Galaxy AT FC DALLAS When: 4:30 PDT. Where: FC Dallas Stadium. On the air: TV: NBC Sports; Radio: 1150. Records: Galaxy 2-0-2; FC Dallas 4-1-1. Record vs. FC Dallas (2012): 2-0-1. Update: Having been eliminated in the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals, the Galaxy returns to Major League Soccer action against FC Dallas, which sits atop the Western Conference standings. The Galaxy, in third place in the conference, should have all of its starting players available, although Landon Donovan — still building his strength after a lengthy hiatus — might not play the full 90 minutes as he did Wednesday in the second game of the two-leg CONCACAF series against Monterrey.

When: 7:30. Where: Home Depot Center. On the air: TV: None; Radio: 690. Records: Chivas USA 3-1-1, Rapids 1-3-2. Record vs Rapids (2012): 0-2-1. Update: After overhauling its roster and naming a new coach in the off-season, Chivas USA was expected to struggle early this season. But through five games, the team has been surprisingly strong and sits second in the West behind FC Dallas. Chivas USA's record includes a tie with the Galaxy, winner of the last two Major League Soccer titles, on March 17. The Rapids are off to a poor start but are coming off their first win of the season, 1-0 over Real Salt Lake.

Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Steward Ceus made the MLS highlights Saturday night for all the wrong reasons. Ceus and the Rapids were on the road in a season-opening game against FC Dallas when only 10 minutes into the game he made a decision to come off the goal line to track down a deep pass toward Colorado's 18-yard box. Now, we've all seen players -- from baseball to basketball -- whiff on catching a grounder or collecting a pass....

Two UCLA players were among the Top 20 picks in Major League Soccer's two-round SuperDraft on Thursday: Bruin midfielder Fernando Monge is going to the Montreal Impact with the second-to-last pick of the first round, while midfielder Ryan Hollingshead went to FC Dallas with the first pick of the second round. Cal State Bakersfield defender Kory Kindle was the 25th player taken overall, going to the Colorado Rapids. Monge, an all-conference selection from Seattle, was second on the team in minutes played this season, starting all 19 of UCLA's games, scoring five times and adding an assist.

When: 4. Where: FC Dallas Stadium, Frisco, Texas. On the air: TV: Galavision. Records: Chivas USA 7-18-8, FC Dallas 9-13-11. Record vs. FC Dallas: 0-0-2. Update: There's little more than pride on the line in this one because FC Dallas was eliminated from playoff contention last week and Chivas USA, winless since July 28, is guaranteed of finishing last in the Western Conference. Still, Chivas probably has more to play for since second-year Coach Robin Fraser is widely expected to be let go after the game.

Remember the Galaxy team that ran roughshod over the rest of Major League Soccer on its way to an MLS Cup title last season? Well, it's back. And after Sunday's methodical 2-0 win over FC Dallas in front of a sun-drenched Home Depot Center crowd of 21,933, an argument could be made that the team is as good as ever. "I've heard that from a lot of people. Which is good to hear," said defender Todd Dunivant, who scored the second goal Sunday. "Obviously, you don't want to be living in the past.
