Will Ibrahimovic become the match winner again? Read our full betting prediction and find out the answer!

Major League Soccer ignored the Gold Cup and the regular season was not paused. A summer break is not scheduled in the US and the ball will continue to roll in the coming weeks. The mode in the US is not entirely comparable to that in Central Europe. The league is divided into a Western and Eastern Conference and thus there are two tables where the champions are fixed in the play-offs and the teams determine from two to seven the other three play-off semi-finalists. In the Western Conference is this weekend the top match between LA Galaxy and the San Jose Earthquakes on the program.

LA Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes Today’s Betting Prediction

In the Western Conference, the Los Angeles FC is the sovereign championship leader by a comfortable nine points advantage. First pursuer is local rival LA Galaxy, who has the best chance of a place in the play-offs. The guests from San Jose have to shiver at the play-offs and are currently in sixth place. Especially in foreign countries, the Californians act extremely weak. Accordingly, the clear favorite role of LA Galaxy against the San Jose Earthquakes according to current odds is understandable.

LA Galaxy – Statistics & Current Form

What would the Los Angeles Galaxy be without Zlatan, the big guy? The 37-year-old is a guaranteed success for the team from Los Angeles and has already scored 13 goals in 15 MLS games this season. The second-best scorer in the table second in the Eastern Conference has only scored three goals. Last weekend, the Swedish veteran again was the match winner for the team of head coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

Against the Canadian MLS Club Toronto, he scored both hits and wrote the headlines again. But not only from a sporting point of view: His jersey was flocked with the lettering “Irbahimovic”. Actually, the world-class attacker should be known enough that his name is spelled correctly.

In this 2-0 success, LA Galaxy proved once again the existing home strength. Across the season, the Los Angeles team has won eight of their last 11 home games at Dignity Health Sports Park. The small form crisis (four defeats in series in May) has finally been overcome. The success returned in recent weeks and the Schelotto-Eleven could decide four of the last six league games for themselves. Given the good performance in the home stadium between the LA Galaxy and the San Jose Earthquakes, the prediction for the home win is certainly obvious.

Around the 37-year-old superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic there is another well-known name in the squad with Mexican Jonathan dos Santos (longtime Spain-Legionnaire). Otherwise, big names are searched in vain. However, the fans should note Julian Araujo (right-back) and Efrain Alvarez (right wing, attacking midfielder), as the two youngsters are already regulars in the Schelotto team despite their only 17 years.

Expected lineup of LA Galaxy:
↳ Bingham – Polenta, Gonzalez, Steres, Araujo – Kitchen – Boateng, Favio Alvarez, Corona, Efrain Alvarez – Ibrahimovic

San Jose Earthquakes – Statistics & Current Form

The 2018 season was completely disappointing for the San Jose Earthquakes. With just 21 points, the team finished last in the Western Conference. Also in the Eastern Conference, no team was worse than the team from San Jose. There is no relegation in Major League Soccer, so San Jose was able to restart in 2019. As a new coach, the former professional Matias Almeyda was committed. Under the 45-year-old is a clear improvement can be seen. Already after 19 competitive matches, the Earthquakes are already seven points more on the credit side than in the entire previous season.

There was not even a big change in the squad, because on the whole the almost same team plays as in the previous year. A parallel to LA Galaxy is the fact that an Altstar leads the team. However, Chris Wondowloski is not even half as well known as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on LA Galaxy’s side. But the 36-year-old center-forward was considered for many years as one of the best American attackers (35 caps, eleven goals). This season he is with eight penalties the best scorer for the quakes.

After the messy 2018 season qualifying for the play-offs this season would be a great success. Currently, this is quite possible, because the shape in recent weeks and months is absolutely satisfactory. After four defeats at the start, there were only three defeats in the last 15 games for the Almeyda protected.

The away weakness is not to be dismissed from the hand, because only one of the eight away games could be won. Seasonal even there was only one victory in the recent 14 games on foreign soil. Despite just nine away goals scored between LA Galaxy and San Jose Earthquakes could be the prediction on at least one goal of both teams interesting, because in seven of the eight away games, the Almeyda team was at least once successful.

Expected formation of San Jose Earthquakes:
↳ Vega – Lopez, Jungwirth, Kashia, Thompson – Judson, Yuell – Qazaishvili, Eriksson, Espinoza – Wondolowski
