LA Galaxy vs Vancouver Whitecaps Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

LA Galaxy had one of their worst nights, as they suffered a 6-2 loss against Real Salt Lake. Albert Rusnak, Kyle Beckerman, Yura Movsisyan, Jefferson Savarino (2), and Joao Plata all ended up on the scoresheet to send LA Galaxy to a humiliating defeat. Goals from Ashley Cole and Bradford Jamieson did not have much of an impact for the home team. Vancouver Whitecaps were once again amongst the winners after a 3-2 victory over New York City. Fredy Montero’s early goal was cancelled out by Maxime Chanot and David Villa. However, Jordan Harvey and Yordy Reyna scored in the second half second-half to put Vancouver in front once again. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Galaxy’s confidence cannot be any lower with the team suffering three consecutive league defeats. Furthermore, Galaxy are without a home win in the last six. Vancouver Whitecaps have managed just a single win in the last six away matches against Galaxy, but Robinson’s team comes into the game on a decent run of form. The Whitecaps have also had the better of recent meetings with Galaxy by winning three out of the last six. I would back a win for Vancouver Whitecaps. Vancouver Whitecaps have scored in four out of the last five away matches, while LA Galaxy have conceded 13 in the last five league games. Nine out of the last 10 MLS games involving LA Galaxy have seen both teams score. I see excellent value in backing both teams to score.

Vancouver Whitecaps win – 3/4

Both teams to score – 4/6

LA Galaxy Preview

Galaxy have been going through such a disastrous run of form – across all matches – that it is starting to threaten the future of manager Curt Onalfo. The club has lost three competitive games in succession. While specifically focusing on the MLS games, LA Galaxy have managed one win – against strugglers Colorado Rapids – in the last five. More than the lack of victories, manager Curt Onalfo will be concerned about the alarming drop in defensive form. Galaxy have conceded an incredible 13 goals in the last five league games. Romain Alessandrini remains the top scorer for Galaxy with eight league goals.

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps might have managed just two wins in the last five league games, but they have suffered only one defeat in the process. Manager Carlo Robinson is starting to see his team covert some of the defeats into stalemates. Vancouver have only been involved in three draws this season, and two of those draws have come in the last five league games. The away form has nothing much to shout about with the team managing just two wins in six. However, they have lost only three away matches. Fredy Montero with five league goals is the top scorer at Vancouver this season.
