Derby day! Welcome to our soccer betting tips. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the upcoming MLS fixtures. We have our dedicated soccer experts on hand to share all the information about the latest fixtures. It’s been an exciting start to the MLS season, and if you’re looking to place some wagers, you’re in the right place.

The First LA Derby of the Season

Not only have our soccer experts looked at the two teams’ previous head-to-head results, but they’ve also put together a betting tip that you can take advantage of. It’s been an interesting start to the season for both LA Galaxy and LAFC, and now they are set to face off on Saturday evening.

LA Galaxy

During the opening weekend, LA Galaxy travelled across the country to face a relatively-new MLS side in Inter Miami. With two goals from striker Javier Hernandez, and the winner from substitute Sacha Kljestan, LA Galaxy came away with a 3-2 win and a strong start to the campaign. Then, a hat-trick from the former Manchester United man (Hernandez) was enough to see off NY Red Bulls in Galaxy’s first home game of the season. After an impressive start to the season, the tables turned - a 3-0 loss away to Seattle Sounders in their latest game was disappointing from Galaxy’s view. The club will definitely be looking to get back on track back at home on Saturday.

LAFC 

On the other side of the city, LAFC have also made a strong start to the season. In the side’s opener, LAFC hosted brand new MLS club Austin FC. With goals from Corey Baird and Jose Cifuentes, LAFC took all three points, which was vital considering they were unsure of what to expect from the new team. Following on, LAFC held Seattle Sounders to a 1-1 draw - the side that comfortably defeated LAFC’s cross-town rivals. A draw with Houston Dynamo in their latest game sees LAFC still undefeated after three games of the season, and will definitely be looking to extend the unbeaten run in their upcoming encounter.

Head to Head 

When our soccer experts looked at the previous encounters between LA Galaxy & LAFC, there was a common theme identified - GOALS! In the last five games, there has been at least two goals at the end of 90 minutes, with the highest scoring involving eight - as LAFC beat their rivals 6-2. Therefore, it’s likely that the pattern will continue, especially for LA Galaxy - star-man Hernandez with five goals in three games. As the first derby of the season, expect both sides to be pushing forward and attacking their opponent.

Statistical Highlights

We told you our soccer experts are committed to the cause, right? Well, they’ve put together all of the stats and details regarding both teams right here. If you’re looking for the full list of LA Galaxy’s & LAFC’s previous head to head results, or their current league form, you’ll find all of that right here.

Our Betting Tip for Today

From all of this information, our experts have predicted that there’s going to be goals, and it’s likely that both teams will find the back of the net in the 90 minutes. It should be an action-packed Derby Day, and both sides will want a win for those bragging rights across the city. As well as that, we’re predicting that Hernandez will find the net at least once for the home side.

Chicarito Continues Goal-Scoring Form; Both Teams to Score

It’s safe to say that Hernandez will be starting up front for LA Galaxy, and he will definitely be the main man for Saturday’s game. Our soccer experts are predicting that he will influence the game and add a sixth goal to his tally for the season. On top of that, as it’s Derby Day, both teams will be feeling some form of pressure, and it will be an intense battle on the pitch. If LAFC want to come away with points, they will be looking to go on the offense early, and could put the ball in the back of the net against LA Galaxy - we’ve seen it happen numerous times in their previous encounters.

Unibet are offering odds at +163 for Javier Hernandez to score anytime and both teams to score.
