LA Galaxy will be hosting Montreal Impact on gameday 32 in the 2013 Major League Soccer.
The Galaxy is coming off a 5-0 spectacular in an "El Primer Clasico" win against CD Chivas USA.
Landon Donovan and company will be looking to start a winning run against the Impact.
Robbie Keane started the goalscoring party early in the 6th minute mark which was followed up by Landon Donovan with two and Gyasi Zardes.
Keane finished what he started when he placed the ball at the bottom left corner, assisted by Laurent Courtois, leaving Impact goalkeeper Dan Kennedy helpless.
Galaxy boss Bruce Arena was pleased with what his team has showed in spite of their inconsistent form.
"Since the AC Milan exhibition (a 2-0 loss in Miami, Fla., as part of the International Champions Cup), we have a record of 7-2-3," Arena told lagalaxy.com.
"Twenty-five goals for, 10 against. We haven't played poorly. Have we played as well as we would have liked? No."
"For the most part we've been a pretty solid team over the last 12 games and we need to continue that in our next four games to close out the season, then hopefully we're in position to be in the playoffs and play well and position ourselves to defend our MLS Cup."
Landon Donovan's ankle needs to be assessed in a last-minute fitness test, while key players Juninho and Omar Gonzalez are also doubtful to suit up.
Montreal is coming off a back-to-back loss but Arena remains cautious as he is well aware of what the Impacts are capable of doing in any given night.
"They've been a good team all year, they've been positioned for the Supporters' Shield for most the year," he said.
"They fell off a little lately, but depending on who they choose to use tomorrow they'll be difficult regardless."
Meanwhile, the Impact will look to bounce back from their recent setbacks which were decided by a solitary goal each.
"People might think that we are dead, and they are afraid because we've managed just one point in our last five games, but we believe," Impact boss Marco Schällibaum told impactmontreal.com.
"I think that after a little adversity, making the playoffs would be all the more sweet for us in the end."
Midfielder Patrice Bernier acknowledges the type of caliber that the Galaxy has and expressed his views, as to what his team should do to limit LA's flow on offence.
"LA is a great team, easily one of the top teams in the league moving the ball forward and we cannot take them lightly," said Bernier.
"We have to make sure that we don't give one inch away. We have to be creative in our movement and find the right people who score goals with good passes. We are a good team collectively and the individual performances stand out when the entire team performs."
Galaxy (4-4-2): Cudicini; Dunivant, Opare, Gonzalez, Franklin; Zardes, Sarvas, Juninho, Jimenez; Donovan, Keane
Impact (4-1-4-1): Perkins; Camara, Ferrari, Lefevre, Brovsky; Bernier; Wenger, Martins, Arnaud, Mapp; Vaio
