Much like the Houston Dynamo, the LA Galaxy hold an advantage on aggregate goals going into the second leg on the road. And just like Houston, they will be looking to make a return trip to the MLS Cup final in two weeks for the second consecutive season.
They will be doing so, however, with a much different squad than the one they sent out onto Home Depot Center last weekend, as Landon Donovan will be held out of tonight’s match. Juninho will also not be featured in the starting lineup, but he will be eligible to come off the bench as a substitute.
Meanwhile, Seattle will welcome Eddie Johnson back to the starting lineup, as he will start up top with Fredy Montero, who is still looking for his first career MLS playoff goal. Midfielder and captain Mauro Rosales will not be in the starting lineup, but has been added to the Sounders bench so he could make an appearance tonight.
