Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex when Seattle Sounders and Los Angeles face each other in the MLS is back tournament last 16. Seattle rolled over Vancouver Whitecaps 3-0 to book their place in the playoffs, with Uruguay international Nicolas Lodeiro continuing where he left last season. The Sounders are seen as underdogs in Tuesday’s football match, but they should take advantage of the fact that Los Angeles FC arrived in Florida without key attacker Carlos Vela.
Bob Bradley’s men, though, have been scoring goals for fun at the MLS is back tournament, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Seattle. Taking everything into account, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last encounter in MLS Seattle outplayed Los Angeles FC 3-1.
