Columbus Crew Prediction

Columbus Crew occupy 6th place in the Eastern Conference which perhaps hides the fact that the hosts have suffered a dismal run of defeats in recent matches which has resulted in Columbus losing valuable ground on the clubs near the top of the Conference.

The hosts made a good start to the season however, as they’d won 4 of their first 6 matches overall to get them off to a solid start with victories against New England Revolution (home and away), Dallas and Atlanta United, but they’ve since dropped their game in emphatic fashion.

Columbus Crew’s subsequent five matches have seen The Crew lose them all with defeats to Montreal Impact, Portland Timbers, DC United (home and away) and Houston Dynamo, scoring just 2 goals for and conceding a total of 10 goals in reply.

Their home record stands at 3-1-2 6/5 with goals being a scarce commodity at their MAPFRE Stadium as 5 of their first 6 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

LA Galaxy Prediction

LA Galaxy sit in 2nd place in the Western Conference just two points adrift of their cross-city rivals, Los Angeles FC, as the visitors have enjoyed a successful start to their new campaign, particularly at home where they still possess an impressive 100% winning record at their Dignity Health Sports Park.

6 wins on the trot at home will always give a team a much needed boost in these early stages of the MLS season and LA Galaxy have certainly made the most of home advantage this season to date with an outstanding record of 6-0-0 13/6.

However, it’s LA Galaxy’s results away from home that concerns us for this clash and the visitors have posted a much more modest looking away record of 1-1-2 4/5, losing at Dallas 2-0 and a 3-2 loss at New York Red Bulls on their travels so far this term.

3 of LA Galaxy’s 4 away matches this season have also resulted in under 2.5 goals, along with having failed to score twice and keeping two clean sheets on the road so far.
