La Galaxy La vs Houston Dynamo Hou Picks and Predictions May 25th 2024

Galaxy Aim for Victory at Home Against Dynamo

Home Advantage

The Los Angeles Galaxy are eager to turn their recent string of draws into a win as they host the Houston Dynamo on Saturday. The Galaxy (5-2-7, 22 points) have drawn their last four matches, most recently a 0-0 stalemate against Charlotte FC last Saturday.

Back at home after playing four of their last five games on the road, the Galaxy are ready to leverage their unbeaten home record (2-0-3). They are one of only three MLS teams yet to lose on their own pitch.

“This is a big phase for us to really build some momentum in all ways, being in front of our fans and being at home for this next stretch,” Galaxy coach Greg Vanney said. “Obviously, we’ve got to go on the road once more, but hopefully build on the momentum and get some points.”

Key Players

Joseph Paintsil, who is second on the team with four goals, has been in a bit of a slump, not scoring in the last four games and only providing one assist during that period. The Galaxy will be looking for him to regain his form and help break their drawing streak.

Dynamo’s Perspective

The Dynamo (5-5-3, 18 focuses) are presently eighth in the Western Meeting and could climb to fifth with a success. They are falling off a 1-1 draw against FC Dallas and have battled as of late with a 1-3-2 record in their last six matches.

Amine Bassi scored in first-half stoppage time to give Houston a lead against Dallas, yet they couldn’t hang tight, surrendering in the last part.

“This is a lesson-learning moment because we’re tired of dropping points,” Dynamo coach Ben Olsen said. “That’s not a happy group in the locker room after tying against a team that we should beat at home.”

Offensive and Defensive Stats

The Dynamo have found goals hard to come by, scoring just 12 times this season, the fewest in the Western Conference. Ibrahim Aliyu leads the team with four goals, while Bassi, last season’s top scorer with 10, has just one this season.

Houston’s strength lies in their defense, having conceded only 13 goals, which is tied for the second fewest in MLS and the best in the conference.

Match Outlook

Both teams are eager for three points. The Galaxy are looking to leverage their home advantage and break their drawing streak, while the Dynamo aim to climb the standings with a much-needed win. Fans can expect a tightly contested match as each side fights to achieve their objectives.
