Los Angeles Galaxy vs Seattle Sounders
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 August 2020
Kick-off at 04:00 UK/ 05:00 CET
Venue: Dignity Health Sports Park.
Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s men have been struggling for quite some time now. In fact, since October of 2019, they have recorded a total of one win, and as of now are placed dead-last in the table in the West.
On the other hand we have the reigning MLS champions – Brian Schmetzer’s men. They are determined to repeat the heroics of last season, and as of now are attempting to climb to the top spot in the Western Conference.
Currently they are placed second in the table, trailing by four points. However, they have a game in hand, and will expect to cut down the toppers’ lead to a single point.
Going on, they also have dominated this opponent in h2h clashes over the last four years.
For the reasons, expect a winning performance from Seattle Sounders at the Dignity Health Sports Park.
Los Angeles Galaxy vs Seattle Sounders: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 4-3 win for the title-holders.
- They had scored a total of 19 goals from the former eight match-ups.
- They had scored two or more goals in four of the preceding six encounters at this stadium.
- In the past four years, only once have they lost against this rival.
Los Angeles Galaxy vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction
Schelotto’s men are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment, and deservedly they are placed bottom-most in the table in the West.
They have won a single game in the last ten months, and their last victory at home had come back in September of 2019.
On the other hand, Schmetzer’s men are the defending champions of the MLS, and they have maintained their level and intensity this time around as well. In fact, they are attempting to dethrone Sporting Kansas City from the top-most position as of now with a win.
On top of that, they also do have a great h2h record against this rival, and especially so in the recent years.
As such, expect Seattle Sounders to emerge victorious this Thursday.
