Essential Dallas vs La Galaxy Predictions for MLS

All of you MLS fans are in for a treat as it’s time for one of the most glamorous events in the league – the Dallas vs LA Galaxy showdown.

Chicharito to Score Anytime

The former Manchester United star was ever-present for LA Galaxy last season and it’s no wonder why he’s team captain now. At the age of 34, Javier Hernandez is without a doubt the big star at coach Greg Vanney’s disposal.

He averaged 0.53 goals per game in the last MLS campaign. With 18 goals to his name in 2022, he came seven goals short of the top goalscorer award. Chicharito was on the pitch for 2778 minutes last season and we’re convinced that he’ll be a certain starter in the 2023 race as well.

Over 3.5 Goals

Believe it or not, six of the last 10 games between the two teams ended with over 3.5 goals. With that in mind, we highly recommend this Dallas vs LA Galaxy prediction as both managers also want to have a solid 2023 MLS start this year.

Dallas’ opening game versus Toronto was a lackluster 0-1 loss and we highly doubt we’ll see a second consecutive disappointing game from coach Nico Estevez’s boys. There were certainly enough good goalscoring opportunities in the game as 19 shots at target were made.

Predicted Lineups, Team News, and Last Result


The fans at Toyota Stadium on the 26th of February were right to be disappointed. Dallas didn’t show anything from last season’s tremendous performance and got pipped with a thrifty 0-1 win by Minnesota. Coach Nico Estevez’s perfect 2-0-0 record against LA Galaxy is in jeopardy and he has to act quickly to fix the errors in his team.

Predicted lineup – Paes (GK), Farfan, Ibeagha, Martinez, Twumasi, Pomykal, Lletget, Quignon, Velasco, Arriola & Ferreira

LA Galaxy

This will be LA Galaxy’s opening game to the season and we’re anxious to find out how their pre-season games prepared coach Greg Vanney’s boys for the task at Toyota Stadium. If history is any indication, Dallas should trash LA Galaxy on Sunday. After all, the visitors have a poor record against this opponent and our Dallas vs LA Galaxy predictions couldn’t willy-nilly ignore the great 7-1-2 Dallas record over coach Greg Vanney’s side.

Predicted lineup – Bond (GK), Mavinga, Caceres, Coulibaly, Edwards, Delgado, Brugman, Leerdman, Puig, Joveljic & Chicharito

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced 1hr before the kick-off

Player to Watch: Riqui Puig

The former Barcelona wonderkid joined LA Galaxy’s ranks back in 2022 but he didn’t need much time to adapt. Riqui Puig immediately made an impact and is now rightfully a firm starter for his new side. The 23-year-old was quite blunt and said that his goal was to prove coach Xavi wrong and that it was a mistake for the Barcelona legend to transfer him to MLS. And it’s that sort of fire in coach Greg Vanney’s team that makes our Dallas vs LA Galaxy prediction all the more likely to be a success.
