Given FC Dallas’s recent struggle, losing four out of their last five games, it appears that they are on shaky ground. In contrast, LAFC has shown resilience this year, suffering only four losses out of 18 MLS matches.
Dallas has notably had difficulties scoring recently, with no goals in their last three games. This sets up an opportunity for LAFC to regain their footing following a surprise 3-2 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps. This stumble seems more of an anomaly rather than a trend for LAFC, suggesting a probable victory in their upcoming match against Dallas.
As current MLS Cup holders and one of the strongest teams in the MLS Western Conference, LAFC is holding steady, neck-and-neck with conference leaders St. Louis City. They’ve displayed impressive form, winning consecutive matches against Sporting Kansas City and Seattle Sounders prior to their unexpected defeat against the Whitecaps.
In the Vancouver match, LAFC had more possession and created better opportunities but was disadvantaged by conceding two early goals within the first 23 minutes. They are anticipated to work on preventing an early setback in their next game, and considering FC Dallas’s recent form, they’re not expected to pose a significant challenge.
Dallas’s latest run includes a crushing 3-0 defeat by Austin, indicating they might be a wise choice to bet against in the forthcoming fixture. With Dallas’s recent goal drought in mind, our betting prediction is a 2-0 victory for LAFC at 12/1.
