Our prediction for this MLS match:
Los Angeles Galaxy and Colorado Rapids go head to head at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson in what is expected to be an exciting game. LA Galaxy continue life without Serbian winger Aleksandar Katai, who was sold to Red Star in the summer transfer window, but their performances after the coronavirus football break have been anything but poor. You should bear in mind that Schelotto’s men are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground.
Colorado Rapids, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 4-1 loss at Dallas, with the team remaining in 10th position in the Western Conference. Since the Rapids have already suffered three defeats on the road in the 2020 MLS season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. The likes of Ford and Jackson are out of contention for the visitors, with Acosta missing the match for the home team.
Highlighted Player (Jonathan dos Santos):
While playing at a youth tournament in France, Jonathan Dos Santos was spotted by FC Barcelona scouts, who were delighted with what they saw. The Barca chiefs decided to bring Jonathan and his brother Giovani to La Masia, with both passing the trial.
The Mexican midfielder, who was born in Monterrey on April 26, 1990, scored 6 goals in 81 appearances for Barcelona B from 2009 to 2012, but he played no more than 14 games for the senior team in the Spanish top flight. On July 9, 2014 Jonathan dos Santos moved to Villareal and he scored his first La Liga goal in December against Deportivo La Coruna.
The Mexico international played an important role at Villarreal until 2017 when he decided to sign a contract with MLS club Los Angeles Galaxy. The biggest success of his career, though, is winning the UEFA Champions League title in the 2010/2011 season with Barca. Unlike his brother, Jonathan’s preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Colorado Rapids):
Colorado Rapids is a Major League Soccer club and they compete in the USA professional soccer league as a member of the Western Conference. Colorado began their play in MLS back in 1996 and 14 years later they managed to win the MLS Cup trophy. The Rapids recorded a 2-1 win over FC Dallas in the final of the tournament, with George John scoring the winner for Gary Smith’s team in the extra time. Colorado made it to the MLS Cup final in 1997 as well, but D.C. United proved to be a big catch for the club in the title game.
The Rapids play their home games at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and the venue has been Colorado’s home ground since 2007. It has to be noted that the likes of Tim Howard, Carlos Valderama, Claudio Lopez and Jermaine Jones were all part of the club in the past. Colorado’s colors are red, sky blue and white, but they were yellow shirts and blue shorts when playing on the travels.
