Los Angeles FC vs Houston Dynamo
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 13th October 2018
Kick-off at 3:00 UK/ 4:00 CET
Venue: Banc of California Stadium (Los Angeles).
The hosts are 3rd in the league and considering level on points with Kansas they will be planning to go to second place after a win at home this Saturday.
Two of their players Adama Diamonde and Benny Feilhaber have been included in the Team of the Week. The Norwegian striker has had success lately in front of goal. Diamonde was criticized for a 7 game goal drought. He broke out of the crisis with a brace against Colorado in last game.
The 3-0 score line away to Colorado included a goal from Zimmerman in the first half and then Diamonde coming in to extend the lead.
Houston coach Cabrera will want to make the fans happy with a strong finish to the league season. The team after winning the US open Cup in 2018 has lost their grip on the game and lost many of their away fixtures. They were victors in only one game of the total 15 away games and conceded 28 goals in return of the 17 they scored.
In the two games they played against each other this year, a winner did not come in the normal 90 minutes. So maybe the match will go down to the wire on Saturday too.
Los Angeles FC vs Houston Dynamo Head to head
- Their last meeting was at the US Open Cup where Houston won on penalties.
- Last two matches between the two ended in one draw and a win for Dynamo.
Los Angeles FC vs Houston Dynamo Prediction
LA is unbeaten in last 5 home matches and they will walk into this match as clear favorites considering Houston lost 8 of their last 10 away games.
Dynamo had already lost their chance to the play-offs and had lost all their confidence. Conceding 6 goals in the last 2 games. Thus, Bob Bradley’s team will be looking to capitalize on this fact.
Both meetings between them this year has resulted in 3 or more goals and we may once again back the over goal market for this MLS fixture.
