The Galaxy have won six of the last seven meetings between these two clubs.

The LA Galaxy and Chivas USA are slated to kick off the first edition of the Honda Superclasico at the Home Depot Center in Carson this Saturday, in a match broadcast nationally on ESPN2. The Galaxy currently are one point ahead of Chivas in the table, with both clubs in the bottom third. It's a chance for one team to change their recent form, or for both clubs to continue their cellar dwelling existence.

It's the first meeting of the year between Chivas and the Galaxy in the SuperClasico, and the first time since 2009 that the two clubs will meet three times during the year. The past two seasons, MLS has tried a balanced double round robin schedule, but returned to an unbalanced schedule this year. Chivas will play host twice, while the Galaxy host once.

LA currently dominates the rivalry, winning six of the last seven meetings and owning a 16-6-3 record in all competitions. Chad Barrett is especially glad to see the Goats on the schedule, having scored a goal three of the last four times he's faced Chivas; including the game winner in both SuperClasico match ups last year.

David Beckham has been getting all the attention lately, after scoring his fourth direct kick goal in his MLS career (out of 12 total goals) in a strike against Montreal. Then when meeting the President of the United States on Tuesday, Beckham was singled out for jokes about his age and his underwear line.

Just four days after being congratulated by the President on their 2011 MLS Cup victory, the Galaxy will have to try and pick up their season against their intracity rival. The all time regular season record heavily favors the Galaxy (14-3-5), but LA has been slumping to begin this year already equaling their loss total from last year.
