Total goals over 2.5

LA Galaxy have been able to find the back of the net with good consistency and they are helped by the presence of renowned goalscorers like Javier Hernandez. It is interesting that the home matches have been the source of goals for Galaxy, five goals in the last two matches at the Dignity Health Sports Park.

Javier Hernandez to score anytime

Hernandez played a crucial role in the 2-1 win over Los Angeles as he scored and set up a goal. In his 12 appearances during the 2020 campaign, Hernandez had limited impact in terms of goals. However, he is starting to show the true prowess this season and he is already up to 6 goals for the campaign. Hernandez has scored in all home matches for Galaxy this season.
