Our football match prediction:
Portland Timbers were on the verge of beating Houston Dynamo on the road in their last league match Cabezas eventually scored a late equalizer for the hosts. Caleb Porter’s troops suffered only one defeat in last six league games and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Sunday’s football match against LA Galaxy. Nigerian attacker Fanendo Adi has netted ten goals so far this season, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. LA Galaxy have been totally out of form of late and seeing that they suffered five defeats in last six matches in MLS, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the underdogs in this one. In their first meeting of the season Portland Timbers recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over LA Galaxy, with Diego Chara scoring the winner for Caleb Porter’s team and, taking everything into account, home win should be considered.

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.
