LAFC vs LA Galaxy, Prediction & Top Picks: El Trafíco Matchup Tonight cover


We’ve got a battle in LA in the MLS tonight as El Trafíco takes place as the Los Angeles Galaxy host neighbor, LAFC.

This game is full of stars both on the field and in the crowd, so let’s discuss this celebrity-filled evening in BMO Stadium!

LAFC vs LA Galaxy Game Information

The entire city of Los Angeles is tuning into this one as the two MLS squads face off.

LAFC currently sits in 3rd place in the Western Conference with 40 points, while the Galaxy are 2nd to last with just 30. Their season will probably not make it to the playoffs, but tonight they play for city pride.

LA Squads Meet Again

LAFC LA Galaxy Prediction Top Picks

In all competitions, these teams have played three separate times this year.

The Galaxy hosted LAFC in MLS play back in April, where they were outplayed and lost 3-2 on their home turf.

The Galaxy would get their revenge a month later in the U.S Open Cup, where they beat LAFC on the road 2-0.

Their next meeting came on July 4th, where once again, the Galaxy beat LAFC 2-1 in front of their home crowd.

Now they meet again in a game where the Galaxy are just playing for pride. They are +420 on the ML and have already beaten this team twice this year.

Surely this is a game where LAFC comes out in dominant fashion and gains three much needed points?

LAFC LA Galaxy Prediction Top Picks

The Pick: LAFC Win and BTTS Yes (+160) Bovada

We’re gonna root for a little fun in this one.

I see LAFC winning. They need the points, they are the superior team, they will do whatever it takes to win.

However it’s been proven that the Galaxy can hang with them on the offensive end since they’ve netted two each time they’ve squared off.

I think we see a 2-1 or 3-1 LAFC victory tonight, so I would not be too comfortable taking the total.

Instead we will throw some beans on this guy and have some fun tonight in LA.
