Colorado Rapids vs LA Galaxy Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Colorado Rapids were able to register a brilliant 2-1 victory over Portland Timbers. Colorado conceded an early goal through Sebastian Blanco, and were on the back foot for much of the first half. A goal out of nothing from Dominique Badji in the 51st minute sparked a comeback, which was completed in the 89th minute through a header from Alan Gordon. LA Galaxy extended their unbeaten form with a 2-2 draw with Houston Dynamo. Galaxy managed a comeback twice in the game, as goals from Ema Boetang and Romain Alessandrini cancelled out the goals from Mauro Manotas and Alberto Elis. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Colorado Rapids have been involved in a string of high-scoring games with just one of the last six producing under 2.5 goals. It is a similar case with LA Galaxy, as just one of the last six matches involving Curt Onalfo’s team has produced under 2.5 goals. Even though recent meetings between Galaxy and Colorado have been low scoring games, recent form will have a bigger say for this match. I would back total goals over 2.5.

LA Galaxy have managed only two wins in the last six away games against Colorado, who have been able to win the remaining four. Colorado have won the last four games at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Even with Galaxy unbeaten in the last seven games, Colorado’s home form is impressive. I would back a Colorado Rapids win.

Total goals over 2.5 – 8/11

Colorado Rapids win – 5/4

Colorado Rapids saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids have surprisingly rediscovered a winning touch after being extremely poor in the first two months of the season. The club has now won the last four games in all competitions. Confidence is certainly high within Colorado, and the club will undoubtedly owe this improvement in form to the string of home matches. Pablo Mastroeni’s team have not been able to achieve an away win in six attempts, but they have won five out of the eight games at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Dominique Badji has been the club’s top scorer with four goals in the MLS.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Colorado Rapids will be without Bismark Adjei-Boateng due to injury.

LA Galaxy Preview

Galaxy have been able to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches in the league even after a goal fest with Houston Dynamo. Galaxy manager Curt Onalfo will be disappointed that his team only managing a draw from the last two MLS games. He will be all too aware that the club is in bad need of wins in order to move close to the top of the table. A good scoring form with 11 goals in the last five league games will be a major positive factor, but Galaxy have kept just one clean sheet in the last six league games. Romain Alessandrini has now become the top scorer with seven goals.

LA Galaxy Team News

Robbie Rogers (malleolar), Baggio Husidic (fibula fracture), Jermaine Jones (ligament), and Sebastian Lletget (foot) are the players unavailable for LA Galaxy.
