This Wednesday afternoon, Chivas Guadalajara will visit Los Angeles Galaxy at SoFi Stadium in the Californian town of Inglewood, in a match that will raise the curtain on the Leagues Cup 2022 Showcase and will also fulfill the childhood dream of one of the main figures of the galactic franchise by facing ‘El Rebaño’ for the first time in his career, who is obviously not Javier Chicharito Hernández.
The Rebaño Sagrado's first team, for its part, completed its quick preparation on Tuesday for this match against the Galaxy and will be played at a full house at SoFi Stadium as all the tickets have been sold out. The Leagues Cup 2022 Showcase will be followed by Los Angeles FC's match against América.
