LA Galaxy vs Montreal Impact Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

LA Galaxy came up on the wrong side of a spectacular game with Vancouver Whitecaps, as they lost 4-2 on the road. Vancouver took the lead through Cristian Techera in the 19th minute, but a four-minute spell saw LA Galaxy score twice through Romain Alessandrini. Galaxy were unable to hold the lead, as Vancouver came back in front through a goal from Fredy Montero and a brace from Matias Laba. Montreal Impact’s winless start to the 2017 MLS regular season continued following a 2-2 draw with Chicago Fire. World Cup winner Bastian Schweinsteiger opened the scoring in the 16th minute, but goals from Matteo Mancosu and Jean Tabla gave Montreal an advantage going into the final few minutes. Luis Solignac’s injury time goal meant another heartbreak for Montreal. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

LA Galaxy may have lost the opening two home games, but their opponents Portland Timbers and Dallas have been excellent at the start of the season. Against Montreal Impact, though, Galaxy could be set for a first home win of the season. Galaxy looked better with the likes of Giovanni Dos Santos and Ashley Cole back in the team, but Montreal have shown plenty of spirit in the last few games. I would back a draw. Montreal Impact have failed to score only once in the four games this season. It is an identical record to that possessed by LA Galaxy. I would back both teams to score.

Draw – 5/2

Both teams to score – 7/10

LA Galaxy Preview

LA Galaxy would be disappointed with the start of the season, as they have lost three out of the four games. The club are still awaiting the first win at StubHub Center in the 2017 campaign. Even though most of the big guns returned to the LA Galaxy team, the crushing 4-2 loss against Vancouver speaks volumes about the team’s low confidence levels. However, Galaxy have a great opportunity to build form, as four of their next five games are at home. Last season, the club suffered just one home defeat but they have already doubled the statistic this season.

Montreal Impact Preview

Montreal Impact remain winless in the 2017 MLS season, but they have come close on two occasions. The games against Seattle Sounders and Chicago Fire saw the team concede late goals to extend the wait for a first league win of the season. One of the few positives for the club is that they have scored in the last three games. Montreal Impact had the third best away record in the 2016 season’s Eastern conference table, as they managed four wins and seven draws. Even though this campaign began with the loss against San Jose Earthquakes, Montreal Impact have done well in the last two away matches.
