LA Galaxy vs Vancouver Whitecaps
LA Galaxy to win and both teams to score NO- 7/4!
After last weekend’s humbling defeat at Children’s Mercy Park, can LA Galaxy get back on track?
A week ago, the Galaxy found themselves 3-0 down against the west’s bottom side Sporting Kansas City.
Javier Hernández did set up a grand-stand finish, bagging a quick-fire brace, but, as LA pushed for an unlikely equaliser, SKC slotted home a fourth.
That’s now back-to-back defeats for Greg Vanney’s team, who’ve actually lost five of their last six.
This has seen the Galaxy slip out the top seven, with them now down in ninth.
Vancouver Whitecaps meantime kick off in Carson only below their hosts on goal difference.
The Blue-and-White dramatically beat Houston last Friday night at BC Place.
Simon Becher equalising in the final minute of normal time on debut, before Lucas Cavallini’s shot squirmed under the goalkeeper in the fourth minute of added time.
The Caps are the fourth team this season, and third that week, to win an MLS match, despite trailing in the 88th minute.
This had only occurred three times in the previous three seasons combined.
The Canadian Championship winners were winless in five MLS games before this, but Vanni Sartini’s side are now right back in the play-off conversation.
Thus, three crucial points are on the line at Dignity Health Sports Park.
