LA Galaxy vs Sporting Kansas City
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 16 September 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Dignity Health Sports Park (Carson).

LA Galaxy has been facing a tough time on the road, and after three tough away ties, they are finally back at home, and fans will fervently hope for a reversal in their fortunes. Two-thirds of their points this campaign has come at home, and at this stage, they’re in no situation to take any home tie lightly.

Almost same is the case for Sporting, with the team underperforming on the road, and compensating for it with master-classes in front of the home crowd.

With both lying just below the play-off zone, a fierce encounter is on the cards for sure.

LA Galaxy vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction

LA has been specializing in performing well at home, and in that regards, this tie is important for the squad. Even more so, since they are trailing behind the playoff cut-off by just a single point.

Moreover, Sporting Kansas was winless in an embarrassing 14 of their previous 17 away ties and lost three of their last four as well. Meanwhile, at home, LA was unbeaten in six of their previous seven appearances and won five of these as well. They had also managed to score twice or more in these six match-ups.

In addition, nine of the last thirteen overall h2h wins went to the units with home advantage, and so did 16 of the previous 21 at this venue.

As these stats suggest, count on Zlatan Ibrahimovic and co to make plenty of use of this home fixture.
