LA Galaxy vs New York City FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Even the arrival of manager Sigi Schmid has not made a difference to LA Galaxy’s results, as the team slipped to a 3-1 loss against Portland Timbers. Liam Ridgewell early goal was cancelled out by Ema Boetang. This led to a period of strong performance from Galaxy, but the shoulders dropped once Diego Valeri scored from a stunning long-range effort. A second-half goal from Alvas Powell condemned Galaxy to the first defeat under Schmid. New York City were able to register a 3-2 win over rivals New York Red Bulls. A brace from Bradley Wright Phillips cancelled out an early goal from David Villa. The Spaniard, though, had the last laugh after completing his hat-trick in the second half to help City win the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Galaxy came up with a good performance in the last home game against Seattle Sounders. The team also played well in patches against Portland Timbers. Galaxy might just be able to capitalise on New York City’s poor away form to register a first win under Schmid. I would opt for a LA Galaxy win. There has been more than 2.5 goals in the last five games for New York City FC, while it is a similar story with regard to three of the last five games. I would go with over 2.5 goals in this match.

LA Galaxy Preview

The arrival of Schmid has made an impact but only in patches. The confidence within the players is at a rock bottom, and it was quite clearly apparent when Diego Valeri re-established Portland’s lead in the last match. A lack of wins at home in the last eight games mean that Galaxy cannot find solace at the Stubhub Center as of now. The team’s away form is also disappointing with just one win in the last five. Galaxy have been able to pick up just one win since the turn of July. None of the Galaxy players have entered into double figures for the season, while Romain Alessandrini continues to remain as the top scorer with eight league goals.

LA Galaxy Team News

Robbie Rogers (malleolar), Baggio Husidic (fibula fracture), and Sebastian Lletget (foot) remain on the sidelines for LA Galaxy.

New York City FC Preview

New York City are being driven by the goals of David Villa, who has become the top scorer in the 2017 MLS table with 17 league goals. Even though the club have only picked up two wins in the last five league matches, New York City remain within touching distance of the top two places in the Eastern Conference. The club have been aided immensely by the home form, as they have won five of the last six games at the Yankee stadium. On the contrary, they have suffered four defeats in the last five away games of all competitions. Villa has overtaken Nemanja Nikolic with his hat-trick against New York Red Bulls.

New York City FC Team News

Miguel Camargo (wound), James Sands (hip), and Ronald Matarrita (foot) are the players unavailable for New York City.
