Welcome back to CaptainGambling.com, where we have the latest MLS betting tips just for you! This weekend, there’s plenty of soccer action to get stuck into. This includes a highly-anticipated Los Angeles derby on Saturday night, eagerly-awaited by many MLS fans in the US.
It’s the second LA derby of the season, as these two met all the way back in May. Here, we’re going to take a look at LAFC and LA Galaxy this season, as well as their previous head to head results. Then, we’ll show you our expert betting tip for the upcoming encounter - which LA side will win on Saturday?
When we look at the home team so far this season, we can see that it has been an average year for LAFC. On top of that, LAFC are in a poor run of form at the minute, and are without a win in their last seven games. That includes a poor 2-1 defeat in their last game, last weekend, to a struggling Vancouver Whitecaps side. Now, the home side face a tough challenge against their city rivals. They are only three points off a playoff spot, despite the poor run of results, which will give them hope for the rest of the season. With a good result against LA Galaxy, they’ll give themselves confidence.
In the Western Conference, there are four teams fighting at the top, all battling it out for the top spot. LA Galaxy are one of those four teams, currently fourth in the west. They are seven points ahead of the rest of the teams, but are seven points off leaders Seattle Sounders. With that said, they are still in with a chance for a playoff spot come the end of the regular season. However, LA Galaxy have lost their last two games, both at home, and both ending in 2-1 scorelines. Now, travelling across the city to LAFC, Galaxy will be looking to turn around their form and get an all-important three points in their hunt for the top teams in the conference.
As we have already mentioned, this is the second Los Angeles clash of the season, with the first back in May. In this one, it was LA Galaxy that were at home, and came away 2-1 winners. In their last five encounters, Galaxy have won three, while LAFC have won the other two. They are also extremely familiar with one another, as the two LA sides have met five times in the last 13 months - just over a year. Both teams will know what to expect, and we can’t wait to see the next instalment at the weekend.
