FC Dallas vs LA Galaxy Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

FC Dallas suffered a blow in the play-off race after a 4-0 loss against Seattle Sounders during the weekend. Victor Rodriguez provided the opening goal in the 31st minute, and a two minute spell in the second half saw Will Bruin come up with a brace. A late goal from Lamar Neagle confirmed the thrashing for Dallas. LA Galaxy picked up the first win in seven league matches after beating Minnesota United 3-0 at home. Early goals from Romain Alessandrini and Jonathan Dos Santos provided the home team with plenty of confidence, while a late goal from Alessandrini made it a comfortable victory. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dallas have been the dominant team in recent games against Galaxy after picking three wins in the last four meetings, but this game is likely to witness a shift. After having picked up a comfortable win over Minnesota, Galaxy will be able to get a victory over Dallas if they managed to get an early goal. Galaxy did pick up a win over Dallas’ Toyota Stadium only recently. However, a remarkable four out of the last five home games for Dallas have been a draw. I would go with a draw in this game. Despite a poor run of form, Galaxy have failed to score only twice in the last nine away games. Dallas have failed to score in two of the last six home games, but there is enough reason to expect the home team to score – especially considering Galaxy’s poor defensive record. I would back both teams to score.

Draw – 4/1

Both teams to score – 4/5

FC Dallas Preview

Dallas’ small run of three games without defeat came to an end with a 4-0 loss against Seattle Sounders. This defeat was much more damaging to the club, as it meant that San Jose Earthquakes remain in pole position to finish in the final play-off spot of the Western Conference. Dallas are level on points with San Jose but trail the club after having picked up a fewer number of wins. The possibility of Real Salt Lake overtaking Dallas is still quite feasible with Mike Petke’s team just one point behind. The top scorer at Dallas this season has been Maximiliano Urruti with 12 so far.

FC Dallas Team News

Dallas come into the game without any injury or suspension worries.

LA Galaxy Preview

The win over Minnesota United has lifted the mood around LA Galaxy, as results have not improved even after the arrival of Sigi Schmid a couple of months ago. The confidence had been at the rock bottom and it has been one of the primary factors behind the Galaxy not being able to revive their form throughout the campaign. The confidence provided by two early goals against Minnesota United was clear to see, and it will once again be the key in the remaining game of the regular season. It has been a season to forget for LA Galaxy, but the club will be looking to end the 2017 MLS season on a high.

LA Galaxy Team News

Pele van Anholt (cruciate ligament), Daniel Steres (back), Gyasi Zardes (groin), Robbie Rogers (ankle), and Sebastian Lletget (foot) are the players who remain on the sidelines for Galaxy.
