Seattle Sounders FC vs. LA Galaxy 5/5/24

When:Sunday, May 5, 2024, at 6:45 PM ET
Where:Lumen Field

The current betting odds favor the Sounders slightly in terms of the moneyline, but the spread and totals suggest a close game, with a significant lean towards a higher-scoring affair than usual for the Galaxy.

Stefan Frei GK vs. John McCarthy GK

Stefan Frei, the strong-mind goalie of Seattle with 2 clean sheets and 12 saves equaled more success this year. Yet the Souneder’s recent defensive issues, which has manifested in conceding 8 goals, can pose a problem apart from the Galaxy, who has been confidently scoring goals and has the ability to affect the Sounders’ backline.

By contrasting this, we can witness that John McCarthy of the Galaxy has been a savior many times there as he has made 40 saves in 10 starts despite conceding 16 goals. McCarthy saves per the leading scorer Seattle Raúl Ruidíaz is the player who has already scored 6 goals. His resilience will be a huge part in preventing this player from scoring.

Seattle’s Striking Force

Seattle is based around Ruidíaz, who is their sniper and has already made 41 shots, of which, 17 have been aimed at the target. Jordan Morris and Alex Roldan also aid the team, but their brightest spot has been in goals, which has been minuscule. The offense from previous encounters of the Seattle outfit against LA, which has been on a good defensive form lately, will need to be very ruthless to go through.

Offensive Analysis: LA Galaxy

The main offensive weapon of LA Galaxy is led by Dejan Joveljic who has 6 goals in the similar number of shots as Ruidiaz. This suggests a better conversion in their attempts. The dynamic duo of Joseph Paintsil and Ricard Puig, has added 7 more goals to the tally and 8 more assists to complement the receiver’s performance. Their attacking force is more than equipped to ride on the flaws that have become apparent in Seattle’s defense.
