LA Galaxy vs FC Dallas Match Preview
LA Galaxy host Dallas in the Western Conference derby on Wednesday evening at Stubhub Center. The hosts are looking to make it three wins on the bounce after they kept clean sheets in back-to-back affairs against Montreal Impact and SJ Earthquakes.
The rise in form came without Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was sent off in the first half of the clash with Montreal. The Swedish superstar is still suspended and will skip Dallas’ visit as well. Nevertheless, Ola Kamara is more than a decent replacement as his goal helped the team snatch the spoils against the Impact even though they had a man down.
It will be very interesting to see if Galaxy will be able to maintain the fine form against the Hoops who have been enjoying an excellent shape of their own. The visitors head into this unbeaten in four and they took seven out of nine possible points in last three affairs.
LA Galaxy vs Dallas: Head-to-head
LA Galaxy lead the head to head tie by only two wins ahead of 59th meeting with Dallas.
Nevertheless, the Hoops were the dominant force in the most recent history of H2H matches.
Dallas won five and drew one of last six clashes with LA Galaxy netting as many as 10 goals in three consecutive wins coming into this one.
LA Galaxy vs FC Dallas: Predictions
Oscar Pareja’s men kept their net untouched in the shocking 0-1 victory over the reigning champions Toronto. Knowing they’ll be up against an outfit which has surprisingly kept back-to-back clean sheets in cast two rounds, we might fancy a low-scoring contest and back the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.15.
As for the outcome, it can honestly go either way, but we fancy the 3.40 odds offered for the draw. LA are the bookies favourites, but it’s hard to see the value backing them to win knowing Dallas are undefeated in last four league ties.
LA Galaxy vs Dallas: Betting Tips
- Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.15
- Draw @ 3.40.
