Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on Banc of California Stadium when Los Angeles FC and LA Galaxy face each other in the local derby on Monday morning. Los Angeles have been in a splendid form of late and seeing that Mexico international Carlos Vela looks unstoppable in the 2019 MLS season, it is no wonder the hosts are considered hot favourites to pick up all three points from the clash.
Bob Bradley’s team have been scoring goals for fun at their Banc of California Stadium and we are positive that they are going to stick to their attacking style of play against LA Galaxy. The visitors, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Seattle Sounders in their last league match, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a brace for Guillermo Barros’ troops. However, seeing that LA Galaxy will be without suspended defender Daniel Steres is Monday’s football match, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Danilo Silva):
Danilo Aparecido da Silva is a Brazilian centre back and right defender who has been with Dynamo Kyiv since 2010. Having begun his career in the private football centre called Gol de Placa, Danilo Silva is no stranger to being forced to move all across the world in an unexpected manner to find his place under the sun.
At the beginning of 2010 he was an urgent signing required and requested by Valeriy Gazaev, who flew Danilo from half across the world to fill in the vacancy. Five years before that, Danilo Silva travelled in the same manner from his native Kampinas to New York and settling in Kyiv was not the problem for the disciplined defender.
Fourth most outstanding foreigner when it comes to a number of performances for the Ukrainian side, Danilo Silva enjoys great respect in Dynamo, which he worked hard to earn. He has long passed the 100-game mark for the Ukraine giants and is one of the key performers for Serhiy Rebrov’s side.
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.
