Philadelphia vs LA Galaxy
Philadelphia Union host LA Galaxy at Talen Energy Stadium.
I was looking for this match till the beginning of the week and I made my pick about it. It's risky, that's true, but sometimes I like to take bigger risks. Philadephia are not the best home team in the east with stats 5-2-3 and their current form is also not the best one. At home they lost twice in June and July with 0:2 against Atlanta and Toronto. Okay, it's not that bad to lose against one of the best teams in MLS Atlanta, but against the second worst in the East Toronto.. Ilsinho is doubful in their squad, while Joshua Jaro is out, because of injury.
LA Galaxy are playing better and better during the season and they are progressing in the ranking in the West. They don't have a loss till the end of May including 3 away games, where they made 2 draws and a win in their last match against Revolution. They missed Ibrahimovic in their last game, but now he is expected to lead the attack, supported by Kamara, Santos and Pontius. Rolf Feltscher is out because of injury, while Ashley Cole is out being suspended.
Both teams know how to score goals, but also don't have the best defences. When we add the fact Ashley Cole is out for LA Galaxy, we can expect much bigger chances for the home team to score tonight, while Galaxy led by Ibra are always dangerous in attack. H2H Philadelphia don't have a home win against Galaxy in the last 8 seasons for sure, don't have previous stats. Last four games have finished with 2 draws and 2 wins for Galaxy usually after BTTS. That's my pick here- Galaxy to win and BTTS.
