Minnesota United vs LA Galaxy Prediction
The host is in a ten-game unbeaten run at home with three draws. They did prove their strength at home with slotting in at least a goal in each of their last six. Hence, their supremacy at home is proven in the regular season of the campaign.
On the other hand, even after being unbeaten against the Loons in the last four visits, they still hold a poor form in their trips on the road. The guest has lost 8 of the ten away fixtures in the schedule with a draw alongside.
At home, the Loons have made a comeback into the game after conceding first in the previous four home matches in the MLS season. Meanwhile, the Californians lost all nine away matches when conceding first in the ninety minutes. So, the opening goal will be crucial in the game.
Despite the losses, the visitors have scored goals in the last seven away games. Hence, we can expect a close encounter on Monday. Moreover, LA Galaxy has seen 14 of their previous 15 league games finish with over 2.5 goals in the clash.
As such, we can expect the host to utilize their home ground advantage and probably win the ticket to the next round of the MLS campaign.
