Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on Dignity Health Sports Park when Los Angeles Galaxy and St Louis City face each other on Sunday morning. LA Galaxy have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Chicago Fire (3-0) and San Jose Earthquakes (3-2), while sharing the spoils with Houston Dynamo.
Dejan Joveljic is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts after failing to make the cut for the Serbia’s qualifier against Hungary, while all Douglas Costa, Jalen Neal, Gaston Brugman, Martin Caceres, and Javier Hernandez are sidelined with injuries. The Western Conference leaders, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Sporting Kansas City, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the hosts. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to California.
