Our prediction for this MLS match:
There will be fireworks when Los Angeles FC and Los Angeles Galaxy, the two bitter local rivals face each other at Banc of California Stadium in what is expected to be a real football festival. Los Angeles FC impressed in the regular season, with the team finishing the process in top position in the Western Conference, 16 points clear of second-placed Seattle Sounders.
Bob Bradley’s men are eager to win their first ever MLS Cup and they are likely to go all guns blazing at their local rivals in Friday’s football match. Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s troops did well to beat Minnesota United in the Western Conference quarter-finals, with Jonathan dos Santos and Sebastian Lletget scoring for the away team. However, a man to keep an eye on in the away side will be Swedish veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. However, Los Angeles FC are more of a team than Los Angeles Galaxy and home win should be considered.
