Philadelphia Union vs Los Angeles FC Prediction
Philadelphia is one of the league’s greatest scoring teams at home with 34 of their 54 goals coming in home matches. The Black and Golds are the most prolific traveling scorers with half of their goals scored on the road. Besides that, four of LAFC’s last six MLS road trips have produced over 3.5 total goals giving more hopes for fireworks in the match.
The hosts are now unbeaten in seven league games at home with a clean sheet in that run. The host reserves their celebrations mostly for the second part of the game, as they have scored 22 of their 34 home goals after the match restarts.
Therefore, the match will be a high scoring affair with fireworks at both ends. We can likely see the host netting goals in the second half of the game.
