Venue: StubHub Center (Carson).
The classic derby between La Galaxy and DC United is going to take place on Thursday early morning.
LA Galaxy managed to improve their performances this season as the last one was very bad for them. Now, they are competitive for the place in the playoffs and they are just two points behind Vancouver Whitecaps, however the hosts played two games less than their rivals.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the lads haven’t suffered a defeat in the last three games and they are hoping of continuing this streak. However, LA Galaxy need to improve their home performances as they’ve already suffered four defeats in front of their fans.
DC United are having a disappointing campaign as they are sitting on the bottom spot in the Eastern Conference. However, they’ve played three to four games less than their opponents and they can still move away from the 11th place.
Ben Olsen will have Wayne Rooney at his disposal very soon and with this help and experience, the visitors might hope of better days for the club. Interestingly, DC United played the majority of their games at away grounds from which they’ve snatched just one win.
LA Galaxy vs DC United: Head-to-head
LA Galaxy have been more successful in their head to head clashes as they’ve lost to their rivals just once since 2008. When these two sides are facing each other, the crowd is usually able to enjoy in a lot of goals.
LA Galaxy vs DC United: Prediction
The hosts are in a much better momentum and they should be able to continue their playoff battle by wining valuable three points from this one. The main concern is their bad record when playing at home, but they should be capable of improving in this one.
Both sides have been involved in high scoring matches very often this season and this one could easily go over 2.5 margin. These tow teams should be capable of putting an exciting display for all the spectators.
