LA Galaxy to Win

Galaxy made the trip to Miami and proved their credentials in an exciting second-half display. This time around, they will be in the comfort of Dignity Health Sports Park while their rivals make the over 2,700-mile distance. Jet lag will play its part, so will the knowledge of the home ground. It should allow Greg Varney’s men to take home the three points on offer and build on their win in the season opener.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The first half at DRV PNK Stadium hinted that LA had not learnt from their mistakes from the coronavirus marred 2020 MLS season. But Galaxy managed a turnaround as four goals were seen in the second period. With New York Red Bulls getting ahead but ultimately were on the wrong end of a similar second-half demolition job, shows that goals should be expected in the fixture.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

It was Inter Miami who took the lead and left LA ruing their mistakes at half-time. They would concede again but outscore their rivals. New York Red Bulls got on the scoreboard first but could not hold their lead due to their defensive issues. With Varney yet to resort his defensive issues, expect them to ship in goals. But they have a capable enough forward line-up that should allow them to outscore their rivals.

LA Galaxy vs New York Red Bulls Fixture Preview

LA Galaxy

Galaxy has always been home to star payers. This time around, they have the exceptional Javier Hernandez in their roster. The Mexico international did not impress in his first season but began the current one with a brace against Inter Miami. If he could continue his goalscoring form, Varney’s issues at the front will be resolved. However, LA’s defensive issues persist. They conceded 46 goals last season, at an average of more than two goals per game, and it remains their Achilles heel.

New York Red Bulls

Distance matters. And it will when the Bulls make the cross country trip. They are coming in the fixture on the back of a 1-2 defeat to Sporting Kansas City at the Red Bull Arena. Their woes will be compounded as Gerhard Struber sends his charges out in the enemy territory. However, it will be interesting to see how 17-year-old Caden Clark performs after his goalscoring start to the season. The wunderkind scored thrice in the 2020 campaign and has shown he can be the breakthrough home recruit for New York Red Bulls.
