GALAXY AT ISIDRO METAPAN
CONCACAF Champions League
When: 7 PDT.
Where: Estadio Jorge “Calero” Suarez, Metapan, El Salvador.
On the air: TV: Fox Soccer, Univision Deportes.
Champions League records: Galaxy 2-0-1, Metapan 1-2-0.
Record vs. Metapan: 1-0.
Update: This match is all but meaningless because the Galaxy has already won its group and qualified for next year’s CONCACAF Champions League semifinals. As a result, it is sending a team heavy in reserves; of those players making the trip to El Salvador, only midfielder Marcelo Sarvas and defender Tommy Meyer started Sunday’s MLS game in San Jose. Isidro Metapan, of El Salvador’s First Division, made it to the quarterfinals of the last Champions League before being eliminated but enters Thursday’s match last in its three-team group.
