Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy: Preview and Predictions

Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy
United States – MLS
Date: Sunday, 25 March 2018
Kick-Off at 03:00 UK
Venue: BC Place Stadium (Vancouver).

Vancouver Whitecaps will be hoping to rebound from a tough 4-1 defeat away at Atlanta United on Saturday when they host conference rivals LA Galaxy at BC Place Stadium. The hosts have thus ruined the fine start to the season after back-to-back wins over Montreal Impact and Houston Dynamo. The most experienced player in the team, the center back Kendall Waston, as the one who got sent off early on (14 minutes into the game) and it has been an entirely one-sided contest ever since.

However, the clash with LA should really provide a decent opportunity for the hosts to return on thee winning ways instantly. The visitors have entered the season with the sky-high expectations, but their star man Giovanni Dos Santos has suffered an injury two weeks ago against New York City and will be absent for a while leaving Ola Kamara as the lone striker up front.

Kamara has already made an impact netting a goal on his debut in front of the home crowd at Stubhub Center and he will no doubts be a serious threat to Vancouver’s goal on Saturday. The hosts have Kamara of their own in the like of Kaiansu Kei Kamara who has notched two goals in three opening games since joining from New England Revolution.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy: Head-to-head

LA Galaxy lead the head to head tie by four wins, but the Caps have been much better in the recent history.

Vancouver will head into this off the back of three wins in a row in games against the Galaxy.

Interestingly, only two of last nine H2H matches have seen both teams on target.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy: Prediction

The low-scoring trend in H2H games might well be broken this time out since both sides have been pretty vulnerable at the back at the start of the new season.

Apart from backing goals, you can have Kei Kamara (two goals in three appearances) to find the back of the net at the odds of 2.05.
