LA Galaxy vs Houston Dynamo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

LA Galaxy have been able to extend their unbeaten run with a goalless draw against DC United. Manager Curt Onalfo will be more than pleased to come away with a point, especially considering that DC United had several chances to win the game over the course of the 90 minutes. LA Galaxy did create a couple of good opportunities, which we are not converted. Houston Dynamo’s inconsistent form continued with a 1-0 loss against Seattle Sounders. After a first half without a large number of opportunities, Will Bruin broke the deadlock in the 69th minute and this helped Seattle register another 1-0 win.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Houston Dynamo come into the game with no wins in the seven away matches. In fact, they have taken a grand total of just one point from these matches. LA Galaxy have certainly found form at the right time, but the club has managed only one win in the six home matches. On this occasion, though, Houston Dynamo’s extraordinary poor form could put LA Galaxy on the way towards a victory. I would back a LA Galaxy win.

LA Galaxy have really struggled for defensive solidarity, but the club has managed two clean sheets in the last four home games. Importantly, Houston Dynamo have failed to score in five out of the last six away games. I would back a LA Galaxy clean sheet.

LA Galaxy win – 19/20

LA Galaxy clean sheet – 2/1

LA Galaxy Preview

LA Galaxy have finally been able to find momentum that would see them rise up the MLS 2017 table. The club are unbeaten in the last seven matches of all competitions, while they have also been able to register three wins in the last four league matches. After having managed only two wins in the opening nine matches of the season, Galaxy have been able to go one better. Crucially, the club has been able to outscore the opposition rather than defend the way towards success. Giovanni Dos Santos has been in good form and he has joined Romain Alessandrini as the club’s top scorer with six league goals.

LA Galaxy Team News

Curt Onalfo will be without Robbie Rogers (malleolar), Baggio Husidic (fibula fracture), Jermaine Jones (ligament), and Sebastian Lletget (foot) due to injury. Jelle Van Dame is suspended for the game.

Houston Dynamo Preview

Houston Dynamo disastrous form on the road continues to prevent the club from shaking up the 2017 MLS table. Even though the club has been able to register an impressive seven wins in the eight home games, they are yet to win in the seven matches on the road. Incredibly, Houston Dynamo have taken just a single point from a possible 21 on the road. Manager Wilmer Cabrera will have reasons to be concerned as the team has been performing well and creating decent chances on the road. Erick Torres remains the club’s top scorer with 10 league goals.

Houston Dynamo Team News

George Malki (cruciate ligament) and Eric Alexander (ligament) are the players unavailable for Houston Dynamo.
