Next Sunday at 5:00am GMT, on matchday 35 of the MLS, we will see Galaxy play Caps at StubHub Center.

It’s a clash of ninth vs eleventh, as Galaxy host Caps at StubHub Center.

LA Galaxy face their opponents, equal on points, with both keen to make progress

It was three points secured for Galaxy in their last fixture, beating Sporting Kansas City 4-2 at Children’s Mercy Park.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so six losses in seven games would not make this a successful season for Galaxy. With 30 points (0W, 0L and 0D), they are established in ninth position in the League.

Galaxy have won six fixtures, drawn one game, and lost five games of their 12 League matches at home this season.

Winning this fixture will see LA Galaxy on 33 points.

Vancouver Whitecaps face his opponents with equal points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Caps will take a huge positive from their recent 2-1 win against Houston Dynamo at BC Place Stadium.

Also, Caps are quickly becoming the MLS’s draw specialists, having recorded three in their last five fixtures. With 30 points, they currently sit eleventh in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

With a poor record on the road, which amounts to two victories, three draws, and seven losses, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Caps as they travel once more.

Vancouver Whitecaps will have 33 points if they manage to secure a victory.
