David Beckham and Landon Donovan are among a glut of players whose injuries have decimated the Los Angeles Galaxy's roster heading into Wednesday's SuperLiga final.

The team did not practice on Monday and offered no updates on Beckham's nagging left ankle injury or Donovan. Also injured are Chris Albright, Abel Xavier, Ty Harden, Ante Jazic and Kelly Gray.

Those seven didn't travel to Colorado for Sunday's Major League Soccer game, which the Galaxy lost 3-0. Also missing the trip was Kevin Harmse, who threw a punch and was red-carded in Thursday's 3-0 loss to Chivas USA.

The injured players were expected to return to practice on Tuesday.

The Galaxy play two home games this week, including Wednesday's SuperLiga final against Mexican club Pachuca.

Donovan's four goals top the inaugural SuperLiga. Beckham scored his first goal with the Galaxy on a free kick in the SuperLiga semifinals against DC United.

The title match is a sellout. Attendance was capped at 12,500 in the 27,000-seat stadium to limit traffic and ease parking problems for students in their first week of classes at Cal State Dominguez Hills. The school shares its campus with Home Depot Center.

The SuperLiga winner receives $1 million.
