2012 MLS Standings Week 4: Galaxy, Chivas Remain Cellar Dwellers

The LA Galaxy and Chivas USA came into week four at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, and at the end of week four they are both still at the bottom. With the Galaxy losing to the New England Revolution on Saturday, and Chivas losing to Sporting Kansas City on Sunday, the two LA MLS clubs only managed 3 points through the entire month of March. The teams are tied on goal differential, with both teams at -2.

Despite the appearance of a mirror image, the two teams could not have arrived at the same point from more disparate paths. Amazingly, the Galaxy lost 1-3 then won 3-1 and finally lost 1-3to end up with five goals for and seven goals against. While the Galaxy have been consistently manic, Chivas have been steadily consistent. In four matches they've seen the 1-0 scoreline four times, losing every match at home and losing the one on the road.

The Galaxy do have a game in hand on the three other clubs that find themselves at the bottom of the West with just one victory (FC Dallas and Portland Timbers FC do have a draw to go with their victory), but won't get to take advantage of it just yet. Galaxy and Chivas both go on the road this weekend, after there was a match at The Home Depot Center every week of March.

LA heads to Kansas City to take on the team that just beat Chivas 0-1. Chivas will head up to Portland to take on the Timbers, then head east to Toronto.
