Minnesota United vs LA Galaxy Match Preview
Minnesota United are hoping for a better campaign in their new purpose-built stadium. After only entering Major League Soccer for the first time two years ago, their performances have been pretty average so far with two ninth-placed finishes to their name and no play-off campaigns to date, but the Loons opened the Allianz Field with a 3-3 draw against New York City last week and they’ll now be hoping to kick on in a new environment.
Having only played one of their seven Major League Soccer fixtures so far this season in front of their own supporters, Adrian Heath and his side will be fairly happy with their current standing of sixth in the table, despite only winning one of their last five outings. With the new stadium expected to be packed out again here, can United pick up their first ever at the Allianz Field at odds of 21/20 with William Hill.
Both Los Angeles clubs have started the season in terrific form. Although LAFC currently lead the way in the Western Conference with 22 points from their opening nine games, LA Galaxy are not far behind with 18 points from two fewer matches. They make the trip to Saint Paul on Wednesday night in terrific form too, having won their last five consecutive Major League Soccer outings – although four of them have been in front of their own fans.
Having enjoyed superstars like David Beckham and now currently Zlatan Ibrahimovic in their ranks over the years, the Galaxy are always amongst the most revered sides in Major League Soccer and they’ll be looking to end a five year wait for a sixth MLS Cup this year, particularly after the disappointment of missing out on the play-offs altogether last season. You can back them for the points at odds of 5/2 with Bet365.
We’re backing the visitors to pick up three points in this game, despite the odds being against them. Home advantage does have more of an effect in MLS due to the lengthy travelling arrangements and lack of away support, but Minnesota United are still getting used to their new home and here they come up against the most in-form team in the division. Both teams have scored in the Loons last five games, so we do see them getting on the scoresheet here, but the away win and both teams to score bet looks like decent value at 4/1 with Bet365.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in typically prolific form at the start of this Major League Soccer season. The Swedish striker has racked up no fewer than seven goals in his five league appearances so far this season, including a penalty in the weekend win over Houston Dynamo. We can’t resist backing him to find the net again in this clash.
