After several weeks of waiting, Major League Soccer will resume its actions. Soccer returns in the United States and it will return nothing more and nothing less than with the great Traffic Classic between Los Angeles Galaxy and LAFC for this Saturday, February 25. Carlos Vela will lead the current tournament champion against a galactic group that could have the sensitive loss of Javier Hernández.
The match will take place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Los Angeles. Both teams will start the MLS after an arduous preseason. Los Angeles Galaxy come to this game after having lost three games in their preseason and having won two. In the case of Los Ángeles FC, Carlos Vela’s team reaped two wins and only one loss.
However, one of the news that attracts the most attention is the possible loss of Chicharito Hernández for the opening match. The reports indicate that this Tuesday the Mexican suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury in his right leg. Under these circumstances, Javier Hernández would be completely ruled out in the lead of the Galaxy.
The Traffic Classic has a reserved prognosis. In recent years there has been a lot of parity between these two teams. In the last five duels between the Los Angeles Galaxy and LAFC there are two wins for each plus a draw.
