While their crosstown rivals already might have the metaphorical etching tool out for the MLS Cup, the Galaxy are far com going quietly into the night - with a five-goal haul against the Whitecaps last time out showcasing their strength once again.

Against an out-of-form Seattle side, they may fancy their prospects of pulling off another victory this weekend too.

Predicted Galaxy starting XI: Bond; Araujo, Zavaleta, DePuy, Edwards; Cabral, Delgado, Kljestan, Grandsir; Chicharito, Vazquez.

Seattle might be the Champions League holders - but will their continental success cost one of MLS' finest heavyweights on the domestic front this term?

Just one win from their last five matches has caught them in yet another major rut away from their exploits in gathering the biggest prize - and they need to reverse their fortunes to stay in the hunt for a postseason place.

Predicted Seattle starting XI: Frei; A. Roldan, Gomez, Arreaga, Tolo; Rowe, Rusnak; C. Roldan, Lodeiro, Morris; Ruidiaz.
