Match preview

A truly pivotal fixture for both in the race to secure a Western Conference play-off place.

Of all teams currently outside the play-off places in the west, Real Salt Lake are, realistically, the only side capable of gatecrashing the top seven.

The Claret and Cobalt start the weekend eighth, two points behind Minnesota United with two to play.

Pablo Mastroeni’s side would be above the dotted line if they hadn’t lost at home to FC Cincinnati last time out, despite taking the lead through Maikel Chang.

That’s now back-to-back reverses for RSL, who are winless in four, having lost form at just the wrong time.

Given that, LA Galaxy know their post-season ticket will be signed, sealed and delivered should they win this one.

Greg Vanney’s team took a gigantic step towards a top-seven finish last weekend by beating San Jose Earthquakes at Stanford Stadium.

Javier Hernández’s brace, with Gastón Brugman netting in between, saw them race into a 3-0 lead, before ultimately clinging on for a 3-2 victory.

This means the Galaxy have now won successive California Clásicos on the road for the first time in 24 years.

Here, who will leave Dignity Health Sports Park with three priceless points?
