LA Galaxy              

The Galaxy charge into this Saturday’s matchup flashing a 10-7-8 record that ranks them 4th in the Western Conference. Although they’re currently sitting in playoff qualification, many MLS soccer betting pundits feel that LA doesn’t deserve a spot in this year’s postseason. That stance is influenced by LA’s recent lack of success. In fact, the club has picked up a single win in their last 5 matchups. With that in mind, it’s clear the club needs to rebuild its locker room morale. A road win against the Sounders would certainly help in that regard. Unfortunately for the Galaxy, they just happen to be winless in their last 3 matches against Seattle.

Players to Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (19 GP, 15 G, 5 A), Ola Kamara (22 GP, 9 G, 1 A), and Romain Alessandrini (19 GP, 8 G, 5 A).

Seattle Sounders FC

The Sounders blast into this weekend’s action sporting a 9-5-9 record that ranks them 8th in the Western Conference. Although they rank near the bottom of the conference, Seattle only needs to work their way up to the 6th seed in order to snag a seat in this year’s postseason. Right now Real Salt Lake owns that spot in the conference with 35-points on the year. Since the Sounders are sitting on 32, they only need a couple of back to back wins to crack playoff qualification. And since Seattle is 5-0 in their last 5 matchups, it’s looking like they’ll get it. Coming into this matchup with all that momentum, it’s more than likely that Seattle gets the home win.

Players to Watch: Will Bruin (19 GP, 6 G, 5 A), Nicolas Lodeiro (17 GP, 6 G, 4 A), and Cristian Roldan (23 GP, 2 G, 4 A).
