This Saturday, the LA Galaxy will host their second Galaxy Throwback Night when they take on Chicago Fire at the Stubhub Center.  The night will be complete with retro giveaways, trivia, confetti, videos, playlists, and giving fans insight into the Galaxy’s rich history.  Additionally, the first 12,500 lucky fans to enter the stadium will get their very own limited edition Galaxy Throwback shirt.

The night will be filled with nostalgia and fun: but will it also include a win for the LA Galaxy? 

This is the last of the LA Galaxy’s three home games in a row and they have yet to get a win or even make a goal. However, coach Curt Onalfo is making changes to try and rectify that. Last game he added an extra midfielder into the lineup, and although it did not help the Galaxy put the ball in the net, they did dominate possession.

The Galaxy is currently in 10th place out of the eleven teams in the Western Conference and are in desperate need of a win. Chicago Fire, currently in 7th place in the Eastern Conference, boasts international soccer player Bastian Schweinsteiger, who will challenge the Galaxy.  However, Chicago is coming off of a two game losing streak, and Schweinsteiger just admitted to Chicago Fire Weekly that while his “brain is 100 percent,”  fitness wise he says he is only “around 70 percent.”

The game will take place at 7:30 this Saturday at Stubhub Center.

Bastian Schweinsteiger has already scored 2 goals since joining Chicago Fire.
