Los Angeles FC vs Minnesota United
Date: Thursday, 10 May 2018
Kick-Off at 03:00 UK / 04:00 CET
Venue: Banc of California Stadium, Los Angeles.
Los Angeles FC only joined the competition this season, but they look to be in position to play a significant role right in the maiden campaign by the look of the league standing after eight matches. Bob Bradley’s squad clinched three wins and a draw in last four league games to climb up to the second place in the Western Conference standings.
Can LA keep the spell of excellent form going on Wednesday evening when they host the likes of Minnesota United at Banc of California Stadium? The hosts broke into the top six on the West after back-to-back home wins over Houston Dynamo and Vancouver Whitecaps.
Nevertheless, Adrian Heath’s men have huge issues keeping things quiet at the back on the road where they shipped three goals in each of three subsequent defeats to New York RB, Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders.

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between Los Angeles FC and Minnesota United.
Los Angeles FC vs Minnesota United: Prediction
Carlos Vela looks to be in good touch at the start of the season after bagging five goals in eight appearances for LA FC. The Mexican forward will fancy the fact his team will be up against an outfit which shipped nine goals in last three games on the road and we’ll back him as the anytime goalscorer pick at the 2.20 odds here.
You can also have Los Angeles FC to net two or more goals in the match at 1.36, while the hosts are 2.10 to bag at least three past Minnesota United here. Minnesota United just can’t seem able to bring the good displays from home matches on travels. They were dreadful travellers in the previous term of the competition as well, losing 12 of 17 away matches in the league last season.
