MLS WEEK 7 PREVIEW: COLORADO v LOS ANGELES

MLS WEEK 7 PREVIEW

COLORADO RAPIDS v LOS ANGELES GALAXY

Can anyone beat Buddle? Does anyone doubt Donovan? We will find out come Wednesday night if there is anyone that does, because this just might be the match the Galaxy drop. Make no mistake this is a game the Galaxy could lose.

A few reasons to back that claim up, one is that Colorado hasn’t lost at home yet this season. More than this the Galaxy struggle at Dick’s, they have yet to win there and have only scored once when visiting the Rapids. Worse they seem to have leaked goals in those appearances.

Let’s be honest, those were different Galaxy teams.

We are not going to see a ton of surprises in this match. Expect Omar Cummings and Conor Casey to get one goal apiece and look for Buddle to use his considerable size advantage over Marvell Wynne on crosses sent in from Landon Donovan.

This match has 2-2 written all over it, but I feel there is something in the stars… A red card… a crucial substitution… a game changing injury… a baffling judgment by the referee… whatever it is it could tip the balance either way.

FANTASY PICKS TO CLICK

COLORADO: Omar Cummings

LOS ANGELES: Edson (no brainer) Buddle

FANTASY X-FACTOR: Claudio Lopez, he may decide it late.

    for exactly the reasons you stated I am leaving Stephens out of my fantasy lineup this week.

    The one point I’ll add just a tad of contention on is Buddle vs Wynne in the box. While I have no doubt that Buddle will play well this match (has he given us any reason to doubt yet), I don’t think we can underestimate the physical strength of Wynne. While he may be lacking in size, he makes up for it in strength and speed in my opinion (not to mention the trollis/cro-magnon looks).

    Is there a Chi-Tor preview coming?
