Los Angeles Preview – Can LAFC get back on track?

Los Angeles have been the top dogs in MLS so far this season. They have made several high-profile signings, with the likes of Gareth Bale and Giorgio Chiellini signing on the dotted line recently. LAFC are without doubt the team to beat in MLS this term.

Los Angeles fell to a surprise loss last time out, with Adrian Cubas’ 89th-minute goal giving Vancouver Whitecaps a 1-0 victory over the leaders. Prior to that, LAFC had taken 13 points from a possible 15.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 2210 GMT, Thursday 7 July)

After the defeat in Canada, LAFC will be desperate to get back to winning ways at the first time of asking, especially against their rivals. The home team are the odds-on favourites at 10/11 to get the points.

LA Galaxy Preview – Can Galaxy upset their rivals on the road?

LA Galaxy are sitting pretty in fourth position in the Western table at present. So far, Greg Vanney’s troops have collected 27 points from 17 fixtures, picking up eight wins, drawing three times and losing six.

Galaxy make the short trip to the Banc of California Stadium protecting a four-game unbeaten run. Since a poor 3-0 home reverse to Houston Dynamo in May, LA Galaxy have bounced back with wins over Austin and Montreal Impact and have drawn with Portland Timbers and Minnesota United.

Los Angeles vs LA Galaxy Betting Advice

LA Galaxy edged a tight derby when the duo clashed at Dignity Health Sports Park back in April. First-half goals from Javier Hernandez and Sega Coulibaly did the damage in the 2-1 Galaxy triumph.

Things were tight between them in 2021, with the last two meetings of the year ending in score draws. Galaxy won the first game 2-1 at home in May ’21, and LAFC’s last win in this fixture came in October 2020.


Key Facts – Los Angeles vs LA Galaxy Betting Tip

  • Galaxy edged the first meeting back in April
  • LAFC suffered a surprise loss last time out
  • Los Angeles are the top dogs in MLS right now with 36 points


As we said, LAFC will want to bounce back from last weekend’s surprise loss in Vancouver, but this will be a stern test for Steve Cherundolo’s side. We fancy the rivals to play out another score draw (7/2).

Hernandez has netted seven MLS goals this term, including the opener when these two met a few months back. The former Manchester United man is available at 9/2 to score the opening goal of this one.
