Practice Report

By Chivas USA Communications

Chivas USA held a fast-paced, physical practice this morning at The Home Depot Center’s Field 6 – complete with an inter-squad workout. Left back Ante Jazic and midfielder Oswaldo Minda remained absent from practice as they return from completing their participation with their respective national teams. Starting center back, Danny Califf, was held out of practice for precautionary reasons and is listed as questionable because of a right hamstring. 

 
The Goats are gearing up for Saturday night’s third and final meeting with Western Conference rival, the San Jose Earthquakes, on Mexican Independence and African Heritage celebration night. The clubs played to a draw in the first meeting, with the Quakes taking the last meeting. Chivas USA holds the all-time series edge 6-4-5 and since 2008 have lost just twice in 11 matches against San Jose.
