LA Galaxy v FC Dallas Betting Tips – MLS, 15th August 03.30am

Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s LA Galaxy welcome Luchi Gonzalez’s FC Dallas to Dignity Health Sports Park for an all-Western MLS fixture in midweek. These two teams are separated by a single point, with the Galaxy just ahead in the Western Conference table. With this one taking place in Los Angeles, Schelotto’s side are the favourites. However, LA have lost their last three league games, while Dallas beat Minnesota United last time out. Which way will this exciting MLS encounter go in the City of Angels?

LA Galaxy News and Form – Can LA avoid a fourth successive defeat?

The Galaxy made a superb start to their season, winning seven of their opening nine. However, LA have fallen from grace since then, losing ten times along the way. Overall, Schelotto’s men have won 12, lost 11 and drawn just once.

Since winning the LA derby back in July, the Galaxy have lost three MLS fixtures in a row. However, all three of those defeats have come away from home, with Portland Timbers (4-0), Atlanta United (3-0) and DC United (2-1) all getting the better of them in recent weeks.

LA Galaxy have blown hot and cold at Dignity Health Sports Park in recent months. After kicking off their season with six consecutive home wins, LA have lost four and won only two of their last six on home soil. Away from LA, the Galaxy have lost each of their last four in the league.

LA Galaxy will be desperate to strike back after three poor losses in a row. Their home form has been good for the most part, and the franchise will be hoping to get back to winning ways against Dallas on Thursday.

Key-Facts – LA Galaxy v FC Dallas

  • The Galaxy have won eight of their 12 MLS home fixtures
  • Dallas have won just three away games in MLS this year
  • LA have lost their last three

 

FC Dallas News and Form – Can the Hoops make it back-to-back wins?

After a disappointing 2-0 loss at Orlando City, FC Dallas returned to winning ways in emphatic style last weekend, putting five past Minnesota at Toyota Stadium. Brandon Servania helped himself to a brace, while there were goals for Ryan Hollingshead, Santiago Mosquera and Reggie Cannon in the 5-3 thriller.

The Hoops have been in patchy form of late, though, winning three, losing three and drawing two of their last eight in MLS. Dallas currently find themselves in seventh place in the Western Conference. So far, the club have picked up ten wins from 25 league matches, losing nine and drawing six along the way.

Gonzalez’s side have struggled on the road so far this season. Toros have secured just three away league wins, losing eight of their 12 away fixtures in the process. Before losing 2-0 to Orlando in their last away affair, Dallas did manage to beat Sporting Kansas City 2-0 at Children’s Mercy Park last month.

Dallas will leapfrog LA Galaxy in the Western Conference with an away win on Thursday. However, they head to Los Angeles as the 14/5 underdogs.

LA Galaxy to be winning at half time and full time at 2/1
Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score first at 2/1

LA Galaxy v FC Dallas Predictions

LA Galaxy win: Schelotto’s side have been in poor form lately, suffering three consecutive MLS defeats. However, they are pretty solid at home. Dallas have only managed to win three league games on the road this season, and Gonzalez’s troops could struggle at Dignity Health Sports Park on Thursday. I like the look of the hosts to be winning at half time and full time at 2/1.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic have been a revelation in Los Angeles since arriving. The former Barcelona and Manchester United hitman has netted 16 MLS goals this season, but the Swede has failed to score in his last two. Have a punt on Ibrahimovic to open the scoring in this one at 2/1.
