FRISCO – The LA Galaxy begin CONCACAF Champions League play tonight and there will be more than a few interested observers in Dallas.
“Of course I’ll be watching,” said head coach Schellas Hyndman. “I’ve encouraged all our players to watch.”
LA faces Isidro Metapan from El Salvador tonight at the Home Depot Center in opening round CCL play (9 p.m. CT on Fox Soccer). On Sunday, FC Dallas will be in California for a crucial match against the Galaxy for FC Dallas’ playoff hopes (6 p.m. CT on NBC Sports Network).
But Hyndman doesn’t think there will be any type of advantage for FCD with the quick turnaround for LA.
“When CCL really takes effect is after they’ve been traveling for three or four games, adding on MLS games, traveling from one country to another country and then turning around and playing a game. I think then you’ll start to see the wear and tear,” Hyndman said.
