La Liga champion Real Madrid, led by striker Cristiano Ronaldo, will visit the Home Depot Center on Aug. 2 to meet the defending Major League Soccer champion Galaxy in an international friendly. The game is part of this summer's World Football Challenge, an exhibition tournament matching top clubs from Europe with MLS teams. As part of the series Chelsea of the English Premier League will meet eight-time French Cup winner Paris Saint-Germain of France's Ligue 1 on July 22 in the first-ever soccer match at the new Yankee Stadium. Real Madrid, which reached the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League before losing to Bayern Munich on penalty kicks, clinched its first Spanish league title since 2008 with a win over Athletic Bilbao last week.

Congratulations to the Galaxy on the MLS championship! As for ABC ... well, go figure. It spent $100 million for the World Cup but can't give 15 minutes for the MLS Cup trophy presentation. RICHARD LACEY Torrance Maybe I got lost in my own city, but I was vainly trying to locate the parade route on Figueroa on Tuesday for the L.A. Galaxy for winning the MLS championship. I tried Pico on Wednesday, and La Cienega on Thursday. No luck. Maybe I'll try Rosecrans on Sunday.

Davy Arnaud scored one goal and created another Saturday night, and goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen made two exceptional saves as the Kansas City Wizards defeated the Galaxy, 2-0, at the Home Depot Center. The loss was the second in a row for Coach Bruce Arena's suddenly slumping team and the fourth in six games in what has been an abysmal August for the league leader. The Galaxy has lost seven of its last 11 games in all competitions, including the U.S. Open Cup, the CONCACAF Champions League and a friendly against Real Madrid.
