Columbus Crew come into the match after bagging a narrow 2-1 win over Real Salt Lake, taking confidence after finally ending a six-game winless streak across competitions. They’ve finally found their form in the attacking third and building on such performance could prove essential for their ambitions to keep up with the Eastern Conference top 2.

The Black & Gold have had troubles reaching consistency on the road and finding the net on the regular, for that matter, which could be more worrying. They’ve failed to do so in six of their eight MLS trips this season and LA Galaxy should have a lot to exploit on the day as well – led by an in-form Zlatan Ibrahimovic up front, who netted five goals in last three appearances.

LA Galaxy vs Columbus Crew: Head-to-head

  • Columbus Crew have bagged a 2-0 win in the sides’ last head-to-head clash in August 2017.
  • LA Galaxy have earned a 2-1 win in their last matchup here, back in September 2016.
  • We’ve seen goals on both ends in four of the last five matches between the sides.

LA Galaxy vs Columbus Crew: Prediction

We will now back LA Galaxy to take revenge in front of the home crowd once again and capitalize on the rivals woes on the road, going for a Home win at 2.20. We have seen them scoring many goals and this could prove crucial in another high-scoring clash looming.

Indeed, Columbus have picked it up recently and should be able to make use of the Galaxy’s obvious troubles at the back. We thus hope to see goals and we’ll also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.65, which has been rated a generous banker bet by many already.

LA Galaxy vs Columbus Crew: Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 2.20
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.65.
