Dallas vs LA Galaxy prediction: Galaxy to turn the tides

Key Stats

  • LA Galaxy won the last official head-to-head against the Bulls.
  • After 23 matches played, LA Galaxy have won 12 times.
  • We saw over 2.5 goals in seven of the last eight Dallas vs LA Galaxy head-to-heads.

Correct score prediction: Dallas 1-2 LA Galaxy

LA Galaxy’s last official victory in Major League Soccer was last week when coach Vanney’s boys won 2-1. Seeing as LA Galaxy managed to defeat the Bulls 3-1 in their previous encounter, we believe another one-goal win isn’t out of the question here.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Bookies with the right choice

  • HOME: +170 – 36.3%
  • DRAW: +250 – 24.0%
  • AWAY: +140 – 39.7%

*These Dallas vs LA Galaxy odds are subject to change

As you can see from the odds above, we have LA Galaxy down as the expected winners, with a solid enough 39.7% win probability ahead of the kick-off. Despite the home-field advantage at Toyota Stadium behind them, the Bulls’ odds at +170 barely imply a 36.3% win probability.

Last five H2Hs: Bulls with the advantage

Surprisingly enough, the Bulls did better in the last couple of head-to-heads.

Dallas team news and form: Illarramendi's absence hits Dallas hard

Illarramendi was on the bench in the game against Sporting Kansas City last week. Why? Maybe he had some health issues which coach Peter Luccin is trying to hide. Doesn’t matter, if he doesn’t play against LA Galaxy, we just don’t see the Bulls winning this one.

Predicted lineup: Paes (GK), Tafari, Gonzalez, Junqua, Pondeca, Norris, Twumasi, Sealy, Ntsabeleng, Kamungo & Farrington

LA Galaxy team news and form: Immediate reply by LA Galaxy

Coach Vanney’s boys lost the LA derby but were thrifty enough to beat another one of their key rivals in the Western Conference – Minnesota United. Vanney himself was able to count on his star duo Puig – Joveljic in the attack, whish is another reason we believe our Dallas vs LA Galaxy predictions will succeed.

Predicted lineup: McCarthy (GK), Caceres, Nelson, Yoshida, Yamane, Delgado, Fagundez, Pec, Puig, Paintsil & Joveljic

Player to watch: Dejan Joveljic

Joveljic is the leading finisher for LA Galaxy in 2024. So far, he found the net on 12 occasions, meaning he should be among the starters for coach Vanney as well. There aren’t that many suitable replacements to pick from, so Vanney’s hands are tied.

Second player to watch: Gabriel Pec

Pec is one of the most consistent performers for the visitors in 2024. He scored nine goals and aided his team with seven assists, making him LA Galaxy’s key creator, beating Joveljic with two assists.
