The Los Angeles Galaxy vs Xolos Tijuana CONCACAF Champions League match will be played this Wednesday, March 12, 2014 (7:00 PM Pacific) at the Stub Hub Center. This clash labeled as a ‘California classic’ is the most noteworthy match in the first-leg of the CCL quarterfinals. Southern California’s Galaxy will attempt to defend their home against a fierce Liga MX rival like Baja California’s Xolos.
The team coached by Bruce Arena is ready to host their south of the border rivals this Wednesday night. LA Galaxy is not yet in full season form, as only last weekend they kicked-off their MLS 2014 at home in a loss against Real Salt Lake. In that match, Galaxy played a good game, although they missed too many chances in front of the goal. Against Club Tijuana, the MLS side will attempt to show their best form, although they will face a difficult opponent who wants nothing other than a win.
Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente have not played in the same form as the team that Antonio Mohamed lead to the championship in the Apertura 2012, or like the team which was one penalty kick away from defeating Atletico Mineiro in the Copa Libertadores 2013 quarterfinals. However, one thing this team still holds, is their will and dream to make Xolos into a noteworthy and prestigious name in the world of soccer. In order to fulfill that goal, Xolos must win the series against Galaxy in order to remain alive in their quest for the Concachampions final.
The team coached by Cesar Farias has been irregular in their Clausura 2014 season, where they have 14 points after ten matches and sit in 8th place. The border team has also not won a single away match since their 3-2 victory against Victoria from Honduras in the CCl last August 20th. Nonetheless, Xolos will play with all their force to obtain a win at the StubHub Center, and they have the weapons to accomplish that.
