The LA Galaxy will also have no easy task when they take on another playoff hopeful in FC Dallas on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. ET (ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, and TSN2). After downing the Red Bulls 4-1, the LA Galaxy scored another emphatic win over the weekend, beating Toronto FC by 3-0. The game held historical significance as Landon Donovan broke the MLS all-time assist record. On the opposite side of fortune, FC Dallas enter the game following a tough loss to the Whitecaps. Óscar Pareja will look to his dynamic scoring duo of Blas Perez and Fabian Castillo to upend the Galaxy’s back line. In the two team’s most recent matchup, goals from Robbie Keane and Alan Gordon helped the Galaxy secure a 2-1 win.
Toronto FC will be the busiest of the playoff hopefuls as they play twice this week. The team will welcome the Houston Dynamo to BMO Field on Wednesday (7:30 p.m. ET; TSN) and then travel to the Tri-State area to take on the New York Red Bulls on Saturday (7:00 p.m. ET; UDN and TSN). A win on Wednesday could see Toronto come within a point of the Red Bulls before their clash.
