The time has come for the Western Conference finals in the MLS, where Los Angeles FC will host Seattle on Tuesday. The hosts had a really interesting match-up against the LA Galaxy in the previous round. Seattle had a much more comfortable job against Real Salt Lake though.
Date/Time: 10-30-2019, 21:00 EST
Spread: Los Angeles FC -1.25
Total: 3.25 Goals
Los Angeles FC are coming off a massive goal-fest at home against the LA Galaxy. They saw forward Carlos Vela score twice in the first 40 minutes.But the Galaxy didn’t give up and pulled even with two goals by the 55th minute. Los Angeles FC answered with two more goals, only for the Galaxy to pull back to one. LAFC eventually sealed the win with another goal at the 80th minute for the final 3-5. LAFC were really hard to beat at home this season (13-1-3) but kept just one clean sheet in their last 13.
The Seattle Sounders were really strong in their home match against Real Salt Lake in the previous round. However, despite their dominance they took the lead at the 64th minute. They scored a safety goal at the 81st minute and easily held on to the result. The Sounders had the 3rd best away record in the Conference (5-8-4), scoring 18 and conceding 28 goals in the process. Bruin and Campbell are still being listed as questionable.
LAFC have remained undefeated in four matches against the Sounders over the years (3-0-1), and earlier in the season they won here by 1-4. They have been on fire all season but I expect Seattle’s experience to at least hold on to the spread.
MLS Playoffs Los Angeles FC vs Seattle Sounders Prediction: Seattle Sounders +1.25 (-107)
