Champions League Preview: One of Pro Sport's Unlikeliest Battles, Metapan of El Salvador vs. the L.A. Galaxy

Americanize Soccer at related • 0 views
This is the kind of match that only pro Soccer can host. A team representing one of the largest, most modern metro areas in the world, Los Angeles, takes on a team coming from a second-world country of a town of 19,000 people. Metapan of El Salvador would seem like a huge underdog, but they're not.


Metapan (is 30 miles outside of Santa Ana-which has a population of more than 200,000 and their own Soccer team) is a significant underdog, especially playing as a visiting team at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles on Thursday night, starting at 10pm Eastern on Fox Soccer.

Open Cups are funny little things. Even when it is two MLS sides facing each other, the MLS stats just don't matter. While the San Jose Earthquakes are the class of the league right now and the Seattle Sounders are in a slide, the pace of matches, lineup changes and quirky stadium mean that the bearing of league results to the knockout is unknowable.

The U.S. Open Cup is a tradition that dates back to 1914. The City of Chicago has been around since 1837. The Chicago Fire were founded in 1997. It's a little crazy to think about but the founding of Chicago is chronologically closer to the beginning of the U.S. Open Cup than the founding of the soccer club we call our own.

The Merseyside outfit have splashed the cash under Dalglish which in turn has created some strength in depth at Anfield; something that was lacking for a number of years previous under the likes of Rafa Benitez and Roy Hodgson.
