The Real Deal
The hottest thing in SoCal tonight is at the Home Depot Center in Carson, as the Los Angeles Galaxy will take on Real Madrid. Yes, that Real Madrid.Yesterday, a training session between in Carson attracted more than 8,000 fans, and tonight's games is sold out. Real Madrid is the world's most star-studded soccer team, which includes big names such as David Beckham, Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Michael Owen, Roberto Carlos, Luis Figo, and Raul Gonzalez.
While the match is going to be just a friendly, expect the Home Depot Center to be as loud and enthusiastic as ever its been for this special treat. MLS teams have played top foreign clubs before, but never a team of this caliber. LAist will be tuning in.
Now the question is, do the Galaxy stand a chance of winning? Post your predictions.
