Welcome back! We have another upcoming matchday in the MLS this weekend, which only means one thing - more soccer betting tips just for you! Here at CaptainGambling.com, we’ve selected three games over the course of the weekend to focus on, bringing you the best betting tips available.
One of the first fixtures of the weekend sees Minnesota United host LA Galaxy, with both teams currently in a playoff spot in the Western Conference. It’s going to be an extremely exciting encounter, as both sides look to take an all-important three points. Check out our latest betting tip for the match below!
After what was a very underwhelming and disappointing start to the campaign, Minnesota really have turned their season around. Unbeaten in their last five - with some impressive wins against Seattle and Portland - Minnesota have only lost once in their previous 12 matches. Now, entering the second half of the 2021 season, Minnesota have got some serious momentum to continue with. Their last two losses came against Colorado Rapids (clearly a difficult opponent for the home side), but have certainly improved on their start to the season. This weekend, they have a tough test hosting LA Galaxy.
Despite a disappointing recent 4-0 defeat to FC Dallas, LA Galaxy find themselves within two points of the leaders in the Western Conference. It has been a strong season so far for the upcoming away side, and will certainly be looking to continue their position at the top end of the conference. At the moment, the third-placed side are unbeaten in their last three games in the league, and have a great opportunity to put pressure on the teams around them. With a win, LA Galaxy would temporarily lead the conference in the No.1 spot, meaning the other sides would have to get a result in their respective games.
Even though the two teams are both in the Western Conference - due to the restructure of the MLS this season - Minnesota United have not played LA Galaxy since October 2019. The head to head results are extremely one-sided, with LA unbeaten in their last five games against this weekend’s opponents. Galaxy have won three of the last five, with the other two ending in stalemates. Nonetheless, the team on the road will definitely want to build some confidence heading into the fixture, knowing they have the upper hand in previous years.
Before we reveal our expert betting tip for the game, we have compiled all of the details below regarding the two teams’ previous encounters. You will find the specific results, as well as statistical highlights. After analyzing all of the information, we have put together our prediction for Minnesota vs LA.
With everything taken into consideration, we are predicting that it will be LA Galaxy that come away with all three points on Saturday! As well as that, our tip includes that both teams will find the back of the net inside 90 minutes.
When we look at the two teams involved in Saturday’s fixture, we are predicting that it will be a close affair - which is exactly why it’s likely that both teams will be on the scoresheet at the end of the game. However, with that said, LA Galaxy have the attacking quality to get the job done at the weekend. Also, the away side have a great opportunity to put themselves in an extremely positive position in the conference, with other teams playing later in the weekend. We predict that LA Galaxy will travel back to the West Coast with all three points!
