Real Salt Lake has the fewest points in MLS so the Galaxy should be using this as a way to pad their spot in the standings on the 4th of July.
Real Salt Lake
Real Salt Lake is also going on a quick turnaround by they played on Friday, losing 1-0 against Orlando FC. They have not played well on the road this season.
Luis Silva was seen as the future of the club when he arrived but through 17 games this season he has no goals and just 1 assist. His return from his native Mexico has not elevated the squad at all.
Real has already lost once to L.A. this season but has held their own over the years with a 12-14-8 record. That being said the Galaxy have beaten Real every time they have me in the playoffs including last season.
The Galaxy have been the signature franchise of MLS but this is definitely not a signature year.
They have had a hard time fielding the lineups they want and for this game they find themselves on a very quick turnaround after losing to San Jose on Saturday as part of the Cali Classico. Sometimes I wonder how soccer comes up with its schedules. They can be brutal and make no sense.
Ashley Cole is probably the biggest name on the Galaxy and he did not play against San Jose. He should be well enough to take the pitch in this one but there are no guarantees as to form.
Leading goal scorer Romain Alessandrini also was a scratch against SJ but should be in the lineup as well. He leads in assists too so when he is out the offense is really not that threatening.
Usually the Galaxy are a threat for the MLS Cup but this year they seem more like a middling squad. The real question is whether this team has it in them to go on any sort of run to create some breathing space. If not they definitely cannot afford a loss to lowly Real Salt Lake.
L.A. does have the advantage of having a game in hand against several teams ahead of them in the standings. They just have to take advantage of the opportunity in this one and others.
Free Real Salt Lake vs. L.A. Galaxy MLS Prediction:
You might not have known this but the Galaxy have regularly hosted matches on the 4th of July. This time they get an opponent that makes it look like it should be an easy win. They have a great record on this day.
4* Free MLS Betting Pick: L.A. Galaxy to win.
L.A. has only lost on 2 of the last 15 Fourth of July games. They are definitely a good bet at pretty good favourite odds.
