Three matchups to watch when the Sounders host LA Galaxy on Wednesday

The Seattle Sounders are hosting LA Galaxy this Wednesday (7:30 p.m. PT; Watch FREE on Apple TV, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360AM | TICKETS) in their second and final meeting of the regular season. Here are three matchups to watch:

Léo Chú vs. Mauricio Cuevas

16x9 leo chu 10.3

Léo Chú is a force to be reckon with this season, tallying five goals and eight assists for the Rave Green. His speed is a main component to his game, allowing him to blow by defenders, dribble into open space and serve balls into the box. He'll likely battle it out with Mauricio Cuevas. Cuevas made his debut with the Galaxy First Team on June 21 and has already earned four starts in his six appearances since then.

Nouhou vs. Douglas Costa

16x9 nouhou 10.3

Nouhou will be available to play on Wednesday after missing Saturday's match due to yellow card accumulation. He'll likely go head-to-head with winger Douglas Acosta, who also made Team of the Matchday for Matchday 35. He supported the Galaxy with one goal and two assists in the team's 3-3 draw against the Portland Timbers over the weekend.

João Paulo vs. Uri Rosell

16x9 joao paulo 10.3

João Paulo continues to be a vital asset for the Rave Green on both sides of the pitch. Not only does he control the momentum of the game through his distribution in the middle of the field, but he is also a crucial component when it comes to preventing opposition attacking opportunities. He'll likely go up against center midfielder Uri Rosell. Rosell has been a consistent presence in the central role for the LA squad this season, starting in 10 of his 14 appearances.
