It's rivalry week in MLS on the weekend soccer TV schedule with the California clasico on Sunday. The Premier League has a national game on ESPN on Sunday with Manchester United playing Leicester City. Plenty of options from Europe with Fox Sports offering lots of Bundesliga coverage.
LA Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes at 7pm on Sunday on FS1. The Galaxy need something to try to kick start their season, and a rivalry week win over San Jose might be enough to do it. LA is 9th in the Western Conference with San Jose in 7th-place. Both are on the outside looking in at the playoff positions, with San Jose two points behind Vancouver for the final spot. The Galaxy lost 2-0 at Columbus on Wednesday and will be without Ashley Cole due to a red card. It might have been worse for San Jose, losing 4-0 at Real Salt Lake with Anibal Godoy seeing red.
"I need a few guys to step up and be louder on the field,"" LA coach Sigi Schmid said. "Last year, the team had a great leader in Robbie Keane and right now, there’s a little bit of a void especially down the middle of the field. You need guys to step up and say, 'I'm in charge here.'"
