Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

The Whitecaps are aiming for a third consecutive win over Galaxy, who enter into the match with a lot of scepticism. Several players are unavailable for the team and this increases the possibility of a home win. Even with Vancouver’s defence being very poor on most occasions, Robinson’s team should have more than enough to get past LA Galaxy. Vancouver Whitecaps have been quite poor at the back with six goals conceded already. Galaxy’s defensive record looks much better with only three goals conceded, but both teams have been quite poor at the back. This makes backing both teams to score extremely attractive. Vancouver Whitecaps win – 4/7 Both teams to score – 3/4

Betting Tips and Predictions

Vancouver Whitecaps’ winning start came to an end after the team lost 4-1 Atlanta United at Mercedes Benz Stadium. The game was effectively over as a contest when Kendall Watson was sent off with a straight red card after just 13 minutes. Goals from Josef Martinez (2) and Aaron Maund (OG) put Atlanta in a strong position. Even though Erik Hurtado pulled one back for Vancouver, Martinez completed his hat-trick to inflict a big defeat. LA Galaxy suffered a loss in only the second match of the league campaign, as they were beaten 2-1 by New York City. Anton Tinnerholm and David Villa scored the two goals that put Galaxy on a path to a defeat. Even though Jonathan Dos Santos did score in the second half, it was only a consolation. Galaxy’s day got worse after Ashley Cole was sent off late in the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

The brilliant start made by Vancouver Whitecaps came to a crashing halt after the humiliation against Atlanta United. Even though Watson’s red card may have been directly attributed to the four goals conceded against Atlanta, there have been plenty of defensive issues for Carl Robinson at the start of the campaign. Even in the first two matches, Vancouver could have ended up conceding a lot more.

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

Brett Levis (thigh) is unavailable due to an injury, while Kendall Watson is suspended for the game. Watson is also away on international duty.

LA Galaxy Preview

LA Galaxy appeared to hit the right path after an opening day victory, but the euphoria has been quickly brought down by the loss against New York City. Sigi Schmid will have to be wary about losing momentum at the start of the campaign. Galaxy went through a poor start in 2017 and never recovered throughout the campaign. The defensive worries for Galaxy still remain, but the club can look forward to three home games in four matches once the Vancouver game has been dealt with.

LA Galaxy Team News

Giovanni Dos Santos (hamstring), Jonathan Dos Santos (hamstring), Romain Alessandrini (hamstring), Joao Pedro (knee), Michael Ciani (thigh), Ema Boateng, and Chris Pontius are missing because of injuries, while manager Sigi Schmid will also be without Ola Kamara new to international action. Ashley Cole will be sitting out of the next couple of games due to a suspension.
