KC to Take on Preki and Chivas

The Wizards travel to LA to take on Chivas USA tomorrow. Chivas has yet to lose a home game this season, while the Wizards have yet to be defeated by Chivas in any game. Something is going to give this weekend most likely. Jesse Marsch will miss this match due to yellow card accumulation. The Wizards will be without Kurt Morsink.

Without Morsink, Coach Onalfo is going to have to switch up his lineup, as Morsink has started the past few games. Overall, though, I think the team will be fairly similar to the way they started against Columbus last weekend. I would like to see Eloy Colombano start, but I don't think he will.

Jewsbury - Conrad - Garcia - Burciaga
Arnaud - Marinelli - Victorine
Sealy - Johnson

The Wizards have struggled on the road this year, and Chivas is VERY good at home. Maykel Galindo and Ante Razov are clicking together up top, and their defense is very strong. I just don't see the Wizards being able to pull out 3 points in LA tomorrow night. I'd like to see KC win, but I'd be happy with a point on the road. In the end, though, I think the Wizards will drop all 3.

KC - 1 - (Johnson)
Chivas - 2 (Galindo, Nagamura)
