Houston Dynamo vs LA Galaxy Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Houston Dynamo managed to get a valuable 1-1 draw against New York City at the Yankee stadium. Maximiliano Moralez came up with the opening goal after just six minutes, but New York City did not have the lead for long as Mauro Manotas came up with the equaliser in the 16th minute. Both teams were not to be separated in the remainder of the game. LA Galaxy came in with a poor defensive performance to lose 2-1 against Sporting Kansas City. Daniel Salloi provided the opening goal in the 18th minute and Diego Rubio doubled the advantage in the 35th minute. An excellent free kick from Romain Alessandrini in the 58th minute only became a consolation for Galaxy. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Galaxy looked extremely poor in the recent game against Sporting Kansas City, and it is possible to expect another poor performance in their trip to the BBVA Compass stadium. Even though Galaxy have won three out of the recent five matches against Houston, this poor form coupled with Wilmer Cabrera’s team being on a reasonable run of form – despite a lack of wins – is likely to see this game end as a home win. I would back a victory for Houston Dynamo.

Since 2011, only two of the meetings between these two clubs at Houston’s home has been with more than 2.5 goals. Galaxy have been poor in front of goal, but they are up against a Houston Dynamo team that has scored 14 in the last six matches. I would go with a game with more than 2.5 goals.

Houston Dynamo win – 8/15

Total goals over 2.5 – 1/2

Houston Dynamo Preview

The recent trip to the Yankee stadium may have finished as a draw, but Houston Dynamo could have won with a bit more clinical finishing. Manager Wilmer Cabrera will be aiming for the same, and his team are at the BBVA Compass stadium for the next three matches. It presents a major chance for Houston to get back into the top six of the Western Conference 2017 table. Real Salt Lake and San Jose Earthquakes have been able to leapfrog Houston in recent weeks, but both teams remain within touching distance. Erick Torres remains the leading scorer at Houston in the 2017 MLS season with 14 league goals.

Houston Dynamo Team News

George Malki (cruciate ligament), Philippe Senderos (groin), Charlie Ward (knee), and Boniek Garcia (knee) are the players unavailable for Houston Dynamo.

LA Galaxy Preview

The lack of goals is threatening to put LA Galaxy down to the bottom of the Western Conference, as the club have not scored from open play in the last three matches. After having significantly dropped away from the top six, Galaxy are now staring at the possibility of being overtaken by Colorado Rapids in the final few matches of the season. Galaxy only have four matches left in the campaign with an even number of games at home and away. Romain Alessandrini has now entered into double figures after scoring 10 league goals this season.

LA Galaxy Team News

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