2012 MLS Standings Week 8: Galaxy Climb, Chivas Fall

The LA Galaxy joined the Colorado Rapids with nine points on the season after defeating the Rapids on Saturday. This also pulled them even with stadium-mates Chivas USA, who did not grab any points on Saturday losing at home to Philadelphia. The Galaxy are on top of that group on goal differential.

For the second week in a row, LA's opponent this weekend is within passing distance in the standings. FC Dallas come to The Home Depot Center Saturday to take on LA sitting one spot ahead with ten points. Dallas are 0-3-0 on the road this season, and have to play RSL on Wednesday.

Chivas on the other hand get to go on the road, where they are undefeated this season. Their opponents are the Colorado Rapids who just lost at home to the Galaxy last week.

The leaders in the Western Conference are San Jose with16 points and Real Salt Lake with 15. RSL has to travel to FC Dallas midweek, then hosts Toronto on Saturday. San Jose travels to Philadelphia to take on the Union.
