The Los Angeles Galaxy begin their quest to repeat as MLS Cup champions tonight when they take on the Vancouver Whitecaps in the Knockout Round match at Home Depot Center (10:30pm, NBC Sports).
The Galaxy overcame a terrible start to the season to reach the playoffs, and hit an outstanding second half that has them looking every bit like a title contender despite having to play in the wild card round. They will be heavily favored tonight against a Vancouver side that managed just one win on their last ten regular season matches.
The Whitecaps defense will be key to the visiting team’s chances tonight, having allowed just one goal in their past four matches. Jay DeMerit and Andy O’Brien will have the task of trying to slow down red-hot Robbie Keane and playmaking maestro Landon Donovan.
