LA Galaxy vs Portland Timbers Dream11 Preview
With 2 Major League Soccer wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats from their home games, LA Galaxy are certainly not brimming with confidence. Regardless of arena the trend is looking very unhealthy for Galaxy with their four defeats in a row. Not since the SJ Earthquakes game, 23 days ago, have they avoided a loss. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Galaxy, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.
LA Galaxy faced defeat in their previous match, away at SJ Earthquakes (1-2). Ahead of that match, Galaxy lost 1-3 at home to Seattle Sounders.
The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It’s interesting to look at how Galaxy have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found eleven games) they have won seven times, drawn one and lost three.
The manager G. Barros Schelotto will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Colorado Rapids in only three days.
Galaxy are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 9 goals in 7 games. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 11 goals have been conceded.
