A Stalemate looks on the cards in tonight's live MLS game in Los Angeles (SS5).
LA Galaxy v FC Dallas - Sunday 21:00, Sky Sports 5
The last round of the regular season is upon us as the teams look to secure their playoff status and jostle for position. However, Galaxy’s win at Houston means that they’ve secured 3rd spot in the Western Conference but can’t catch Colorado in 2nd. Dallas, meanwhile, have won their last two to top the division by two points from Colorado and as a result a point here will ensure they lift the Supporters’ Shield.
Galaxy suffered their first home defeat of the season against Seattle a couple of weeks ago but they have drawn quite a few games, with a W8-D7-L1 home record overall. Indeed, they’ve drawn all three of their home games against top-four sides so far.
Since Dallas have drawn their last two on the road and are yet to beat a top half side away so far this season and with that in mind we’re backing the draw, particularly with Galaxy having little left to play for, whilst Dallas need just a point to pick up the Supporters’ Shield.
