LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake: Preview and Predictions

LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 10th June 2018
Kick off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: StubHub Center (Los Angeles).

LA Galaxy have had a mixed season and on all accounts a poor one so far. A loss to Dallas by 3-2 followed up a draw against Portland Timbers and this season really has been about the club trying to find their identity.

LA Galaxy have fallen 3 points behind the play off positions and will have to play their best football of the season in order to make it. If they don’t this will be seen as a shock after star player Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival this season.

At home the Galaxy have lost 4 games and won 3 but the most disappointing statistic for them is that from their last 5 home games they have lost 4 of them. The pressure is really on for the team to react and start winning games.

Real Salt Lake are 5 points ahead of LA Galaxy and are in 3rd place in the conference. Their form is excellent having won their last 3 games and they have only lost once in their last five.

Whilst Real Salt Lake have good form it should be noted that their away form is very poor and from their last 5 games they have lost 4 of them. A 1-0 win against Seattle Sounders is their only away win of the season but it did come in their last game. They have also conceded 17 goals away from home in 7 games.

LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake: Head to Head

  • In the last 4 games at LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake have scored 10 goals.
  • The last 4 games at LA Galaxy have seen both teams to score.
  • Home or away Real Salt Lake have won just 1 game from the last 6 meetings.

LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake: Predictions

We will stick our necks out here and go for the home team but for minimum stakes as they have been very poor lately. But the truth is the Galaxy have enough quality in the team that when they click they will win games and score many goals too. So our choice is the home win and we will back the correct score.
