LA Galaxy vs Columbus Crew by Sojlund

LA Galaxy are going through a bad period of form, the team trained by Bruce Arena is on a run of 7 games without a win, the last win dates of 23 July, away from home against the Portland Timbers. Since then the Galaxy, drawn 6 games and lost only one. With this bad results the team droped to the 4th place on the table with 40 points in 26 games, 8 points behind the leaders FC Dallas. This is a important game for the Galaxy team who are in risk of dropping the top 5 places, if the team continues with this kind of performances. For this game Bruce Arena have some serious issues with important players ruled out, Jelle Van Damme, Gyasi Zardes and Steven Gerrard will all miss this important game against the Crew. So all the focus will be on Gio Dos Santos to deliver, he didn´t impressed till now with only 2 goals scored in the last 10 MLS games, so he needs to step up, if LA are to make a run for the West Conference title.


On the other hand, Columbus Crew come to this game in the 9th place of West Conference, with 26 points in 25 games. In the last 13 games in the MLS, the Crew only won 2, and those 2 wins came in the last 3 games, against the San Jose Earthquakes and the New England Revolution. Altough they are having a bad season, the truth is that they are only 6 points behind the play-offs spot, so this game is very important for they aspirations of going to the play-offs. It will be hard for them to get a win at LA, they are one of the worst away sides in the entire league, and playing in Los Angeles is hard for any team, even more for a team that usually doesnt do good playing as visitors.


Two teams that are going through not so good times, this is almost a must win game for both the teams, so i expect alot of tension on this game, both teams now what is on the line here, and with the absences because of international duties and injurys, i don´t think this game will have alot of goals, my prediction for this game is maybe an 1-0 victory for Galaxy or a 1-1 draw.
