Bruce Arena is going with the same lineup that beat the Sounders in Seattle for the Sunday's second-leg clash at Home Depot Center, which just kicked off.
That means veteran Eddie Lewis (Cerritos/Cerritos HS and UCLA) is in at left back in place of Todd Dunivant. Lewis was superb as a last-minute starter in last week's first leg after Dunivant pulled out with a hamstring strain.
Dunivant trained all week and was ready to go, but Arena decided to stick with a winning formula.
Only one, expected change by Seattle, with Tyrone Marshall stepping into central defense in place of Jeff Parke, who sprained his ankle in last week's game.
Galaxy: G Donovan Rickets; D Sean Franklin, Omar Gonzalez, A.J. DeLaGarza and Eddie Lewis; M David Beckham, Juninho, Dema Kovalenko and Landon Donovan; F Edson Buddle and Mike Magee.
Seattle Sounders: G Kasey Keller; D James Riley, Tyrone Marshall, Patrick Ianni and Leo Gonzalez; M Sanna Nyassi, Osvaldo Alonso, Nathan Sturgis and Steve Zakuani; F Fredy Montero and Blaise Nkufo.
