Orlando City vs LA Galaxy
|Date & Time||Sunday July 29, 2018, 9:30 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
The LA Galaxy will be in action at home this weekend as they prepare to host Orlando City at the Starhub Center. This is a big game between two teams in the big franchises and this implies there is more value given to points won. Both sides will be desperate to win and I think that should ensure that we get a top quality game of football.
The LA Galaxy have been a much-improved side since the arrival of Sweden, Manchester United and AC Milan superstar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The big striker has scored many goals and has led from the front which has had a big impact on all the players. The Galaxy are moving up the ladder and it seems like the playoffs are very realistic for the team. This should ensure that players know the importance of this fixture and the value of getting three points. I expect the LA Galaxy to play an attacking brand of football with the intentions of winning.
On the other side of the coin, Orlando City will look to get a result away from home. It has been a tough season for the Lions and since the retirement of Kaka, the team has lacked a leader. It will be important for Orlando City that they can improve and move up the ladder since no team wants to finish near the bottom. Orlando City will hope that some of the top players can improve and perform well to give the visitors a chance of not losing. That being said, it is going to be very tough since the LA Galaxy are a top team and Orlando City are not.
All in all, I am going to predict that LA Galaxy wins this match. The home side is far too good for Orlando City and at the Starhub Center, I don’t think the visitors have a chance. Expect this to be a high scoring game since Orlando City have a poor defense and Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been scoring goals for fun.
