Match preview

LA Galaxy currently sit above the play-off line, but will they remain there?

Last weekend, LA hammered a covid-decimated Vancouver Whitecaps 5-2 in Carson, scoring 5+ in an MLS game for the first time since September 2019.

Samuel Grandsir with a first half brace, while Javier Hernández, Víctor Vázquez and Efraín Álvarez all also netted at Dignity Health Sports Park.

This is also the first time the Galaxy have scored four times in the first half of a game for over six years.

Before this, Greg Vanney’s men had actually lost five of their previous six matches, sliding outside the play-off places in this period.

All four of LA’s wins since 8 May have come at home, so will they win back-to-back games for the first time since early-April?

As for Seattle Sounders, despite winning CONCACAF Champions League back in May, they’re in serious danger of missing the post-season.

The Rave Green were beaten again last weekend, this time going down 2-1 at home to Real Salt Lake.

Albert Rusnák equalised on the hour mark, only for RSL to go up the end and score the decisive go-ahead goal mere seconds later.

That’s now consecutive defeats for Brian Schmetzer’s side, who’ve actually lost seven of their last ten games.

That makes it Seattle’s worst form since the summer of 2016, a run that saw the late great Sigi Schmid sacked.

Schmetzer’s position certainly isn’t under threat but, with just nine regular season games to go, the Sounders’ post-season place defiantly is.

Who will win this blockbuster Friday night fixture?
