Up next for the Galaxy: Saturday vs. FC Dallas

Saturday's matchup at Home Depot Center could settle the battle for the top spot in the MLS Western Conference, as the Los Angeles Galaxy takes on FC Dallas.

August 06, 2011

When: 7:30 PDT.

Where: Home Depot Center, Carson.

On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; radio: 1150.

Records: Galaxy 12-3-9; Dallas 12-5-6.

Record vs. Dallas: 0-1-0.

Update: The fight for the top spot in the Western Conference standings could be settled with the outcome of this game. The Galaxy holds a three-point edge over FC Dallas. If Dallas prevails, the teams would be tied at 45 points, with Dallas holding both the head-to-head advantage and one less game played, meaning one extra chance to grab points in the coming weeks. In its past 21 MLS matches, the Galaxy has lost only twice: 3-0 to Portland on Wednesday and 2-1 to Dallas on May 1. To avoid its first losing streak of the season, the Galaxy will need to contain Dallas forward Brek Shea, who is third in the league with nine goals.
