Our prediction for this MLS match:
Dallas and Los Angeles Galaxy square off against each other at Toyota Stadium in a highly-anticipated MLS game. Dallas defeated Real Salt Lake thanks to Jesus Ferreira’s goal, but it has to be noted that the Royals failed to turn their dominance in goal attempts and ball possession into equalizer. Lucas Bartlett remains in the treatment room, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
LA Galaxy, on the other hand, did well to put an end to their three-match losing run, with the team beating Atlanta United 2-0 at the weekend. Chicharito and Co. aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but beating the Toros on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. Both Jorge Villafana and Adam Saldana are injured for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Matt Hedges):
Matthew Hedges is a 193-cm tall centre back who was born in Rochester, New York on April 1, 1990. At the age of 18 he started his college career at Butler Bulldogs and in 2011 he moved to North Carolina Tar Heels. After scoring 18 goals in total in college football, Matt played for Reading United before joining MLS club FC Dallas.
The American footballer has been playing for FC Dallas since 2012 and in 2016 he won both US Open Cup and Supporters’ Shield with the Toros. Matthew Hedges made his debut for USA national soccer team on February 8, 2015, coming as a substittute in the 72nd minute in a friendly against Panama.
2017 was the most successful year of his career as he won the CONCACAF Gold Cup with the Yenks. USA defeated Jamaica 2-1 in the title game, but Matt Hedges was not given an opportunity to play in the final. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Los Angeles Galaxy):
Los Angeles Galaxy are probably the most famous American soccer club. The club have been participating in the MLS since 1996 and San Jose Earthquakes are considered their bitterest rivals. A number of top-class players were part of the team in the past, but, no doubt, David Beckham is the club’s most significant star. The former Manchester United star played for LA Galaxy from 2007 to 2012 and he scored 18 goals in 98 appearances in the league for the club.
Fellow England international Steven Gerrard is yet another Premier League ace who joined LA Galaxy. Stevie G signed a $9 million deal with the club in June, 2015. One year before he arrived to Los Angeles, the Galaxy won their fifth MLS Cup, with the team beating New England Revolution (2-1) in the final of the tournament, but winning the CONCACAF Champions League in 2000 is considered the club’s biggest success. The MLS outfit outplayed Olimpia of Honduras in the title game, with Ezra Hendrickson scoring the winning goal ten minutes before the final whistle.
Los Angeles Galaxy play their home games at StubHub Center, the stadium that was opened on June 1, 2003. The capacity of the venue is 27.000.
