LA Galaxy vs. Sporting Kansas City Betting Preview

LA Galaxy Preview

Constructing an MVP-caliber type of campaign at the halfway mark is Richard Puig. The crafty midfielder is leading his side in goal contributions with 11. The 24-year-old Spaniard is one of the highest shooting midfielders amongst his peers in MLS averaging 3.22 shots per 90 minutes, making him a threat at any moment within a game.

Leading the way in the goals category on this squad is Dejan Joveljic. The 24-year-old has found the back of the net nine times in just over 1000 minutes played in MLS. In his last outing, Joveljic came off the bench and appeared in 31 minutes of play with only one of his two shot attempts hitting the target. With an extended break expect the number nine to start this weekend.

Sporting Kansas City Preview

A wealth of goal contributions is spread out on this current roster, through 17 clashes 12 different players have been able to hit the score sheet. As a collective unit, the team is ranked 10th overall in goals per game averaging 1.5. Only twice in domestic play, SKC have been blanked on the scorers sheet.

At the top of the scoring list for the Wizards is Erik Thommy with four. It’s been a difficult spell for Thommy as he has failed to register a goal in his last seven appearances in all competitions. The midfielder played in all 90 minutes back on June 1 making an impact winning 60 percent of his ground duels and going 90 percent in accurate passes controlling the tempo in the middle of the pitch going 46-for-51.

LA Galaxy vs. Sporting Kansas City - My Pick

In a home-dominant league, it’s hard to go against the play of the LA Galaxy. It’s a run that won’t last forever but the Galaxy’s home unbeaten run should remain intact after this weekend. Their home offence is clicking on all cylinders averaging over two goals per game at Dignity Health Sports Park.

On the other hand, goals have been hard to come by for Kansas City when they perform on the road. SKC is currently averaging 1.13 goals per away match, which will take a monumental overachievement to outscore their competitors in this affair. A well-rested Galaxy squad could stint any hope SKC is looking for trying to win consecutive games.
