LA Galaxy vs Minnesota United Pick
MLS’ Decision Day is here!
With 13 games being played, it’s going to be a whirlwind of goals and position changes within the final weekend of the regular season.
That said, few games may garner more attention than LA Galaxy vs Minnesota United, who are both vying for postseason places.
For the Galaxy, a win is their best path towards qualifying for the playoffs.
Barring a handful of different matches working in their favor, they’ll need three points to essentially not depend on others and gain a postseason invitation on their own.
Looking over at Minnesota, their spot in the playoff race is a bit easier.
With one more point than the Galaxy, Minnesota will simply need a win or draw to go through.
So who has the upper hand here?
It’s easy to focus on Minnesota who have been slightly better in recent weeks, but nonetheless, it should be the Galaxy here who may claim the victory.
With a home-field advantage and an in-form star player, the home side will be feeling confident.
Pick the Galaxy for the win. (+100)
LA Galaxy vs Minnesota United Prediction
It all comes down to Sunday.
By the time the weekend is over, we’ll officially know which 14 teams are going to take part in this year’s MLS playoffs.
And as for the Galaxy and Minnesota, nothing is guaranteed just yet.
While Minnesota will need to make an impression in their away trip, the Galaxy will have to hit the ground running at home.
The good news for them is that they haven’t been too bad at Dignity Health Sports Park.
Galaxy Will Have No Excuses At Home
They’ve had some hiccups in the past, but in recent months, the Galaxy have looked respectable on their home turf.
At Dignity Health Sports Park, they’ve been undefeated in their last four appearances.
In fact, the main reason they’ve struggled over the last couple of months is due to their away form.
If you were to take away their four losses outside of Los Angeles, the Galaxy would currently be on an undefeated run since the start of September.
It’s a promising sign ahead of this weekend, especially up against a Minnesota squad that have had their own share of problems away from home.
Minnesota Haven’t Gotten Job Done On Unfamiliar Grounds
They may be heading into the weekend at 5th in the Western Conference table, but if we only looked at away results, Minnesota would drop down to 9th in the standings.
Minnesota only have one away win since September, and that was against a listless Austin FC.
It’s not as if they’re cruising to draws either.
In their last six away matches, Minnesota have slumped through one win, one draw and four losses.
Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez’s Moment Of Redemption
2021 has so far been a story of revival for the Galaxy’s Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez.
Despite the fact that he’s had injury issues that have only made him available for 60% of matches this season, the Mexican striker remains a top 10 player when it comes to MLS’ goalscorers.
He has 15 goals and two assists in just 20 appearances, and in his last four games, he’s been vital with three goals and one assist.
If there was ever a time for him to step up and take charge, now would be a fantastic opportunity.
