Team News

L.A. Galaxy
Austin FC
  • Jonathon Bond continues to miss out, while both Martin Caceres and Douglas Costa are back in contention after last week's suspensions.
  • Zan Kolmanic has suffered a cruciate ligament injury likely to keep him out until next year, while Julio Cascante will be absent until the end of April with a groin injury.

Prediction

  • LA Galaxy continued there winless start to the campaign with a 3-2 defeat to LAFC last time out, making it three consecutive losses for the Galaxy. With just three points after seven games, already seven points adrift of the playoffs, LA Galaxy are in desperate need of a victory.
  • Austin were held to a goalless draw by Vancouver on the weekend, meaning they are now without a win in four MLS matches.
  • Galaxy have only picked up one point from their three home games so far this campaign, while Austin have failed to score in their last two away appearances. Galaxy have won three of the four past meetings between these two sides.
  • While both sides are struggling for form, Galaxy put up a fight against LAFC and will be boosted by the return of Costa and Caceres from suspension, and could just edge this expectedly tight encounter to earn their first three points of the season.
