 in their 1-0 win over Seattle. LA has not won in Kansas City since 2007.
SKC's unbeaten streak is now up to 4 games after racking up their 3rd clean sheet on the season in a 0-0 draw with Real Salt Lake last weekend. Kansas City have not beaten LA since 2010 and they've lost the last two games at the Stub Hub Arena.
Prediction: More of the same. SKC might nab a draw with Robbie Keane out however.
LA 1-1 SKC

@CitySarajevo Eh, maybe. That's one was you could look at it. I think they put the rest on the league on notice that they're back.

@GermanBumbleBee Very good point. LA could be rolling the league once he's around.
