The Chicago Fire and the Los Angeles Galaxy will face off on Friday in a high-profile Major League Soccer match with plenty of playoff implications.
Both teams sit second in their respective divisions, both on 41 points. However, only the Columbus Crew have sealed a playoff berth, so both clubs will be eager to join that list.
The Galaxy and Fire hold the two most well known players in the league in David Beckham and Cuauhtemoc Blanco. Neither of those players were in the press conference before the game, however.
Watch Goal.com's video of LA's Landon Donovan and Bruce Arena as well as the Fire's Brian McBride and Denis Hamlett discuss the upcoming game and its implications.
