The SuperClásico is just around the corner, and we want to give you the low down on what you should expect when you arrive at the stadium because you wouldn’t miss the biggest game of the season, right? So come down to The Home Depot Center this Saturday, May 19 to watch Chivas USA take on the LA Galaxy at 7:30 p.m.
IT’S THE SUPERCLASICO: Do you need any more reasons? The history to this rivalry goes way back to, um, 2005. The Red-and-White have started off on the wrong foot, but eventually picked back up when the Goats took their first victory on June 8, 2006 by defeating the Galaxy 2-1. But come 2007, the rivalry sizzled as former Chivas USA midfielder Jesse Marsch welcomed newly acquired David Beckham to his first SuperClásico. And in case you’re wondering, Chivas USA defeated the Galaxy 3-0. Oh, you missed it? Relive it:
