Los Angeles Prediction – Can Los Angeles be beaten at home?

Sunday evening’s hosts have enjoyed near total dominance of the Western Conference this season in the MLS as Los Angeles hold an impressive 18-point lead ahead of 2nd placed Real Salt Lake prior to Sunday night’s clash against local rivals, LA Galaxy.

The hosts have won their last 5 matches overall on the trot, won 8 of their last 9 and possess an excellent home record of 11-1-0 38/12 which includes winning their last 6 matches on the trot on home turf at their Banc of California Stadium.

In addition, the goals have been fairly flying in as Los Angeles have scored a total of 24 goals from these last 6 matches and have conceded just 8 in reply. The hosts also boast a formidable forward line that consists of Vela (26 goals), Rossi (14 goals) and Diomande (8 goals).

Due to Los Angeles’s recent emergence in the MLS as they’re a new franchise club, there’s limited data in terms of head-to-heads against LA Galaxy with only 1 match being played on home turf to date – that ended in a 2-2 draw. There’s been only 4 previous meetings, 3 of which were at LA Galaxy with Galaxy winning 2 of those.

LA Galaxy Prediction – Can LA Galaxy take bragging rights?

This is a local derby so anything is possible, but having managed to collect just 1 win out of their last 5 matches overall in the MLS, this looks a tall order even for Galaxy as their sole win during this recent period was a 2-0 home win against FC Dallas.

LA Galaxy have recently suffered a 3-match losing streak with defeats to Portland Timbers, Atlanta United and DC United – all of which were losses away from their Dignity Health Sports Park where they’ve won 9 of their 13 victories so far this season.

It’s fair to say then that LA Galaxy tend not to travel too well as their current away record of 4-1-7 11/20 indicates, as well as having lost their last 4 away matches on the trot with an earlier loss at San Jose Earthquakes on top of the aforementioned three losses.

Just as important to consider is the fact that LA Galaxy have leaked plenty of goals on their travels in recent times as their last 4 away defeats have seen the visitors ship a total of 12 goals, while Galaxy themselves scored just 1 in reply.


Key-Facts – Los Angeles v LA Galaxy

  • Los Angeles have won their last 6 home matches on the trot in the MLS
  • Los Angeles have scored a total of 24 goals in these last 6 matches
  • LA Galaxy have lost their last 4 away matches on the trot, conceding 12 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

You could say that LA Galaxy are there for the taking and Los Angeles look set to oblige here.
