GICC LA Galaxy vs. AC Milan Battle For Third Place Preview
Los Angeles – The LA Galaxy will be going head to head with AC Milan for third place in the Guinness International Champions Cup Wednesday August 7th 2013 in Miami Florida. The LA Galaxy won their spot after convincingly defeating Juventus three – nil at Dodger Stadium while AC Milan lost to Chelsea FC two – nil at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
The LA Galaxy were in full force with the return of injured Robbie Keane and Robbie Rogers as well as Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez who were off on national duty followed by the MLS All-Star match against AS Roma. The LA Galaxy will have all of their players available as no one suffered any new injuries in their victory against Juventus.
AC Milan will unfortunately be without forward Robson de Souza “Robinho” due to a groin injury he picked up in the match against Valencia. Robinho is one of only two players to score in the two matches Milan has participated in so far in the GICC tournament.
The LA Galaxy will need to prepare the defense to deal with the speed of Mario Balotelli and the fancy footwork of Stephan El Shaarawy.
Milan on the other hand will need to focus on the many different threats that the LA Galaxy dispose of, whom will be coming at them from the left, right and down the middle. So far in this tournament the LA Galaxy have seen four different players find the back of the net including teenager Jose Villareal, Omar Gonzalez, Landon Donovan and Robbie Keanne.
Expect another very physical match in Miami involving a few yellow cards as the LA Galaxy are not ones to back down from a physical contest and Milan finding themselves very frustrated over their current results.
