Betting Predictions for LA Galaxy vs Charlotte

LA Galaxy vs Charlotte at Dignity Health Sports Park is the semi-last clash on matchday 15 and we anticipate it to be the cherry on top. In our LA Galaxy vs Charlotte predictions below you’ll find out if that’ll be the case.

Draw or Charlotte

The key thing Charlotte have to do is not get starstruck by the presence of some famous players on the visitors’ roster. The likes of Chicharito and Riqui Puig come to mind. Douglas Costa as well but he’s injured so he’s out of the picture.

The only game between these two ended with an unconvincing 1-0 win for LA Galaxy so perhaps Charlotte really aren’t that much of an underdog on Sunday. After all, Charlotte acquired twice as many points in the 2023 MLS race as LA Galaxy did.

Over 1.5 Charlotte Goals

The key reason behind our second LA Galaxy vs Charlotte prediction is not some outstanding form by Charlotte’s side but rather the many defensive squad issues on coach Greg Vanney’s plate. His two chief defenders – Sega Coulibaly and Chris Mavinga are both injured which will undoubtedly open a huge hole at the center of the defense for the visitors to exploit.

The previous game between the two teams ended with a narrow 1-0 win for LA Galaxy so we’re sure Charlotte will be more than eager to get sweet revenge.

LA Galaxy vs Charlotte Lineups & Team News

LA Galaxy

With measly eight points to their name, coach Greg Vanney’s boys deserve to be at the bottom of the table in the Western Conference. They also deserve to be the outsiders in our LA Galaxy vs Charlotte prediction as they allowed for some surprising results at home this season. The 1-2 loss versus Seattle Sounders and the 1-3 thrashing they took from Colorado Rapids come to mind.

Predicted lineup – Bond (GK), Aude, Neal, Caceres, Calegari, Puig, Delgado, Brugman, Boyd, Joveljic & Chicharito

Charlotte

Despite the rather slow start coach Christian Lattanzio’s boys have had, they managed to pick up the pace with a couple of good results in the Eastern Conference. They were even close to poaching points away from the unbeatable Nashville last week when coach Gary Smith’s boys barely made it out alive with a 1-2 score at Bank of America Stadium.

Predicted lineup – Kahlina (GK), Byrne, Malanda, Sobocinski, Lindsey, Jones, Bronico, Westwood, Meram, Swiderski & Copetti

Player to Watch: Kamil Jozwiak

This week, we pick a central midfielder as the player to watch in the long-awaited LA Galaxy vs Charlotte rematch. Kamil Jozwiak is a stunning winger and we’re sure he’ll have a few good moments to deliver.

Kamil Jozwiak is not Charlotte’s leading goalscorer in the 2023 MLS campaign so far, striker Enzo Copetti is, but he still managed to slide it past the goalkeepers on two occasions.

However, scoring goals is not his primary task given to him by coach Christian Lattanzio. His goal is to create and that’s what he’s been doing this season. He’s the top assists provider with four to his name already and he may have a good chance to supply another one this week, given the fact that LA Galaxy’s defense is shaken by injuries.
