New York City FC vs LA Galaxy Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

New York City were able to get an opening day 2-0 win over Sporting Kansas City. Patrick Vieira’s men were quite clinical with their chances and Maximiliano Moralez opened the scoring in the 32nd minute. Jesus Medina doubled the advantage for New York City in the second half. Despite Maxime Chanot’s late red card, New York City held on for a win and a clean sheet. LA Galaxy were unable to put behind the Demons of last season to register a 2-1 win over Portland Timbers in the opening game. New signing Ola Kamara made an instant impact with a 32nd minute goal, while Romain Alessandrini doubled the advantage just two minutes later. Even though Sebastian Blanco pulled one back for Portland in the 66th minute, the game ended as a strong win for the hosts.

Betting Tips and Predictions

New York City have been able to win the last two games against LA Galaxy. They have also been able to do so without conceding a goal. City produced a strong performance in the away match against Kansas City and we can expect an even better performance from Patrick Vieira’s team at the Yankee Stadium. Galaxy may have started with an opening day victory, but it remains to be seen if the team can follow that up with a strong away performance. I would back a win for New York City FC. David Villa has scored in all of the meetings between New York City and LA Galaxy. The striker certainly did not have his best game on the opening day, but the former Spain international is not the kind of player to spend a lot of time away from the scoresheet. I would back Villa to score anytime.

New York City win – 4/7

David Villa to score anytime – 4/6

New York City FC Preview

New York City came in with a solid performance against Sporting Kansas City in the first match. Despite losing some key players like Jack Harrison during the off-season, the club do not seem to have lost any of their attacking zest. Patrick Vieira’s slight concern may come about with regard to David Villa, who seemed off-pace. This could be the striker’s last campaign in professional football and he will be looking to go out on a high. The big strength for New York City is a strong midfield.

New York City FC Team News

Maxime Chanot is suspended after his red card against Sporting Kansas City. Jo Inge Berget (thigh) is the only player unavailable due to injuries.

LA Galaxy Preview

The opening match of the campaign showed LA Galaxy make a significant jump compared to last season. Still, doubts will linger about the club until they go on a run of several consecutive wins. For the time being, the new players like Ola Kamara made an instant impact. However, it remains to be seen if the significant changes made to the squad will have an impact once the dust surrounding the new campaign settles down.

LA Galaxy Team News

Galaxy have a Romain Alessandrini unavailable due to a hamstring injury, while Joao Pedro is missing from action due to a knee injury.
