Here are Colin’s keys as the 'Caps play a big road match against LA Galaxy at Dignity Health Sports Park.

Clean sheet

With the ‘Caps two points out of the playoffs, and tied with this LA Galaxy team, these points are critical.

They need to commit to being hard to break down.

From front to back.

Eyes on Chicharito

The Mexican international is still a very dangerous player.

He has nine goals on the season and needs to be watched.

But be careful of challenges in the box, he is prone to the occasional dive.

Attack the back

The Galaxy lost 4-2 in their last match at Sporting Kansas City.

Their back four did not play well.

The ‘Caps must put them under pressure and get the ball forward early.
