DC United vs Los Angeles FC Match Preview
DC United have been in fine form early in the new campaign and they now host Los Angeles FC for their Saturday’s clash looking to extend a perfect run in front of the home fans, where they already beat Atlanta United (2-0) and Real Salt Lake (5-0) led by an in-form Wayne Rooney in the final third.
Black-and-Red have also bagged a 1-2 win at Orlando City with first-half goals from Steven Birnbaum and Rooney, surely coming into an important home match in a great mood. They have a lot to prove early in the new campaign and Ben Olsen’s men have been doing it so far.
Los Angeles FC have been in great shape too, though, and promise a solid challenge at Audi Field as they travel on the back of a convincing 0-5 win over California rivals SJ Earthquakes. Carlos Vela netted a hat-trick as Beitashour and Rossi added one each for Bob Bradley’s side to bag the fourth win in five outings – with just a single draw along the way.
LAFC saw a thrilling 2-2 draw against New York City on the road this term as well, which should also give them a lot to build on. They top the Western Conference table with 13 points to their name and an upset here would be a great way to prove their worth amid a great streak.
However, we don’t see them causing an upset this time around and we’ll now stick our necks out for DC United to bag all three points with a Home win priced at 11/8 with bet365 – which would be their third consecutive win in front of the home fans.
LAFC should force the rivals into a thriller contest for the points and we’ll thus also go for a high-scoring contest, where Over 2.5 Goals FT looks like buying money for old rope at 1/2 with William Hill.
