[GUINNESS INT'L CHAMPIONS CUP] Back to full strength, the LA Galaxy got goals from its big three, Omar Gonzalez, Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane, for a well-deserved 3-1 win over Italian champion Juventus Saturday in the Guinness International Champions Cup at Dodger Stadium that put a big smile that has often been missing to Bruce Arena's face this MLS season.

Gonzalez scored a well-constructed goal to put the Galaxy ahead in the first half, and Keane then set up Donovan and scored a third goal gifted to him by Juve star Andrea Pirlo for the win that put the Galaxy's Western Conference rivals on notice that it will be a team to reckoned with down the stretch.

Arena tried to downplay the exhibition win but admitted the Galaxy played well and was glad his young players got a chance to play in the tournament against teams like Juve and Real Madrid, which beat the Galaxy, 3-1, on Thursday. As for Juventus, the loss was a blow for the brand Bianconeri.

In Saturday's first game, Real Madrid moved into the final of the Guinness International Champions Cup with a 2-1 win over Tim Howard's Everton.

Real Madrid will meet the winner of Sunday's Chelsea-AC Milan game in Wednesday's final at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Shores, Fla. The Galaxy has been placed to play in Wednesday's fifth-place game. All eight teams will play Tuesday or Wednesday at Sun Life Stadium.

    Galaxy represented themselves well, especially in the RM game with so many of their youngsters showing technical skill and awareness.
