SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES vs. LA GALAXY
STANFORD STADIUM, San Jose, Calif.
Heineken Rivalry Edición Especial
June 25, 2016 (Week 16, MLS Game #160)
10 pm ET (Univision in USA; MLS LIVE in Canada)
Coverage follows Copa America medal ceremony

It's become a summer tradition: The San Jose Earthquakes hosting their California Clasico rivals LA Galaxy in front of a capacity crowd at Stanford Stadium. Except this one will be even a bit more special.

For the first time since 1999, an MLS match will air on the Univision flagship. The Cali Clasico match, a Heineken Rivalry Edición Especial, will be broadcast at 10 pm ET, immediately following the USA vs. Colombia Copa America 3rd-place match (8 pm ET).

There's currently only one point separating the two teams in the Western Conference standings after 15 matches and it's worth noting that the Galaxy have won just once in the last 12 regular season meetings in northern California.

The Earthquakes are coming off a 2-2 draw in Orlando last weekend, while the LA Galaxy played midweek at home, where they were held to a 0-0 Wednesday night draw against the league-leading Colorado Rapids.

The teams are meeting for a third time this season, the first two both happened at StubHub Center. Gyasi Zardes scored a pair of goals to lead the Galaxy to a 3-1 win March 19 and the teams played to a 1-1 draw on May 22.
