For the second week of the MLS, FC Dallas is looking for its first victory when it receives the Los Angeles Galaxy, which has not yet debuted.
Dallas had a bad start losing at home to Minnesota United (0-1), so they need to change the chip in this game.
For its part, Galaxy was going to debut in 2023 against its derby, Los Angeles FC, but the match was suspended due to weather conditions.
Saturday, March 4 at 8:30 pm ET at the Toyota stadium
FC Dallas +119
Los Angeles Galaxy +226
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on FC Dallas?
FC Dallas, which lost to Austin in the conference semifinals (2-1) last year, started this season on the wrong foot. At home, they fell 0-1 to Minnesota United and disappointed their fans. For this season, Nico Estévez’s team had major changes, neither departures nor arrivals, and it could be said that the incorporation of defender Sebastien Ibeagha is the most important.
The Texans will have to be able to transform the approaches into goals since in the last game they had 11 shots, of which only 1 was on target. Also, they had 62% possession of the ball and 9 corner kicks, however, they were unable to score.
Jesús Ferreira, a World Cup player in Qatar 2022 with the United States and who scored 18 goals last tournament, once again has the mission of commanding his team’s attack. However, much is also expected of the two remaining players in the trio of attackers: Paul Arriola and Alan Velasco.
Why Bet on Los Angeles Galaxy?
The Los Angeles Galaxy has a very good team and hopes to fight for the title again. Just a few months ago they had that illusion, however, they lost in the conference semifinals against their archrival, Los Angeles FC. They were going to debut this season against their neighbors, but the weather made it impossible, so we will have to wait for this game to see Greg Vanney’s team in action, although they didn’t show many good things in the preseason: 2 wins, 3 losses, 8 goals for and 9 against.
Among the team’s notable casualties are those of Víctor Vásquez, Kevin Cabral, and, above all, Samuel Grandsir, who was a regular starter. Even the times that Grandsir came out, it was Cabral who came in, so we will have to see how the coach restructures that.
We could suppose that this year the Spanish Riqui Puig will be more decisive, as well as the young Mexican Efraín Álvarez, who was one of the best in the preseason. “Javier Chicharito” Hernández, Douglas Costa, and Martín Cáceres are the team’s share of experience and seniority.
Final Betting Analysis: FC Dallas vs. Los Angeles Galaxy
It is an interesting duel to watch since FC Dallas lost at home so they will go out to win at any cost, while Los Angeles Galaxy will be opening and there is some uncertainty to see their level of play. The attacking front of the locals was not fine over the weekend, but it is very lethal, and already in the preseason it was evident that the Los Angeles defense is not very tough, however, we believe it will be a tie.
At MyBookie.ag we find that FC Dallas is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of +119, while Los Angeles has +226 and the draw is +248.
