SoCal’s W Radio 690 AM says the broadcast of the “ChivaClasico” soccer game between Chivas USA of Major League Soccer and Club Deportivo Guadalajara of the Mexican First Division will take place on Tuesday, 9/14 from PETCO Park in San Diego at 8:00 p.m. PT.
This year’s “ChivaClásico” – which features Copa Libertadores finalist Chivas de Guadalajara against its Los Angeles-based counterpart, Chivas USA – is the second edition of the match, with the teams having squared off almost a year ago at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA, where Omar Arellano scored two goals to give Chivas de Guadalajara the 2-0 victory.
Chivas de Guadalajara, Mexico’s most successful club in history with 11 league championships, is famous for using only Mexican players and features many of the top players in the country, including Jonny Magallón, Adolfo “Bofo” Bautista, Alberto “Venado” Medina and Luis Michel, who all represented Mexico at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Other stars on the team include Omar Bravo, Edgar Mejia, Patricio “Pato” Araujo, and Héctor Reynoso.
In just its sixth season in Major League Soccer, Chivas USA has established itself by making the playoffs for four consecutive seasons and appearing in three straight editions of the SuperLiga, and this season, the club is in the semifinals of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Led by United States World Cup veteran Jonathan Bornstein, the team features an international roster including Mariano Trujillo and Rodolfo Espinoza of Mexico, Paulo Nagamura of Brazil, and Venezuelan forward Giancarlo Maldonado, as well as former Chivas de Guadalajara player Jesús Padilla.
