Our football match prediction:
Los Angeles Galaxy have been struggling to find their best form at the start of the season. Curt Onalfo’s men have already suffered three defeats in the 2017 MLS campaign and they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps in their last league match. Latest signing Romain Alessandrini scored two goals in the defeat to the Canadian outfit and he will be the man to watch in the home team in Saturday’s football game against Montreal Impact. Los Angeles were the dominant force in MLS during David Beckham’s era, but they do not seem to be on top of game nowadays. Montreal are eyeing their first win of the season and they head into the match following a thrilling 2-2 draw with Chicago Fire. We predict that the Impact are going to stick to their attacking style of play and, taking everything into account, both teams to score bet should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Ashley Cole):
After ending his spell with Arsenal Ashley Cole joined fellow capital club Chelsea in 2006. Arsenal fans were angry with the England full back, who “betrayed” the Gunners and signed a contract with their fierce local rivals. Ashley Cole, though, was hungry for trophies and in 2011/2012 he won the Champions League title with the Blues. He won the 2009/2010 Premier League trophy with the Stamford Bridge outfit as well and he played for Chelsea in a 2-1 win over Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final. Ashley Cole was part of Roma from 2014 to 2016 and in the 2016 January transfer window he signed a deal with MLS club LA Galaxy. The left-footed defender made 29 appearances for Galaxy last season, scoring only one goal in the process. The experience footballer, who was born on December 20, 1980 in London, made his England debut against Albania in March, 2001. Speaking of his individual awards, Ashley Cole was named England Player of the Year in 2010.
Highlighted Team (Montreal Impact):
Montreal Impact are a Canadian soccer team, but they compete in Major League Soccer. The Impact are a member of the Eastern Conference and they have been participating in the major league since 2012. Montreal welcome their opponents at Saputo Stadium and the capacity of the club’s home ground is 20.801. The construction of the stadium cost CA$17 million and the venue was opened on May 18, 2008. The Saputo family invested $7.5 million in the construction of the stadium and, as a result, the venue was named Saputo Stadium. Montreal Impact did remarkably well to make it to the CONCACAF Champions League final in the 2014/2015 season, but Mexican team America proved to be a big catch for the Canadian outfit in the title game. Speaking of the Canadian championship, the Impact won their third domestic trophy in 2014, with the team beating Toronto FC in the final of the tournament. Montreal Impact play their home matches in blue and black shirts and black shorts, while the colour of their away kit is white.
