Friday's finally here, and one of the biggest matches is set to kick off tonight at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT (TV: ESPN 2, ESPN Deportes; Radip: 1150 AM, AM 1330). The tilt warrants the hype: It's a natural regional rivalry (West Coast vs. East Coast), it features a storied international tussle (United States' Donovan vs. Mexico's Márquez) and there's a former EPL clash thrown in, too (Beckham vs. Ángel).
But beneath all the hype and hoopla is an actual game. Pride and posturing are clearly at stake, but so are points and positioning. The Red Bulls have a chance to go atop the East with a win, while the Galaxy could extend their lead in the overall standings as they chase the Supporters' Shield.
But who has the edge? Who will triumph in the Showdown in Tinseltown? Let us know!
