DID YOU KNOW?
  • The Galaxy won the first leg 1-0 in New Jersey. Former New York player Mike Magee scored the only goal.
  • Juninho and Rafa Marquez are suspended for this match after being ejected for participating in an unseemly - albeit amusing - brawl following the final whistle of the first leg.
  • David Beckham has an assist in three playoff matches in a row. The Englishman's contract with MLS expires at the end of the season, though both parties have talked positively about a possible extension. Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham have both made public passes at Beckham in recent weeks as well.
  • Los Angeles finished the regular season unbeaten at home. The Red Bulls earned a 1-1 draw from their regular season visit to the Home Depot Center.
  • Hilario Grajeda will referee the match.
