LA Galaxy Review – Can Los Angeles gain momentum after their last win?

(odds taken 1500 GMT, Wednesday 26th August 2020)


The camp should have a positive vube within their ranks as they are coming off a 2-0 win over fierce rivals Los Angeles FC. That result has definitely improved what to this point has been a disastrous season for Galaxy.

They sit bottom of the western conference with 5 points from 6 games, a point behind FC Dallas who have a game in hand. Where it does bode well for the club is the fact that a win should push them above the aforementioned side FC Dallas, as well as Vancouver who have played 8 games already.

In fact a win on Thursday morning will push LA into 7th position. A much healthier position to be in than their current spot of 12th.

Galaxy talisman Cristian Pavon has 6 goal involvements in g matches (3 goals & 3 assists) will be expected to provide some magic in order for Galaxy to stand a chance in coming away with a victory.

A big problem that LA will have to rectify for this game is the defence. 1 clean sheet in 6 doesn’t bode well for a side who has only managed to score 7 goals themselves so far this season. So starting the game being cautious is not a tactic that should be overlooked.


Seattle Sounders Review – Can the sounders close the gap On Kansas with a Win?

Second-placed Seattle will look to gain ground on Western conference leaders Sporting Kansas City who are 4 points ahead, having played a game more. So a win is at the forefront of their minds in order to close the gap to a single point.

Seattle enters the fixture off the back of consecutive 3-0 wins against Vacouver and Portland so the team morale will be hungry for more positive results. The squad has been purring behind the great form of No. 9 Raul Ruidiaz who has 4 goals in 6 games.

Off the back of 2 consecutive clean sheets also provides extra motivation for the defenders to keep the streak continuing.
