Indicating their appetite for eventful matches, we’ve had goals 20 times in the prior six matches in which Vancouver Whitecaps have sent out their troops, making it a mean average of 3.33 goals for each meeting. Opposition teams have managed 15 of this grand total. With no two games being the same, we must now wait to see whether the trend will be maintained in this upcoming match.

Team News: Los Angeles Galaxy
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Los Angeles Galaxy manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Danilo Acosta (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: Vancouver Whitecaps
Whitecaps manager Marc Dos Santos has some current player fitness concerns. Jasser Khmiri (Unknown Injury), Thomas Hasal (Concussion) and Maxime Crépeau (Fractured Thumb) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We envisage that Vancouver Whitecaps are likely to find the back of the net against this Los Angeles Galaxy outfit, although it may not be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re expecting both teams to score in a 2-1 win for Los Angeles Galaxy by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
