We had opportunities where you choose to playthe ball hard across the six, you try to develop ideas that can become habits and then they happen so natural, Bradley said after the game. You score more by being a little bit sharper.

One thing we are predicting from this game is goals, over 2.5 of them to be exact, as both teams have been scoring and conceding on a regular basis over the last month or so. With four wins and two draws from their last six matches, LA FC head into their second ever match against Minnesota United as the clear form favourites. Five of Minnesotas last six matches and four of LA FCs have featured over 2.5 goals, a trend we expect to continue on Monday. Minnesota have been more inconsistent than their guests during the last six matches, winning three times and losing three times.

Current Form

Protecting the goal for LAFC is Tyler Miller from the United States. Miller is giving up an average of 0.96 goals per 90 mins which puts him at 1st in the Western Conference and 2nd in MLS. He is 25 years old and has totaled 2,070 minutes in goal for the year. During the 2019 season, he's given up 22 goals. He's earned a save % of .744 which puts him at 3rd in the Western Conference.

Were tipping them to grab a goal again this week, but they look destined to lose again against a formidable Los Angeles FC outfit. They have found a successful route to goal in four of their five away matches despite losing all but one of them. Alongside our home win/both teams to score selection, were backing LA to be leading at half time and full time this week.
