The match

Despite back to back-to-back draws Seattle Sounders lead the way at the top of the Western Conference with 18 points after eight games. Their hosts meanwhile, LA Galaxy are in third but a win here would take them level on points with Seattle and with a game in hand. The Galaxy secured their third win in four games with a 1-0 victory over San Jose Earthquakes at the end of May before the international break while Seattle were held by debutants Austin FC 0-0 in their most recent fixture. 

These sides have already met once this season and that game went the way of the Sounders who romped to a 3-0 victory at Lumen Field at the start of May. That was a start of a four-game winning run for Seattle but consecutive draws with Atlanta United (1-1) and Austin leaves them within touching distance of the chasing pack. Seattle are the second-highest scoring side in the league with 14 goals and also hold the best defensive record in the division with just three goals conceded. Five of the six sides behind them have conceded at least 11 goals while they have allowed for just 0.375 goals on average per match.  

Since their loss in Seattle, LA Galaxy have won three of their four matches and now find themselves in third place with games in hand over those above them. Wins over LAFC (2-1), Austin FC (2-0) and San Jose Earthquakes should give the hosts confidence coming into this game and their home form is also encouraging. The Galaxy have won each of their four home matches so far this season scoring eight times whilst conceding three goals. They are one of only two teams with a 100% home record across the MLS and the only team in the Western Conference to have taken maximum points from their home matches.  

Key Statistics

  • Seattle have conceded just three goals this term.
  • Each of LA Galaxy’s last two home games have featured two goals or less.
  • Each of Seattle’s last four matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored.

The bet of our experts

Seattle may have ran out comfortable 3-0 winners when these teams met six weeks ago but the Galaxy have improved since and have been grinding out wins. I feel if either side is to get all three points here it will be well-earned as this is likely to be a tight encounter so back under 2.5 goals here.
