Galaxy having a tough time
After Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure, the Los Angeles Galaxy cannot even make the playoffs. The year before last, the Galaxy finished in 10th place in the conference. Last year they were 8th. In the current league, the team ranks sixth in the West so far, which means they are still in the postseason. But it's clear that nothing has been decided yet.
In the previous round, the Galaxy lost on their home field to Minnesota with a score of 2-3, conceding three unanswered goals by the end of the first half. Prior to that, the team, which is managed by Greg Vanney, also crashed out of the Cup, losing to the modest Sacramento Republic 1-2.
Montreal aiming for a great season
The Canadian team approaches the matchup with the Los Angeles Galaxy as the Eastern Conference leader. Montreal leads the table with a 9-2-6 balance and a 32-29 goal difference. Last week, French specialist Wilfried Nancy's team outplayed the best team on the continent, the Seattle Sounders, 2-1. The double was scored by forward Mason Toye, who recovered from injury.
The Galaxy have three wins in a row against Montreal.
Expert Betting Tips
The famous Mexican forward Javier Hernandez (Chicharito), who scored 17 goals last season, plays for the Galaxy. The Mexican is not shining in this one with only six goals. Hence, not the highest team output with only 20 goals in 16 games played. The situation might change for the Californians in their upcoming game against Montreal. The Canadiens are topping the standings in the East and have allowed 29 goals in 17 games. The Galaxy have beaten Montreal in three previous head-to-head encounters and it looks like they'll be close to winning for the fourth time in a row.
Prediction: Galaxy will earn points.
