LA Galaxy vs Seattle Sounders FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 24 September 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK
Venue: StubHub Center (Carson).
LA Galaxy got in trouble despite netting numbers of goals and earned just three points in their last seven outings and more of the same continued as they took on Toronto in their first clash under Dominic Kinnear, suffering a thriller 5-3 loss as pulling back from losing 3-0 early in the second half wasn’t enough.
Galaxy have been a tougher side at StubHub Center but still earned just three points in last three games here, conceding goals on the regular as Minnesota United, Colorado Rapids, and city rivals Los Angeles FC all held them off.
Seattle Sounders FC will, on the other end, now be very motivated to capitalize on such woes in what could prove one of the crucial points in their top 6 chase, as they sit 6th placed and have sit points gap to the rivals at this point. They have seen their nine-game winning streak ended by Philadelphia Union on Thursday, though, and have some bouncing back of their own to do ahead of the tough trip to Los Angeles.

We will now back Seattle Sounders to build on their fine form and prove they are worth of a top-six spot at StubHub Center too, sticking our necks out for them to snatch at least a point and leave unbeaten with a Double Chance – Draw or Away win at 1.95.
Indeed, we have seen them in great shape and they have great head-to-head records to build on. However, they could have to outgun the rivals to do so and we do believe we are in for goals, as we also go for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.44.
