    Default LA Galaxy vs Xolos - CCL first leg

    LA GALAXY VS CLUB TIJUANA
    Wednesday, March 12th, 2014
    StubHub Center
    Kick-off: 7:00 p.m

    On Wednesday night the LA Galaxy will host Club Tijuana in the first leg of CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals. The Galaxy and Xolos come into Wednesday night’s game with completely different momentum, with the Galaxy losing this weekend and Tijuana defeating Chivas at home.
    With the Galaxy just beginning MLS competition this past weekend, there is no doubt that game fitness will be in Tijuana’s favor, as Liga MX is ten games into its season. While the Galaxy started off the local competition on the wrong foot at home against Real Salt Lake, Tijuana is not the powerful team it was in 2011 when they won the Liga MX championship. This season, Xolos have a 4-4-2 record, losing two out of their last four games. Perhaps Tijuana’s most impressive run was going 17 games unbeaten at home, a streak that was snapped after losing to Chiapas 3-0 a couple of weeks ago.

    I regret that I can't make the game tonight. It should be fun. I hear Tijuana is busing in quite a few fans for the game.

    And darn game is on Fox Soccer Plus so I can't tape it in english either.

    Phew is right. Man, the one that Penedo had to slap off the line! I didn't see until getting home and watching the highlights that it came off Omar. Also, Marcelo blocking that header off the line was huge.

    Now, I'm really glad we moved the DC game. Let's make this thing stand up and get into the semi-finals again!

    went to the game and boy did the Galaxy fans not show up, it was 80 percent Xolo fans and it was disappointing, Penedo stood on his head and I'm not confident with the Gs having to go to TJ with only a one goal lead, would have preferred an extra goal

    So this game against Tijuana is not an MLS game.... If you're a Galaxy Season ticket holder, is this included? Or is the Season Ticket only MLS games?

    It was the first leg of a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal. Season ticket holders get up to 4 bonus games per year, and this was one of those, so was included in season tickets.

    Good on them for including the extra games.

    An extra goal would have been nice, but the best thing was getting the clean sheet. All the pressure from Xolos came in the second half, so maybe the extra day off came into play for them? Tijuana also has 3 more matches on their season than the G's do.

    Galaxy have moved their scheduled MLS match against DC United from Saturday to August 27, so they will be well rested for the second leg, and it looks like Tijuana are keeping their Liga MX match against Cruz Azul on Saturday. Hopefully, this works in the Galaxy's favor. It's not in the bag, that's for sure, but they have been playing well so far.

    I also don't think the attendance was 80/20 Xolos, but the noise definitely was!

    I like having the extra games. Often, one of the games is a high-profile friendly. In the recent past, we've seen Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City, Spurs and Manchester United. Sometimes (but seldom), they have had to count one of those as two bonus games. Fine with me.
