Los Angeles FC vs Vancouver Whitecaps Match Preview
Los Angeles FC have been very convincing as they beat Sporting KC (1-5) midway through the week and Christian Ramírez, Diego Rossi, Carlos Vela, Rodolfo Zelaya, and Mohammed Mounir all made it on the scoresheet, bouncing back to the winning ways and now hosting Vancouver Whitecaps in great spirits.
Indeed, LAFC have been denied in a shock 1-0 loss at Colorado Rapids beforehand but this only interrupted the streak where they bagged five wins in six outings. Bob Bradley’s men thus sit six points in the clear with a game in hand to chasers LA Galaxy, which should have them just as motivated to keep it up.
Vancouver Whitecaps come into the match better rested but they’ve seen a disappointing 1-0 loss at Seattle Sounders on Sunday, which only ended a streak of three consecutive draws – as they shared the spoils with Toronto (1-1), Rapids (2-2), Dallas (2-2) and dropped six points behind the Western Conference top 7.
Caps only failed to find the net on the road for the first time in five trips as they dropped the points at CenturyLink Field last week, as Kelvin Leerdam netted a last-gasp winner in a very narrow contest, and Marc Dos Santos will now want more from his men. However, getting it against pace-setters will obviously be a very tough task.
Backing Los Angeles FC to turn this one their way really feels like buying money for old rope but we hope to see the visitors make it an exciting contest, though, and we’ll now go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score – which comes at 13/8 with William Hill.
We have seen LAFC conceding on the regular and mainly rely on a deadly attacking line to outgun the rivals, which has us hoping for more of the same. With that in mind, we’re also going for a high-scoring contest with Over 3.5 Goals FT at 6/5 with Paddy Power.
