Key Stats

  • Coach Greg Vanney has a rather lackluster record against Real Salt Lake City, as he won four times, shared the spoils on four occasions, and lost five games.
  • The head-to-head advantage goes to the visitors, as the last 10 games resulted in four Real Salt Lake City wins, three for LA Galaxy, and three ties.
  • Dejan Joveljic is the leading goalscorer for the home team, with six goals since the start of the season.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Vanney will use home-field support

  • HOME: +100 – 50.0%
  • DRAW: +270 – 24.8%
  • AWAY: +260 – 25.2%

*These LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake odds are subject to change

LA Galaxy are the expected winners here. Coach Greg Vanney’s boys have a 50.0% chance of securing three points at home, but we’d like to give the edge to the visitors, as Mastroeni definitely seems like the sort of manager who knows how to get results against this opponent.

LA Galaxy team news and form: Los Angeles side will do their best

LA Galaxy spent the better part of the season so far at the top of the Western Conference table. However, recent misfortune caused the team to drop to 3rd place. We are sure that Dejan Joveljic and his colleagues will get back on the horse, but not before they drop points against Mastroeni’s team.

Player to watch: Dejan Joveljic

Serbian goalscoring maestro Dejan Joveljic earned the right to be featured as the player to watch in our LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake City prediction with his tremendous display for coach Vanney this season.

Joveljic important for LA Galaxy

Dejan Joveljic scored six goals this season, yes, but he also supplied teammates with two assists, so he’s far from being a one-trick pony.
