Tip Reasoning

LA Galaxy slipped down to third last weekend and are now twelve points behind their local rivals LAFC in the race to finish top of the Western Conference. The hosts need a win on Saturday to reduce the large points gap that separates the pair but LAFC arrive in good form and will be confident of picking up their first-ever win against Galaxy this weekend.

Feltscher scored after just two minutes to hand LA Galaxy the lead at home to SJ Earthquakes last time out, and that goal separated the two clubs at the halftime interval. The visitors created more in the second half and deservedly equalised just after the hour mark and, with the bit between their teeth, SJ Earthquakes went in front three minutes later. As Galaxy pushed forward in search of an equalising goal of their own, the visitors hit them on the counter-attack in the eighty-fifth minute and scored again to wrap up a 3-1 victory.

LAFC were also involved in a 3-1 scoreline when they made the trip to Texas to face Houston Dynamo, where the visitors went 1-0 down to a third-minute goal from Quioto. Diomande managed to equalise for LAFC in first-half stoppage time, which changed the mood in both dressing rooms and handed the visitors the initiative in the second half. Diomande scored again just four minutes after the restart and a late strike from Rossi saw LAFC secure another MLS victory.

The form and performances of each of these teams this season and their head to head record suggests we will be in for a close and competitive ninety minutes this weekend, and we’re backing LAFC to win their first Hollywood derby. Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in two of the previous three meetings between these two clubs. LAFC have won four of their last six matches, while LA Galaxy have lost three of their last six matches, LAFC have won their last two away games and LA Galaxy were beaten in their last home game by SJ Earthquakes. Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in four of LAFC’s last six matches, which is why we’re backing a 3-2 win for the visitors this weekend.

Ibrahimović top scores for LA Galaxy this season with 13 league goals, while LAFC’s Vela is currently outdoing the enigmatic Swede with an impressive 19 MLS goals in just 19 matches. We’re confident that LAFC will win on Saturday and have predicted a final scoreline of 3-2. LAFC are due their first-ever win over their neighbours and, at this moment in time, they are playing the best football of their rather short history. The visitors have been scoring and conceding goals on a regular basis and head into the match as the form favourites and sit twelve points ahead of LA Galaxy in the Western Conference table.
