DC United vs LA Galaxy Prediction & Match Preview

DC United vs LA Galaxy
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 12 August 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Audi Field (Washington).

Two former major football stars are on collision course, as these teams line up against each other. The hosts will find pride in Wayne Rooney, while the visitors put forth their trump card, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

A win is necessary for both, as they have fallen a bit off form-charts. The situation is worse for Galaxy, as their derby rivals have already posted a mammoth 15-point lead at the top. For DC though, the scenario is manageable, as the runner-up spot is just three points away, and the pinnacle just six away.

Moreover, taking into account the current away form of LA, United has more things to be cheerful of.

  • Nine of the last thirteen meetings at this venue also had the same stat to show.
  • Three of the last four wins at this venue went to the hosts.

DC United vs LA Galaxy Prediction

Galaxy is experiencing severe losses on the road these past few weeks. They are on a streak of three defeats, and also lost four of their last five. Moreover, they conceded three or more goals in four of their last five away games, and in six of their last nine on the road.

Going on, home teams have always had the upper hand in h2h ties whenever these two take on each other. In fact, the last time a team on the road won was in 2010. Also, three of the last four wins at this venue went to the hosts as well.

As such, expect DC to emerge through this game without losing.

Furthermore, the competitiveness of the two, and the desperation of either to get back to their winning ways will see attack-minded football throughout. Moreover, say whatever you want about Galaxy’s form, but they know how to entertain. It’s highly unlikely that they would return with their frontline completely shut out.

Finally, a team that has conceded a total of 15 goals from their last three home ties, is not the odds-on favorite to keep a clean sheet.
