Galaxy makes easy work of Chivas USA

[MLS: Week 5] Just how much work Chivas USA still has ahead of it was evident as the LA Galaxy cruised to an easy 3-0 win -- its first victory of the season -- in their first Super Clasico of the season.

Week 5 Scoring: 31 goals/9 games (average: 3.44).
Season Scoring: 121 goals/43 games (average: 2.81).

Coming off a bye week, the Galaxy looked sharp and sliced apart Chivas USA's depleted defense for a victory that could have been much bigger. Robbie Keane had the first goal, and Stefan Ishizaki and Baggio Husidic both scored their first Galaxy goals since being brought over from Sweden in the offseason. Showing no ill effects from the knee problems that limited him to a half-hour stint against Mexico on Wednesday, Landon Donovan had assists on the second and third goals.

    Why were only 15k in LA for Galaxy - Chivas? It's a home game for both clubs! A perfect sunny afternoon, it should have been sold out. Most fans on TV seemed to be Galaxy, but that's not saying much with half the place empty. When will MLS realize they need to move Chivas to a city that will support them under a new name.

    Glenn, Because Chivas is Chivas.. And Let's be realistic, LAG should be beating Chivas by more than 3 goals.... If they want to send a message to the world it needs to have the same effect, when we see a Madrid v Betis score.. like 7-1, etc...
