Our football match prediction:
Despite the fact that key player Ricardo Kaka missed Sunday’s football game with injury, Orlando City defeated New York Red Bulls at their Orlando City Stadium. The Lions recorded their fourth win of the season and they are high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s match against LA Galaxy. Orlando aim to keep their 100% record at home intact and we predict that the will go all guns blazing at Curt Onalfo’s troops. LA Galaxy did well to beat Montreal Impact at their Stubhub Center at the weekend, with the likes of Alessandrini and Jones scoring for the hosts. It has to be noted, though, that Montreal midfielder Donadel was sent off after 44 minutes. Curt Onalfo’s men face an uphill task in Saturday’s clash against Orlando City and we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In their last meeting at Orlando City Stadium the hosts emerged triumphant (4-0).
Highlighted Player (Ricardo Kaka):
Ricardo Kaka is regarded as one of the most significant MLS stars. The Brazilian ace spent six seasons (2003/2009) at Stadio San Siro with Milan and he scored 70 goals in 193 league appearances for the Rossoneri. In 2007 he helped the Serie A giants beat Liverpool in the Champions League final. Real Madrid chiefs were eager to sign Kaka and they managed to bring him to Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on June 30, 2009. The Brazil international, though, was playing below expectations for Real Madrid and due to the lack of first-team football he decided to return to Milan in 2013. Kaka scored seven goals in 30 league appearances in his second spell with the Rossoneri and in 2014 he moved to MLS, signing a contract with Orlando City. Speaking of his international career, the Orlando City superstar clinched the FIFA World Cup trophy with Brazil in 2002. It has to be noted that Kaka was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2007.
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 of the CONCACAF Champions League in 2000 is considered the club’s biggest success. The MLS outfit outplayed Olimpia of Hunduras 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.
