LA Galaxy vs Charlotte FC verdict
LA Galaxy recorded a surprise 2-0 win over cross-town rivals Los Angeles FC in the US Open Cup on Wednesday. Tyler Boyd and Riqui Puig scored for the Galaxy. Meanwhile, Charlotte FC were dumped out by lower league USL side Birmingham Legion FC, losing 1-0. The visitors made several changes with their focus on this match. Ashley Westwood and Nathan Byrne are likely to return to the starting line-up as Charlotte look to tighten things up, but they've yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels. LA's recent home form has seen them record back-to-back wins over San Jose Earthquakes and Seattle Sounders. Although he isn't scoring frequently, Javier Hernandez has been key since his recent return. Chicharito provides a focal point in attack and his superior movement could seek out gaps. We're projecting this game to be full of high-quality chances, potentially enough to find four or more goals. LA have found the net in every home match and at least twice in four of five. Charlotte have already beaten Orlando (2-1) and Atlanta United (3-1) on their travels this season, so we know they're a threat. Greg Vanney's side have kept one clean sheet in their last nine MLS matches and with how open they tend to play, one goal isn't going to cut it here. They may need two or three. LA are a reasonable enough price to back, but you could always go with the -0.75 Asian handicap to boost the odds. We also advise a bet on over 2.5 goals.
