LA Galaxy vs Dallas Major League Soccer Team News

LA Galaxy

LA Galaxy have had a nightmare MLS campaign. A string of injuries and lack of form have seen the team fail to make it to the play-offs. LA Galaxy appeared to have given up on the season a while ago. In the last six MLS games, the team has picked up only one victory.

Throughout the season, the team has only managed eight league wins. After enjoying a third-place finish in the 2022 campaign, it has been a disappointing outcome for LA Galaxy on all fronts.

Greg Vanney comes into the match still missing a number of players. Riqui Puig is the big absentee with his ankle injury keeping him out for a while. Gaston Brugman and Martin Caceres are suffering from knee injuries while Javier Hernandez and Lucas Calegari are long-term casualties with cruciate ligament problems. Marco Delgado is unlikely to be risked for this match following a head injury.

FC Dallas

FC Dallas have been unable to match the exploits of the 2022 season when they finished in the fourth spot. However, the team will be able to take their play-off ambitions to the last day of the regular season. There are plenty of permutations with regards to Dallas being able to celebrate or regret the campaign based on results on the final day.

Nico Estevez comes into the match with a handful of injury problems led by Tarik Scott’s cruciate ligament tear. Geovane Jesus will also be on the sidelines because of a knee injury, while Facundo Quignon will be undergoing a late fitness test following his knock in the last match. Sebastian Lletget is still not 100% ready for the game yet.

LA Galaxy vs FC Dallas Predicted Lineup – Featured Duel: Jesus Ferreira vs Ranko Veselinovic

Jesus Ferreira has been the best player for FC Dallas so far this season. His 12 goals and three assists have been immensely helpful in keeping the club in contention for the play-off places going into the last day. The 22-year-old has produced several match-winning performances of late with his recent big contribution against San Jose Earthquakes in the 1-1 draw being noteworthy.

LA Galaxy will look to stop Ferreira through the exploits of Maya Yoshida, who has been one of the best players for the team in an otherwise disappointing campaign. The 35-year-old has a ton of experience and he was one of the best players for Galaxy in the recent 2-2 draw with Real Salt Lake.

LA Galaxy vs FC Dallas Predicted Lineup – The Final Word

LA Galaxy are playing for pride in the final regular-season match but that is not the case with Dallas, who are gunning for a play-off place. This is likely to help Dallas make that extra push and pick up a victory. FC Dallas could just pick up their first win in seven games.
