LA Galaxy vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 8 March 2020
Kick-Off at 03:00 UK
Venue: Dignity Health Sports Park, Carson.
According to all pre-season polls, Vancouver Whitecaps are most likely going to be one of the worst placed teams in this year’s MLS.
The squad from Canada were pretty much silent during the transfer window, so it is hard to expect better results than in previous season.
2019 campaign was ended in the last place with only eight wins in 34 games. Whitecaps are visiting California this weekend to face LA Galaxy.
As expected, bookies are heavily favouring the home side to take all three points, currently at 1.33 odds.

LA Galaxy vs Vancouver Whitecaps Prediction
Vancouver Whitecaps had a chance to silence the critics and perform well in the opening round last weekend. They hosted Sporting Kansas City and lost the match convincingly. The only bright spot was Jakob Nerwinski with his goal in the first half.
Canadian side was not looking that bad during the pre-season, achieving three wins, two losses and one draw. Obviously competitive scene is something completely different.
LA Galaxy have started their MLS 2020 campaign with a solid result – a 1-1 draw in Texas against Houston Dynamo. This team has participated in the playoffs last season, and fans are expecting to see similar achievements in upcoming months.
Vancouver’s current state is not leaving us a lot of choice but to back hosts to win the match and to keep a clean sheet.
Cristian Pavon is in a great shape for LA squad, so backing him to score at any time is going to be the secondary choice.
