Update: Coach Preki's team can take over sole command of first place in the Western Conference tonight with a victory or a tie. Going in, Chivas is tied on 44 points with the Galaxy and the Houston Dynamo, who play each other in Texas on Sunday. Chivas also has one game in hand over its nearest division rivals and still has a chance to finish with the best record in MLS.
