Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 4/7
Reason For Philadelphia Union vs Los Angeles FC Betting Tips
Philadelphia Union recorded a 3-1 home win against Atlanta United last time out and will be buoyed by their guests’ recent run of results heading into Sunday’s big match. LAFC were held to a 2-2 draw by Orlando City before the international break and have now gone three games without a win, showing their vulnerable side for the first time this season.
All of the stats suggest there will be goals in this game and point towards a possible home win for Philadelphia Union who head into the match as the form favourites.
Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced the last time these two clubs met in 2018, with LAFC running out 4-1 winners that day but two draws and a defeat in their last three matches suggests the visitors won’t have things all their own way this weekend.
The performances of both sides in recent weeks almost guarantees goals between the pair on Sunday, as both teams scored in four of Philadelphia Union’s last five matches and over 2.5 goals were produced in five of the host’s last six matches. Both teams also scored in two of LAFC’s last three matches and over 2.5 goals were produced in four of the visitors’ last six matches.
Philadelphia Union have won four of their last five matches and edge the form guide heading into Sun day’s clash, as LAFC are without a win in their last three matches. Philadelphia Union are also unbeaten in their last seven home games, the last four of which have all produced wins and three of those victories produced over 2.5 goals and saw both teams score. LAFC scored two goals in their last away game but could only manage a draw with Orlando City and this weekends’ opponents carry more of a goal threat and we believe this could be the visitors undoing on Sunday.
We’re confident that both teams will score and over 2.5 goals will be produced in this weekends’ clash and have predicted a final scoreline of 3-2 in favour of Philadelphia Union. The hosts head into the match as the form favourites and will be keen to avenge the heavy defeat they suffered the last time these two clubs met. LAFC have seen their form dip but they are still the most attacking side in the MLS this season but have conceded seven goals in their last three matches which is why we’re expecting a five-goal thriller and have backed the U’s to come out on top.
