Los Angeles FC vs LA Galaxy
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (Bay Lake, Florida).
Even in the start of MLS season before cancelling the league, LA Galaxy showed a dip in form with back-to-back winless games in their schedule.
Los Angeles is on a good run and will probably catch the visitors off guard for all three points in the group.
LAFC was caught in a 3-3 entertainer at home in their opening match in the tournament against Houston Dynamo. The host came back two times in the match after losing the lead early on.
On the other hand, LA Galaxy was welcomed to the Group F with a defeat from the Portland Timbers in the last clash in the tournament after being unlucky twice in the game.
If Chicharito hadn’t missed the penalty, the visitor might have had some hope in the first half of the game itself and then another goal in the second half was disallowed by VAR.
The host has chances to use their home ground advantage as they found the back of the net thrice in their opening home match.
And if the home team could hold their defenses a little better in the middle, they have all chances of moving into the top two in Group F.
Los Angeles FC vs LA Galaxy Head-to-head (h2h)
- The guest has recorded two of the overall three wins.

Los Angeles FC vs LA Galaxy Prediction
LAFC has been stingy in losing points in their schedule across all major competitions. They have started the season on a good note and the exciting clash with Houston earlier shows that their strikers will not be taking a rest in the ninety minutes.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet in the clash considering the troubles LA Galaxy has been facing in the league, especially away from home.
All their six meetings have seen both teams in the scoresheet before the fat lady sings. Besides, the teams have combined to average 5-3 goals per match in their h2h clashes so far. The teams have entertained three draws in the same period as a result of their tight contest.
So, the tip for over 2.5 goals and the BTTS with the same 1.50 odds will also be suitable additional bets in the clash for the punters to yield decent returns from the game.
