I honestly will have a hard time watching this match-up of the two teams that essentially owned the Sounders this year. New England destroyed the Sounders 5-0 on Mother’s Day. The Galaxy beat the Sounders when it counted the most, in the playoffs. We all know this is Donovan’s finally game in MLS and I am sure that is all we are going to hear about during the pre-game, game and post-game.  Am I the only one that is tired of hearing about Donovan all the damn time? I can’t be right?

I digress. This match should be rather even for most of the match until the Galaxy’s experience will slowly start to take over the match. The final 15 minutes of the match will see the Galaxy keep the Revs deep in their own end. Just before you think that this match will be heading to penalties, Donovan will somehow recreate the magic that Derek Jeter was able to create in his last at bat for the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

Yup, Donovan will score the game-winning goal in stoppage time to win MLS Cup and go out a winner. How can it not end any other way. The Galaxy will become the first team in MLS history to win five MLS Cups and Donovan will walk away with his sixth as well as the MVP for the game.

Los Angeles Galaxy 1, New England Revolution 0
