ORLANDO CITY v NEW YORK CITY FC
The Lions should make good use of home turf advantage on this end of the week action. A come-up-from behind victory by the Columbus Crew denied Orlando table points and they’re now at four winless outings. Columbus had 57% ball possession to Orlando’s 43% and the teams recorded 15-9, 6-5 in shots on goal. Jason Kries and co. expected they’d struggle on the road, but not to this end. Return of elite player Kaka is yet to translate into positive results.
NYCFC have secured 9 away points following their 2-0 win over The Black and Gold. They will head to Orlando hoping to keep the clean sheets in each of their three games. Key player David Villa hits with fire. He’s the team’s top goalscorer with 8 goals so far in the season. They had an extra week of rest and just trampled Columbus, the team that rallied to outscore Orlando. Asian handicap experts are tipping on NYCFC to win. (Go big or go home? Settle with NYCFC 3 goals to nil.)
Clash of these two outfits will go down at Orlando City Stadium, 1:00 (UTC/GMT +1).
LOS ANGELES FC V LA GALAXY
LA Galaxy have got their mojo back (9-7-4, 31 points). They are on an excellent winning streak at seven matches, cruising past Philadelphia Union at 3-1. In the center of that play was Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He steered his team to cover opposition’s lead with a release pass to Ola Kamara at 48’ and then let fly from the edge of the penalty area in a torrential downpour. The goal is his 12th of 15 games in Los Angeles, his 9th in last 6 starts. The win takes the club into fourth in Western Conference, so we’ll see more of them in the playoffs. Up next for them is the El Trafico match with LAFC (10-5-5, 35 points) at Banc of California Stadium.
Hosts Minnesota United continues slick form, demolishing flyers LAFC at 5-1 in the process. Feilhaber managed to equalize Schueller’s effort before Ramirez and Quintero found the net. LAFC had double change at interval but Ibarra managed to glide up a fourth through open defence then provide another shot for Ramirez to complete upset. LAFC only haven’t scored in 1/9 home matches this season at average 2.14 goals. They sit second with 10 wins out of 20MP with 1.6 conceded goals. LA Galaxy have 1.9 goals scored average at home and have already defeated LAFC once this season. Punters can gladly take the Over 2.25 goals line here as we can expect this derby to turn into a goalfest.
