Sunday's match-up between the Sounders and LA Galaxy at CenturyLink Field -- note time change, from 7 p.m. to 6 p.m. -- will look quite a bit different than May 2, when Seattle beat Los Angeles 2-0. Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena did not use or have several of his top players in that match, including David Beckham. The Sounders draw no such luck Sunday as the Galaxy will be at full strength, including Beckham, who returned earlier in week from the Olympics' Opening Ceremony in his native London.
