This morning Chivas USA had a light training session in preparation for their game tomorrow night at the Home Depot Center versus Columbus Crew.

When asked about their strategies for tomorrow’s game Vasquez said “[Columbus] has three or four weapons that are very dangerous and effective and overall they’re a very good team. They are a group that has been together for the last three years at least, so they have a good understanding of [each other].”

Despite the strength of Columbus Crew, Vasquez believes Chivas USA will have a good chance of winning if they continue to put up a strong defensive front. “One of the things that we have done well is defending and if we are able to defend well against them and close down their key players and try to shut down their dangerous weapons… that’s going to make a difference, us putting our chances away, and us being a disciplined and difficult team to play against.”
