Los Angeles FC vs Philadelphia Union
Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 9 March 2020
Kick-Off at 2:30 UK
Venue: Banc of California Stadium, Los Angeles.
Los Angeles FC were the most dominant team in MLS 2019 regular season, and one of the biggest candidates to win the title.
Unfortunately for them and their fans, the last stop was Conference Finals where they got eliminated by Seattle Sounders. This squad didn’t change the roster that much, so it’s understandable to see them at the top of outright MLS 2020 winners list.
Philadelphia Union are arriving at Banc of California Stadium this Sunday night, and anything but a win for the home team would be regarded as a surprise really. Los Angeles FC are hot favorites for the win at 1.40 odds.
Los Angeles FC vs Philadelphia Union Head-to-head
There were only two head to head duels between these two sides in the past so far. The reason behind this is fact Los Angeles FC entered the franchise in 2018.
The first match was easily won by the Californian side 4-1, while the most recent one in Pennsylvania ended without a winner 1-1 FT.
Average number of goals in their h2h games is currently at high 3.50 per duel.
Los Angeles FC vs Philadelphia Union Prediction
Mexican striker Carlos Vela is the best player Los Angeles FC ever had there is no doubt about that. It was interesting to observe a battle between this player and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the previous season. Vela bagged 34 goals in 34 matches, which is quite impressive. He will lead LA’s offense in upcoming months too.
Last week Los Angeles FC were also regarded huge favorites against newcomers to the league Inter Miami. They eventually won the match 1-0 but struggled a lot up front. Guess once who the goal scorer was.
Philadelphia Union are going through a big crisis at the moment after losing four out of the last five matches. We don’t think they have any chance to avoid defeat on Sunday. They have been consistent when it comes to scoring though, so we are backing home win & BTTS option.
