Columbus Crew vs LA Galaxy
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 9th May 2019
Kick-off at 00.30 UK/ 01.30 CET
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium (Columbus).

Columbus had a great start to their season, and they managed to post 13 points on the board from the first six matches, and then they entered free-fall mode. The next five fixtures saw the team returning zero points. As a result, they lost their top-tier position, and now is placed sixth in the table, with a chance to lose out on the playoff zone in this match-day.

Galaxy has a game in hand and is currently second in the table. If they manage to win this extra tie, the team can jump to the top-most of the table. With the squad taking on a team that has lost their last five games in a row, Galaxy fans are thrilled.

Columbus Crew vs LA Galaxy Prediction

Columbus lost their last five matches in a row and is easily one of the worst teams in the whole MLS right now. In h2h ties, seven of the last nine wins went to Galaxy as well. In addition, LA has a shot to get to the top of the table, utilizing their game in hand which is this one. Trust them not to mess this chance up. It’s extremely unlikely that they’d lose this clash, and the team surely has the upper hand.

But do keep in mind that Crew is at home and that 16 of the last 21 h2h wins went to such sides. Moreover, five of the last seven h2h meetings and three of the last four at this venue had goals from both squads as well. Finally, LA has conceded at least a goal in 13 of their last 15 away ties and did so twice or more in nine of their last fourteen matches on the road. As such, expect either side to take part in the goal-scoring action.
