Our prediction for this MLS match:
After recording three consecutive wins in MLS, New York Red Bulls suffered a 3-2 loss to Columbus Crew in their last league fixture. The Metros aim to return to winning ways in the Major League Soccer and there is every chance they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Monday’s football game against Los Angeles FC. New York Red Bulls recorded four wins in previous five home games in MLS, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Los Angeles FC. A man to watch in the home team will be Bradley Wright-Phillips, who scored his 100th MLS goal earlier in July. Los Angeles FC dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Los Angeles Galaxy in the local derby at the weekend and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course. A lively contest is on the cards, but seeing that the newcomers suffered a 5-1 loss to Minnesota United in their last away game, home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Alejandro Romero Gamarra):
Born in Ciudadela, Argentina on January 11, 1995, Alejandro Romero Gamarra is an attacking midfielder who plays for New York Red Bulls. The Argentine footballer, commonly known as Kaku, began his youth career at Huracan and he continued playing for el Globo at senior level.
After scoring nine goals in 94 appearances for the club, Kaku joined New York Red Bulls in the winter of 2018. Alejandro Romero Gamarra made his MLS debut for the Metros in a 2-0 win over Olimpia in the CONCACAF Champions League. Gamarra scored his first goal for New York Red Bulls in a 3-1 triumph over Club Tijuana in the CONCACAF Champions League.
Kaku has yet to earn a call-up for Argentina national team, but he made 5 appearances for the U20 team. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he can be used as a winger as well. In the 2013/2014 season he won Copa Argentina with Huracan.
Highlighted Team (Los Angeles FC):
Seeing that Los Angeles FC will be competing in Major League Soccer from the 2018 season, the club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad. Several high-profile players joined the club in the winter of 2018, with Mexican ace Carlos Vela being the biggest name to sign a deal with LAFC.
The new expansion team will host their rivals at Banc of California, the stadium which is planned to be opened on April 29, 2018. The venue should hold up to 22,000 spectators. Los Angeles FC will be coached by Bob Bradley in the 2018 MLS campaign and they will be wearing black and gold kits in the USA professional soccer league. Speaking of their bitterest rivals, there will be fireworks when Los Angeles FC face LA Galaxy in the Major League Soccer.
District 9 Ultras and Black Army 1850 are considered the club's biggest supporters groups and it has to be noted that they used to support Chivas USA. Los Angeles FC were founded on October 30, 2014.
