Atlanta United vs LA Galaxy Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atlanta United failed to build on the mighty 7-0 win over New England, as the team could only get a 3-3 draw with Orlando City at the Mercedes Benz stadium. The highly entertaining game saw Orlando City take the lead three times and lose it on every occasion. A brace from Dom Dwyer and a second-half goal from Cyle Larin were all cancelled out by Jackson Martinez. LA Galaxy put in a disastrous performance to lose 4-0 against Toronto. Drew Moor, Tosaint Ricketts (2), and Victor Vasquez scored to end a spell in the sunshine for LA Galaxy. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This will be the first meeting between Atlanta and LA Galaxy. Gerardo Martino’s team come into the match with a draw, but it was a hugely positive result as the team came back from the jaws of defeat on three occasions. Galaxy, meanwhile, put in a timid performance against Toronto. Recent form for the two clubs cannot be more contrasting in nature, as Atlanta are unbeaten in the last four while Galaxy have managed just one win in the last 13. I would go with a win for Atlanta United.

Atlanta have been in excellent scoring form after finding the back of the net on 15 occasions in the last four league games. Galaxy have conceded 10 goals in the last five games. Hence, I see excellent value in opting for this game to witness over 2.5 goals.

Atlanta United win – 4/9

Total goals over 2.5 – 4/9

Atlanta United Preview

After starting life at the Mercedes Benz stadium in impressive fashion, Atlanta United will be hoping to make it to the play-offs in their first MLS 2017 season. There is a significant chance of Atalanta managing to finish in the top six, as the club have built a substantial seven-point advantage over the Montreal Impact in the last few matches. There is even the slender possibility of making a push for the top two places, as New York City only have an eight-point advantage. Even though it may seem excessive on paper, Atlanta have most of their remaining matches at home. Josef Martinez has now taken his league tally to 16 goals with the hat-trick against Orlando City.

Atlanta United Team News

There are no injury or suspension worries for manager Gerardo Martino coming into the game.

LA Galaxy Preview

LA Galaxy have slipped back into losing ways after coming in with a disastrous performance against Toronto FC. The complete lack of defensive organisation led to Toronto making the most – even with a number of stars unavailable. New manager Sigi Schmid saw an immediate improvement in performances – without an equal rise in the results – and Galaxy came in with one of the worst performances under the new manager in this latest match. At the other end of the pitch, Galaxy have now failed to score in three out of the last five league games. Romain Alessandrini may be the top scorer, but his return of nine goals sees him struggle to even get into double figures.

LA Galaxy Team News

Sebastian Lletget (foot), Robbie Rogers (ankle), Pele van Anholt (cruciate ligament), Bradley Diallo (hamstring), and Baggio Husidic (leg) are the players unavailable for LA Galaxy.
